Archaeological Testing of a Portion of Pueblo Del Alamo, Site AZ T:12:18 (ASU)

Author(s): Mark L. Chenault; David H. Greenwald

Year: 1990


An archaeological testing program was undertaken at a portion of Pueblo del Alamo (AZ T: 12:18 ASU). The project area encompasses 10 acres and contains a part of the site. It is located at the southwest corner of 59th Avenue and Lower Buckeye Road. Forty-one trenches were placed, systematically and judgmentally, within the 10 acre parcel. Thirty-five cultural features were found. Eight of the features are of historic date and 27 appear to be prehistoric. The Prehistoric occupation spans the period from the Gila Butte phase through the Civano phase. All of the cultural features are located in the northeastern portion of the project area. Avoidance of this area is recommended. Because no cultural remains were found outside of that area, archaeological clearance is recommended for the remainder of the parcel.
