Archaeological Data Recovery for the Santan Mountains Land Exchange
In December 1988, Archaeological Consulting Services, Ltd. (ACS) conducted an archaeological survey in and around the eastern portion of the Santan Mountains in preparation for a land exchange between Julian Berry and the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Phoenix District Office (Adams et al . 1989). As a result, 13 sites, 112 artifact scatters, and 284 isolated finds were recorded. Testing and data recovery measures were recommended for six of the sites.The sites are located within the Basin and Range physiographic province. The local topography consists of low to moderate slopes in the bajada at the base of the Santan Mountains and the steeper slopes and peaks of the mountains. Elevations range from 1500 to 2020 ft (457-616 m) . The vegetation is characteristic of the Arizona Upland subdivision of the Sonoran Desertscrub community and includes plants primarily from the palo verde-cacti-mixed scrub series (Turner and Brown 1982:200-202). Some of the lower and more level sections of the project area include vegetation from the creosote bush-white bursage series of the Lower Colorado River Valley subdivision of the Sonoran Desert scrub community.
