Archaeological Survey at Williams Air Force Base, Arizona: A Class III Inventory


In consultation with the Arizona State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO), HALLIBURTON NUS conducted a preliminary data collection effort and "Class I Overview" of the Williams AFB property and surrounding area. This consisted of a literature search and review of files at the SHPO.

The Class I Overview identified three archaeological sites on the Williams AFB property. The Midvale Site (AZ U:10:24, ASU) consists of a large prehistoric Hohokam village considered to be of cultural importance. The site has been studied in some detail, delineated, and listed on the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP). The two other sites (AZ U:10:20, ASU, and AZ U:10:25, ASU) have been preliminarily identified on the basis of surface artifacts. Their areal extent has not been well defined, and it is not known whether they possess attributes that would qualify them for eligibility for the NRHP. A small portion of Site AZ U:10:20 (ASU) has received test excavations, but these efforts resulted in few data that would support NRHP eligibility of this site within Williams AFB (Goodfellow 1989). Most of the rest of the Williams AFB property had not been examined prior to this time for the presence of archaeological resources. However, because numerous such sites exist in the area surrounding Williams AFB, a strong possibility that other areas of the base also contain archaeological resources was considered likely.
