Hohokam Farming on the Salt River Floodplain: Excavations at the Sky Harbor Airport North Runway

Editor(s): T. Kathleen Henderson

Year: 2003


Archaeological monitoring, testing, and data recovery in advance of construction related to the expansion of Sky Harbor International Airport's North Runway, including the realignment of 24th Street north of Buckeye Road. The work was authorized by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for the purpose of compliance with Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, as amended, and conducted in accordance with a Memorandum of Agreement (1993) executed by the FAA with the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation and the Arizona State Historic Preservation Office for the treatment of cultural resources on airport property. The archaeological work was prompted by the possibility that prehistoric features related to the Dutch Canal Ruin, AZ T:12:62 (ASM)- a National Register-eligible site situated west of the airport-and prehistoric (Canal Patricio, AZ T:12:131 [ASM]) and historic (Dutch Ditch) canals would be present within the airport grounds.
