Tonto Creek Archaeological Project, Archaeological Investigations along Tonto Creek, Volume 2: Site Descriptions for the Punkin Center Section

Editor(s): Jeffery J. Clark; James M. Vint

Year: 2000


The Tonto Creek Archaeological Project (TCAP) area was located in the Tonto Basin of east-central Arizona. The project, funded by the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) was undertaken by Desert Archaeology in advance of the 1994-1996 realignment of Arizona State Route 188. The area available for investigation was a 61-m-wide (200-ft) corridor centered on the planned route for the realigned highway. The corridor followed a 13.3-km (8-mi) stretch of the western terrace overlooking Tonto Creek floodplain. The two volumes of Anthropological Papers Number 22 contain the site and non-mortuary feature descriptions in addition to background information regarding project methods, chronology, and the local environment. Volume 1 contains the introductory material and the Slate Creek and Sycamore Creek site descriptions. Volume 2 is devoted entirely to sites investigated in the Punkin Center section. Mortuary features descriptions are presented in Archaeological Papers Number 24.
