A Work Plan for Further Investigations of Archaeological Sites Along the 500kV Tonto National Forest Boundary to Kyrene Transmission Line Route, Coronado Station Project, Pinal and Maricopa Counties, Arizona
Author(s): John M. Antieau
An intensive survey of approximately 67 km (42 mi) of transmission line right-of-way between Kyrene and the Tonto National Forest boundary was completed by a 3-man crew in 15 days. A total of 144 field numbers were assigned to cultural materials encountered, ranging from a single flake or sherd to a large site or component thereof. Material recovered is summarized in Table 1, and locations are plotted on accompanying aerial photos. Isolated artifacts and small scatters were collected; samples (1 m radius circles) were collected from larger sites in areas of maximum density of cultural material (MD). Two previously recorded sites and 15 newly designated sites are within or adjacent to the right- of-way. A clearance recommendation is conditional upon additional work at 9 of them.
This work plan for additional investigations was prepared prior to completion of analysis of material collected on the survey and does not constitute a complete report of survey results. For example, no discussion of archaeological background or survey methodology is included. Specific proposals for further investigations are based largely on field evaluations of site significance and anticipated impact of construction. Results of both the survey and the additional investigation will be combined in a single report.
