An Archaeological Testing Program at AZ U:9:8 (ARS)

Author(s): Mark Hackbarth

Year: 1989


In August 1989, Northland Research, Inc. (Northland) conducted subsurface testing at AZ U:9:8 (ARS) a Hohokam artifact scatter situated within the Salt River Project’s Papago Park Center property. The site was identified during an archaeological survey conducted by Archaeological Resources Services, Inc. (ARS) and reported in Fedick and Stone (1986). The testing fieldwork was conducted as part of an agreement between Northland and Salt River Project (SRP) to evaluate the preservation of subsurface archaeological resources at the site.

Northland conducted the archaeological testing on 30 and 31 August 1989. The field effort was accomplished in approximately 3 person-days. The testing program was supervised by Mark Hackbarth with assistance from Judith Lancaster.

The fieldwork consisted of a surface artifact count and 124.5 meters of trench excavations within the triangular property. The surface artifacts were concentrated on the western third of the property; a low density scatter of sherds, lithics and ground stone artifacts were observed. No subsurface features were identified and the total number of artifacts observed at the site was less than 100.
