Archaeological Investigations of Cultural Resources Located in the Burnt Mountain and Agua Fria Tunnels Right-of-Way, Central Arizona Project
Author(s): Patricia Eyring Brown
Under contract with the Bureau of Reclamation, the Office of Cultural Resource Management (OCRM), Department of Anthropology, Arizona State University, completed an archaeological survey of the Burnt Mountain and Agua Fria Tunnels of the Granite Reef Aqueduct. The Burnt Mountain Tunnel is located on 150 acres on the southeast slope of Burnt Mountain. The Agua Fria Tunnel is located on a 180 acres in the Hieroglyphic Mountains.
OCRM archaeologists identified and documented 2 sites during the Burnt Mountain and Agua Fria Tunnels survey: AZ S:8:6 (ASU) in the Burnt Mountain project area and AZ T:3:19 (ASU) in the Agua Fria project area.
Mitigation was completed at the two sites in the spring of 1978. A 100 percent surface collection and testing of one rock feature was completed at AZ S:8:6 (ASU). Surface collection of a stratified random sample and recordation of on petroglyph was completed at AZ T:3:19 (ASU).
The investigations identified a pattern of secondary resource zone exploitation in the desert areas between the river valleys. Researchers defined and described a secondary resource zone as an area which did not support a permanent population, but was utilized intermittently, probably on a seasonal basis, in the exploitation of wild plant and animal food resources by people whose primary subsistence was derived from a different zone.
