Archaeological Investigations in Support of the South Phoenix Loop Street and Landscaping Projects: Data Recovery at AZ T:12:231 (ASM), Phoenix, Maricopa County, Arizona

Author(s): Daniel H. Sorrell

Year: 2009


This report presents the results of an archaeological testing and data recovery program conducted by EcoPlan for COP on approximately three acres of land in south Phoenix, Maricopa County, Arizona. These archaeological investigations were conducted in advance of the COP Neighborhood Services Department’s South Phoenix Village Loop Street and Landscaping project (COP Cost Center Numbers ND30010010 and ND30010011). Because project activities associated with these projects were deemed likely to impact suspected cultural resources within the project area, COP requested that EcoPlan prepare and implement a cultural resources testing and discovery program for the treatment of suspected cultural resources in the project area.

In total, fifteen prehistoric features and one historic feature were discovered and investigated. Archaeological features included four Hohokam field houses, three canals, six small pits, a possible reservoir, and an alignment of postholes believed to be the remains of a ramada-like structure. The historic feature consisted of the buried remains of a privy. The archaeological expressions in the study area were assigned site number AZ T:12:231 (ASM) by ASM.
