Results of Phase I Data Recovery at Pozos de Sonoqui, AZ 11:14:49 (ASM), Along the Planned Riggs Road Alignment, Queen Creek, Maricopa County, Arizona
Between August 13 and 24, 2007, Phase I data recovery excavations were conducted within a 1,550-m-long by 43-m-wide segment of the planned Riggs Road corridor that extends through the northern portion of AZ U:14:49 (ASM)—also known as Pozos de Sonoqui—a National Register of Historic Places (NRHP)- eligible prehistoric site in southeastern Maricopa County. The project uses Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) funding to be administered by the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) Local Government Section. The excavations were guided by an approved treatment plan (Neily and Cogswell 2007).
The Phase I data recovery fieldwork involved limited surface collecting, systematic and judgmental backhoe trenching, and mapping and feature documentation; two secondary cremations were also recovered. In total, 1,371 m of trench was excavated and 41 prehistoric features, including a likely ballcourt, were recorded. A preliminary assessment of the recovered temporally diagnostic ceramics indicates occupational components extending from the Hohokam early Colonial- through early Sedentary periods, with some possible use during the Pioneer and Classic periods. The following sections outline, the tasks that were completed, describe the results of the Phase I data recovery, and provide recommendations for Phase II data recovery.
