Archaeological Investigations at Lee Canyon: Kayenta Anasazi Farmsteads in the Upper Basin Coconino County, Arizona
Author(s): Stephanie M. Whittlesey
The following report presents the results of archaeological data recovery carried out at two Kayenta Anasazi sites, AZ 1:1:15 (ASM) and AZ 1:1:24 (ASM), located at Lee Canyon in the Upper Basin, Coconino County, Arizona. The work was conducted in response to a realignment of State Route 64 by the Arizona Department of Transportation. During archaeological testing by Statistical Research, Inc., masonry structures and agricultural features at the two sites were located, suggesting the potential to study prehistoric subsistence and settlement patterns on this portion of the Colorado Plateau.
The Lee Canyon sites and the archaeology of the Upper Basin as a whole corresponds with a general model in which a nonhierarchical, dispersed settlement system served as the basis for exploiting a local resource territory.
