Archaeological Test Excavations at Pueblo Salado, Area 6, and a Data Recovery Proposal, Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, Phoenix, Arizona

Author(s): David H. Greenwald

Year: 1994


This report contains the results of archaeological testing (Part I) and a plan for data recovery (Part II) at Area 6 of the dispersed Classic and post-Classic period site of Pueblo Salado. During the course of conducting archaeological testing in Area 6, the City of Phoenix Aviation Department in consultation with the City of Phoenix Archaeologist determined that the archaeological remains contained important information potential and would require further investigation through a data recovery program. To meet the proposed schedule for development in the vicinity of Area 6, SWCA, Inc., Environmental Consultants, were directed to prepare this document. Part I consists of a brief report that focuses on the results of the testing efforts. The testing report is primarily descriptive, focusing on feature descriptions, brief discussions of the material culture assemblages, and conclusions and recommendations.

All data and materials recovered during the testing phase will be included in detailed analyses which will be conducted during the data recovery phase. Part II of this document is the work plan for archaeological data recovery. The work plan will implement the original research design developed for the City of Phoenix Sky Harbor Center archaeological project (Greenwald, Gregory, and Chenault 1994), an undertaking that has investigated three other areas of Pueblo Salado (Greenwald, Chenault, and Greenwald 1993; Greenwald and Ballagh 1993). The research design is not included in this document as it has been previously published as part of the Phoenix Sky Harbor Center investigations and is easily accessible. The plan of work, however, is presented as some approaches and methods have been updated from the original Sky Harbor Center plan of work (Greenwald and Chenault 1994).
