Archaeological Excavations at Nine Sites Near the Mouth of Pima Canyon, Tucson, Arizona

Author(s): David P. Doak

Year: 1996


In the fall of 1995, archaeological test excavations were conducted on nine archaeological sites near the mouth of Pima Canyon, north of Tucson, Arizona. The operation involved the excavation of approximately 200 1 x 1 m test units. This was intended not only to test the sites in question, but also to mitigate impending damages to as many of those sites as possible, so that further archaeological work would not have to be done. In the case of seven of these sites, the level of mitigation achieved through the testing operation was determined to be sufficient. However, at the two largest, most complex sites, it was determined that additional work would have to be done before mitigation could be deemed complete. As a result, a plan of work for additional data recovery at these two sites was prepared and submitted along with the preliminary report on the testing operation. This plan was approved, and the additional work was carried out in the summer of 1996. This report serves as a final synthesis of all archaeological work done at the 9 sites during the two operations conducted there.
