Archaeological Investigations at the Barrio 5C Site (AZ BB:9:166 [ASM]), A Hohokam Field House Site in Oro Valley, Arizona

Author(s): Kevin D. Wellman

Year: 1995


The Barrio 5C Site (AZ BB:9:166 [ASM]) is a small Rincon-phase Hohokam site in Oro Valley, Arizona. Between April 11 and April 20, 1995, SWCA, Inc. Environmental Consultants conducted excavations at the site as a combined testing and data recovery effort. Four cultural features were identified during the project: two pit structures and two areas of sheet trash. This report describes the investigations at the site, including the results of analysis of all artifacts recovered from the site, the results of analysis of botanical samples, and the results of archaeomagnetic dating.

The site was first recorded during a cultural resource survey of the Rancho Vistoso property by the Institute for American Research (IAR). During their survey, IAR collected all surface artifacts except sherds smaller than a quarter dollar in size. Before testing of the site, it was considered potentially eligible for inclusion on the National Register of Historic Places under Criterion (d) (Motsinger and Wellman 1995), and it could not be avoided during the proposed residential development of the parcel.
