Summary

This document presents the results of fieldwork and a plan for additional work at sites within a proposed realignment in the City of Peoria, Arizona. During an archaeological survey of the proposed realignment, AZ T:8:86 (ASM) was identified as a Hohokam artifact scatter, and was found to be potentially eligible for inclusion to the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) under Criterion D (Ryden et al. 1998). Avoidance of the site was recommended; archaeological testing was recommended if avoidance was not possible (Ryden et al, 1998:10). The ASLD recommended the site was eligible for inclusion to the NRHP under Criterion D, and stated the current realignment was preferred (K. Rozen, ASLD, to J. Miller, Arizona State Historic Preservation Office, letter, 5 November 1998).

The testing strategy used at AZ T:8:86 (ASM) followed a plan of work outlined by ASLD (K. Rozen, ASLD, to J. Miller, Arizona State Historic Preservation Office, letter, 5 November 1998). A research design, modeled after several large-scale archaeological projects previously conducted in the vicinity (Ciolek-Torrello 1981; Dittert 1976; Doyel and Elson 1985) was developed by SWCA, Inc. for the testing project. The research design pursued two research problems proposed by Doyel and Elson (1985:19), specifically the settlement and subsistence systems prevalent in the New River region, and the relationship of the New River Hohokam to the Salt and Gila River Core Area.

Another site lies within the realignment corridor. Site AZ T:8:17 (ASM) was subjected to data recovery in 1983 (Doyel and Elson 1985). The site included houses, pits, and a cremation (Doyel and Elson 1985:59). Due to the presence of human remains, the ASLD recommended that the portion of the site within the road corridor be monitored. A monitoring plan for this site is included in this document.
