A 10th Century Hohokam Camp Along New River. Archaeological Investigations at AZ T:8:86 (ASM), Peoria, Arizona

Editor(s): Douglas R. Mitchell; Michael Stubing

Year: 1999


This report presents the results of archaeological investigations at AZ T:8:86 (ASM), a small Hohokam site located in the path of a proposed extension of 83rd Avenue in the City of Peoria. The project area is located in on Arizona State Trust Land, administered by the Arizona State Land Department (ASLD). The City of Peoria, on behalf of the Pivotal Group, applied to the ASLD for a 20 m (65 feet) wide right-of-way for the proposed extension (Application No. 16 104229). The archaeological work was conducted under an Arizona State Museum (ASM) project specific permit (permit number 1998-146ps/ext.).

During an archaeological survey of the proposed extension, 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). Archaeological testing was conducted in March 1999 to evaluate the eligibility of the site. Testing included mapping, surface collection, 21 backhoe trenches (totaling 210 linear meters), and 4 hand test excavation units (Stubing 1999). Four subsurface features were identified during testing within the project right-of-way, including a possible pithouse, two pits, and a charcoal stain. Further archaeological work was recommended for AZ T:8:86 (ASM) (Stubing 1999:12) and data recovery was conducted in May 1999.
