Archaeological Testing and Data Recovery at AZ BB:13:784 (ASM), Historic Block 208, Tucson, Pima County, Arizona
Author(s): Patricia Cook
The City of Tucson has proposed to develop part of a commercial block, Historic Block 208, also known as the Thrifty Block, in downtown Tucson, Pima County, Arizona. Three parcels within the block had been razed prior to the current project. Archival research indicated that Historic Block 208 had a long history of both residential and commercial use, and that intact subsurface archaeological deposits could be expected within the project area. A testing and data recovery plan was proposed (Diehl 2006).
Testing and data recovery were conducted by Desert Archaeology, Inc., in July 2006, and required 4 person-days to complete. A total of 41 m of backhoe trench was excavated during testing, and four features were identified. One feature was completely excavated during data recovery. The details and findings of the testing and data recovery plan at Historic Block 208 are presented in this report, and recommendations are provided.
