Boundary Definition Testing at Hodges Ruin, AZ AA:12:18 (ASM), Pima County, Arizona

Author(s): Michael W. Lindeman

Year: 2009


The results of boundary definition testing at the southeastern margin of AZ AA:12:18 (ASM), the Hodges Ruin, are presented in this report. Hodges Ruin has been determined to be eligible for inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places. The parcels are owned by the Flowing Wells School District and the district intends to construct an Early Childhood Center on the parcels. The goal of the fieldwork was to determine the extent of archaeological features on the parcels with the hope that construction could be structured around significant cultural resources, leaving areas where prehistoric features are present untouched.

In all, 48 subsurface features, pithouses, mortuary features, and extramural pits were identified, in addition to one scatter of human bone on the surface. While no definitive phase assignments could be generated based on the ceramics collected from the features, the range of potential dates spans from Early Rincon (circa 950-1000) to Late Rincon (circa 1100-1150), centered on the Middle Rincon phase (circa 1000-1100). The features were concentrated in the western half of the parcel. Features continued to the southern edge of the project area, suggesting that the southeastern corner lay beyond the examined parcels.
