Archaeological Data Recovery at AZ U:14:292 (ASM) and AZ U:14:437 (ASM) at the Coolidge Substation, Pinal County, Arizona
Author(s): Michael W. Lindeman
This report documents archaeological data recovery by Desert Archaeology, Inc., at three archaeological sites, AZ U:14:292 (ASM), AZ U:14:437 (ASM), and AZ U:14:438 (ASM), found inside Western Area Power Administration's (Western) Coolidge Substation, Pinal County, Arizona. Archaeological fieldwork was conducted in two phases. The first phase focused on a larger area within the substation and was reported on by Darby et al. (2012). The current report focuses on the second phase of fieldwork, which examined a limited area that is to be directly affected by Western's current improvement plans. The second round of fieldwork was completed in accordance with an approved data recovery plan that prescribed archaeological investigations in advance of adding equipment to the substation (Lindeman 2012). This plan also specified that three prehistoric canals from U:14:437, identified by Darby et al. (2012) during the initial phase of work, would be examined in greater detail in concert with analysis for the second phase of fieldwork.
Data recovery fieldwork took place in the portion of U:14:292 that will be encompassed by the new interior substation fence. The boundary of U:14:292 had been extended into this area based on the results of the first phase of archaeological fieldwork (Darby et al. 2012). The second phase of fieldwork did not reveal any archaeological features in the area, and Desert Archaeology recommends the boundary of U:14:292 be shifted northward, outside the second phase study area. Figures in this document use the new site boundary. No additional fieldwork was conducted at U:14:437, and the analysis presented in Chapter 3 uses information collected by Darby et al. (2012).
