Summary

The following report contains the results of archaeological monitoring of two areas within the boundaries of AZ BB:9:14 (ASM) in the eastern Tucson Basin, near the confluence of the Rillito River and Pantano Wash. This project was conducted because the construction lies within the boundaries of a previously recorded archaeological site. The work complies with the City of Tucson Resolution Number 12443 (1983), an Administrative Directive titled Protection of Archaeological and Historical Resources in City Projects, issued by the City Manager in 1999, and the Arizona Antiquities Act (ARS §41-841 et seq.). The results of archaeological monitoring, including excavation of sample units into the features that were encountered, are provided in this report.

A pithouse and small pit were discovered during monitoring. Within those units, two additional features were

discovered: a historic possible sidewalk and a prehistoric roasting pit. The pithouse dates to the Middle

Rincon phase of the Hohokam Sequence.
