Archaeological Investigations of the Tucson Pressed Brick Company, Tucson, Arizona

Author(s): Michael W. Diehl; Allison Cohen Diehl

Year: 1996


In February 1995, Parsons Brinckerhoff contracted with Desert Archaeology, Inc., to conduct archaeological investigations along the route of the A-Mountain storm drain. The A-Mountain testing phase was conducted concurrently with the first phase of testing on Rio Nuevo South and revealed a similar pattern of Early Agricultural features, prehistoric and historic canals, remnants of the brickyard, and a portion of an area occupied by Chinese gardeners. Significant features were found both in the area that crossed the Rio Nuevo South lot and along Archaeological data recovery was conducted within three components of the site, and each is discussed in a separate volume introduced by this preface. This volume describes the history and archaeological remains of the Tucson Pressed Brickyard Company. The Early Agricultural settlement found in several areas is the subject of a second volume (M. Diehl 1996b). Lastly, the Chinese gardener's household found beneath is studied in the third volume (Thiel 1996).
