Limited Excavation at the Eastern Margin of the Hodges Site
Author(s): Deborah L. Swartz
The excavations conducted on the fire station parcel for the Flowing Wells Fire District were situated on the eastern margin of the Hodges site, AZ AA:12:18 (ASM). During the testing phase, 24 features were identified in backhoe trenches, and the eastern boundary of the Hodges site, AZ AA:12:18 (ASM), was defined. The limited excavation phase focused solely on features that would be impacted by construction. Two pit-houses and two trash concentrations were excavated or sampled. Although the artifacts collected during the testing phase indicated a Middle Rincon phase occupation (AD. 100-1100), three of the excavated features dated to the Tortolita phase (AD. 550-650). These features represent the earliest known occupation at the site.
