This is an abstract from the "Community Matters: Enhancing Student Learning Opportunities through the Development of Community Partnerships" session, at the 84th annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology.

In March 2016 a study investigating human footprints discovered at the Rillito Fan Site, AZ AA 12:788(ASM), located in Pima County, Arizona, was conducted by Pima Community College archaeology staff and students, in partnership with other Pima County-based archaeological organizations. This poster looks at the results of the footprint analysis of multiple sets of tracks that were examined, including one set of tracks that had such a remarkable level of preservation the weave of the sandal could be seen. The study allowed a greater understanding of movement through the site, numbers of individuals, and body and head positions. The County was able to use this information to support further investigation of the extent of the site to the southeast.
