The Point of the Project: Analysis of Projectile Point Data in the Burro Creek/Pine Creek Wilderness
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.
During a 15-year-long survey conducted by Pima Community College of the Burro Creek/Pine Creek area, between Bagdad, Arizona and Prescott, Arizona, many different types of diagnostic projectile points were recorded and/or recovered. Based on an analysis of these projectile points, the area was occupied from the Paleoindian Era to the more recent and less known era of the Prescott Culture, which dates as late as AD 1300. This poster presents an in-depth analysis of the projectile point distribution across the landscape including typology, as well as a GIS-based examination of overall trends across more than 100 sites on BLM and private lands. The results seek to clarify chronology of occupation in the area and to refine our understanding of artifact typology within the Prescott Culture.
