Pima Community College Excavation at the Dairy Site, AZ AA:12:285 (ASM)


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.

The Dairy Site, AZ AA:12:285 (ASM), was first recorded in 1982 in Tucson, Arizona and in the three decades since, many investigations have been conducted. The boundaries of the site have been ever-growing, now extend well beyond the 1982 limits, and thus far are not well defined. From January 30, 2018- April 4, 2018 Tierra Right of Way Services conducted archaeological excavations at the site. The purpose of the excavation was to collect and record any cultural resources before a proposed development project utilized the land. As part of the project, students and staff from Pima Community College's Centre for Archaeological Field Training (PCCAC) worked one day a week to excavate several features. Although still waiting for results of ceramic analysis and radio-carbon dating, preliminary results suggest the site was inhabited as early as the Agua Caliente phase of the early ceramic period (C.E. 50-450) through the beginning of the Hohokam era. This poster will focus on the data recovery efforts participated in and the features excavated by personnel from PCCAC.
