Upper Little Colorado Prehistory Project (ULCPP)


The Upper Little Colorado Prehistory Project (ULCPP) is an Arizona State University Project that was in the field between 1992 and 1994. It included both ASU Summer Archaeological Field Schools and summer archaeology programs for K-12 teachers sponsored by a Heritage Fund Grant administered by Arizona State Parks. The project was based at Lyman Lake State Park. Excavation was accomplished at Rattlesnake Point Pueblo and Baca Pueblo both in Lyman Lake State Park. Some of the excavations at Rattlesnake Point were stabilized and interpreted for Park visitors. Interpretation was also provided for two petroglyph trails within the Park. As a part of the project, the Park was surveyed, locating 47 sites. Systematic survey was also done on the Udall Ranch locating another 33 sites.
