Pueblo Grande (AZ U:9:1(ASM)): Unit 12, Gateway and 44th Streets: Kitchell Development Testing Project
Pueblo Grande Unit 12 (Gateway Lot 4 at the southeastern corner of Gateway Blvd and 44th Streets) is a 3.8 ac parcel that was scheduled for commercial development in 1997. The parcel is located less than 300 ft (91 m) northeast of Unit 7 of the prehistoric site of Pueblo Grande (AZ U:9:1(ASM)), where archaeological features including burials had been encountered (Breternitz et al. 1990). Because of its proximity, there was a likelihood that archaeological remains including burials would also be present on the subject parcel. Therefore, a program of archaeological test excavations was conducted on 17 and 18 April, 1997 by personnel from Soil Systems, Inc., to facilitate compliance with A.R.S. 41-865. Seventy-eight backhoe trenches were excavated and their sidewalls and backdirt were examined. No prehistoric or historic cultural remains or deposits were encountered in any of the excavations. The trenches were recorded and backfilled. No further archaeological treatment is recommended.
