Hohokam Farming on the Salt River Floodplain: Excavations at the Sky Harbor Airport North Runway (AP42)
T. Kathleen Henderson, editor.
The fieldwork for this project was accomplished between mid-November 1999 and mid-August 2000 in segments identified as Phases II, III, and IV of the North Runway Expansion project. Archaeological monitoring for the related 24th Street Realignment project was also undertaken. The archaeological work, which included testing and data recovery stages, was conducted in accordance with a treatment plan prepared by Desert Archaeology, Inc. Standard archaeological methods were used during the exploration of the project parcels. One hundred twenty-three features associated with the Dutch Canal Ruin were documented by the project, including: pithouses, activity surfaces, a ramada, an horno, ash pits, extramural hearths, small pits, and cremations. In addition, four canals related to the prehistoric Canal Patricio system were investigated along with a small historic-period ditch. 309 pages. Published September 2003.
