Archaeological Investigations at the Yuma Wash Site and Outlying Settlements, parts 1 & 2 (AP-49) (PDF)


SKU: AP49D Categories: ,


The project described in this report is located in the northwestern Tucson Basin in the Town of Marana. The project was conducted for the Town of Marana prior to and during improvements to Silverbell Road between Ina Road and Cortaro Road and construction of the adjacent Crossroads at Silverbell Park. Data recovery efforts focused on four sites, three of which were considered loci of the Yuma Wash site, a large Hohokam Classic period (A.D. 1150-1450) village. Only a small portion of the fourth site was within the right-of- way. Additionally, a canal site, also likely dating to the Classic period, was discovered. Excavations at the Yuma Wash site provided new information about site structure, burial practices, and the relationship of this site to other Classic period communities.
