Archaeological Testing Results and Proposed Data Recovery Plan for AZ AA:12:271 (ASM), a Small Site on the Bajada of the Tortolita Mountains, Pima County, Arizona (TR2004-7) (PDF)
At the request of Cottonwood Properties, Desert Archaeology, Inc., completed archaeological testing of a small site, AZ AA:12:271 (ASM), northwest of El Camino de Mañana, between Thornydale and Tangerine roads in the northern Tucson Basin. This project was conducted because surface artifacts were identified during a recent survey of the site area (Stephen 2003) even though the site was reportedly totally collected when it was initially recorded 22 years ago (Arizona State Museum [ASM] site files). The current project was designed to determine if subsurface archaeological remains were present prior to construction of the Tortolita Vistas development project. This report includes sections about the project area location and description, project methods, results, recommendations, and a data recovery plan.
