ARCHAEOLOGICAL SURVEYS OF STANFIELD ROAD IN PINAL COUNTY AND COWLIC ROAD IN PIMA COUNTY, PAPAGO INDIAN RESERVATION, ARIZONA

The Cultural Resource Management Section of the Arizona State Museum, under the sponsorship of the Western Archeological Center of the National Park Service, conducted a literature search and an archeological survey that focused on two areas of the Papago Indian Reservation where road improvement and associated gravel borrow areas have been proposed. A right-of-way extending 4 miles along State Route 42 in Pinal County, Arizona, was surveyed as well as a right-of-way extending 8 miles along the existing Cowlic Road and its proposed realignment area in Pima County, Arizona. In addition, seven proposed borrow areas, associated with the Cowlic Road, were surveyed. As a result of the survey, four archeological sites were located in the Cowlic Road survey area. In addition, 20 subsite artifact areas containing prehistoric to modern artifacts were recorded. No cultural remains were recorded along the Stanfield Road portion of the survey. The archeological remains are described and their significance assessed, and management recommendations are offered.
