DescriptionArchaeological Assessment of the Sells Vicinity, Papago Indian Reservation, Arizona. Prepared for STRAAM Engineers, Inc. by Caro A. Coe. Submitted by Cultural Resource Management Section, Arizona State Museum, University of Arizona. June 1979. Archaeological Series No. 131.
AbstractIn July 1978 STRAAM Engineers, Inc., contracted with the Cultural Resource Management Section of the Arizona State Museum to prepare an assessment of archaeological resources in the vicinity of Sells, some 60 miles southwest of Tucson on the Papago Indian Reservation. An extensive review of literature on the Papagueria resulted in a discussion of environmental factors, culture history and previous research. A records check for the 12.75 square mile area around Sells defined as the project area resulted in an inventory of 18 sites previously recorded by the Western Archeological Center, National Park Service, Tucson, and by the Arizona State Museum. This inventory, in conjunction with site specific data for the project area, was used to identify archaeologically sensitive areas within the project boundaries. Recommendations for survey and monitoring were made for the areas to be affected by planned sewer facilities improvements. At the conclusion of this report a long term inventory survey is recommended for planning purposes.
