This project involved testing and data recovery at 19 archaeological sites within the Upper Tonto Basin of central Arizona, approximately 10 miles south of the town of Payson. The project was undertaken for the Arizona Department of Transportation prior to the realignment and expansion of State Route 87. The data suggest that while there may have been limited migration into the Basin from points north and south, the Upper Basin was occupied primarily by an indigenous population who participated in various interaction networks, the nature of which changed through time.
The State And Local Arizona Documents (SALAD) collection contains documents published by the State of Arizona, its Counties, incorporated Cities or Towns, or affiliated Councils of Government; documents produced under the auspices of a state or local agency, board, commission or department, including reports made to these units; and Salt River Project, a licensed municipality. ASU is a primary collector of state publications and makes a concerted effort to acquire and catalog most materials published by state and local governmental agencies.
The ASU Digital Repository provides access to digital SALAD publications, however the ASU Libraries’ non-digitized Arizona documents can be searched through the ASU Libraries Catalog and Library One Search. For additional assistance, Ask A Government Documents Librarian.
Publications issued by the Morrison Institute for Public Programs at Arizona State University are available in the ASU Digital Repository Morrison Institute for Public Policy - Publications Archive collection.
