Archaeological Testing of a Portion of Pueblo Del Alamo, Site AZ T:12:18 (ASU) (1990)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Mark L. Chenault. David H. Greenwald.

An archaeological testing program was undertaken at a portion of Pueblo del Alamo (AZ T: 12:18 ASU). The project area encompasses 10 acres and contains a part of the site. It is located at the southwest corner of 59th Avenue and Lower Buckeye Road. Forty-one trenches were placed, systematically and judgmentally, within the 10 acre parcel. Thirty-five cultural features were found. Eight of the features are of historic date and 27 appear to be prehistoric. The Prehistoric occupation spans the...


Archaeology in America: Hohokam Platform Mounds (2009)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Glen E. Rice. Arleyn W. Simon. Owen Lindauer.

The prehistoric Hohokam people of central Arizona constructed platform mounds at more than 100 sites between AD 1250 and 1450. These were stage-like platforms 2–2.5 meters high on which the Hohokam built rooms to place them in higher and more prominent locations in comparison to other rooms in the surrounding community. Sometimes additional rooms were constructed around the base of the platform mound, and a wall was built at ground level to surround the platform mound and rooms inside a...

Late Holocene Flooding Within the Salt River Basin, Central Arizona (1986)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Jim E. O'Connor. Jonathan E. Fuller. Victor R. Baker.

This report to the Salt River Project documents findings of the 1985-1986 study of paleofloods in the Salt River Basin of central Arizona. Included are descriptions and analyses for flood deposits preserved at sites on the Verde and Salt Rivers and Tonto Creek. Stratigraphic interpretation, hydraulic modeling, and radiometric dating allowed us to make inferences about paleoflood timing, frequency, and magnitudes during the latest Holocene at the three study sites. These results can be compared...


Platform Mounds of the Arizona Desert: An Experiment in Organizational Complexity (1993)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Glen E. Rice. Charles Redman.

Platform mounds were built by the prehistoric Salado and Hohokam people of southern Arizona from the 13th through the 15th century A.O., the Classic period. They are basically artificial, flat-topped hills on which the ruling families of the day built their homes. Additional residences and storage rooms were built around the base of a mound, and the whole was enclosed within a compound wall. Each mound was the administrative, ceremonial, and economic center for a small-scale political system,...
