Ceramic Markers of Ancient Irrigation Communities (2002)
DOCUMENT Full-Text David R. Abbott.

More than 1000 years ago, a people that archaeologists call the Hohokam first inhabited the deserts of what is now Arizona. They flourished for more than 70 generations in the lower Salt River Valley, the place where Phoenix now stands. Buried beneath the modern metropolis are the ruins of many aboriginal villages and a vast and elaborate irrigation network that may have watered 40,000 acres of cropland. (Jerry Howard completed this map, Figure 1, of the Hohokam irrigation canals and major...

Hohokam Impacts on the Vegetation of Canal System Two, Phoenix Basin (2002)
DOCUMENT Full-Text David Jacobs. Glen E. Rice.

In 1850, the Phoenix Basin had been uninhabited for about 350 to 400 years. It was visited occasionally by hunting, fishing, or gathering parties from the Pima, Pee Posh, Yavapai or Apache, but the last people to have cleared farming fields, excavated canals, and built villages in the lower Salt River valley had been the Hohokam, and they had abandoned the area sometime between A.D. 1450 and 1500. This timeline is important to archaeologists because it means that the desert vegetation in the...


Interactions with the Incorporeal in the Mississippian and Ancestral Puebloan Worlds
PROJECT Uploaded by: M Scott Thompson

This research explores how people’s relationships with the spirits of the dead are embedded in political histories. It addresses the ways in which certain spirits were integral “inhabitants” of two social environments with disparate political traditions. Using the prehistoric mortuary record, this study investigate the spirits and their involvement in socio-political affairs in the Prehispanic American Southeast and Southwest. Foremost, this research constructs a framework to characterize...
