An Archaeological Data Recovery Plan for La Lomita, AZ U:9:67 (ASM), and Eight Prehistoric Canals, City of Phoenix, Maricopa County, Arizona (2001)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Gregory B. Brown, M.A., R.P.A..

The project proposes to construct a buried sewer line under east Van Buren Street between 30th Street and 37th Street. From the intersection of east Van Buren and 37th Street, the sewer line will be constructed north and will pass under the Grand Canal and State Route 202L (Papago Freeway). North of the Papago Freeway, the sewer will be constructed parallel to the Freeway right-of-way to the east and will extend midway between the 37th Street and 38th Street alignments. From this...


Archaeology in the Distribution Division of the Central Arizona Project: Thoughts on the History of the Hohokam Culture of Southern Arizona and on the Practice of Archaeology in the 1990s (1995)
DOCUMENT Full-Text William S. Marmaduke. Kathleen T. Henderson.

Underwritten by the Bureau of Reclamation, Northland Research archaeologists surveyed more than 7,450 hectares (18,410 acres) of southern Arizona. Two hundred four archaeological sites were recorded. Some sites, but not many, were historic in age; a few were Archaic, from the era before ceramics and sedentary agriculture in the Southwestern lowlands. The majority were from the intervening Hohokam cultural sequence. We learned from these sites that the prehistory of southern Arizona is, at one...


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...

A Gazetteer of Excavated Hohokam Sites on Canal System Two, Phoenix Basin, Arizona (2002)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Glen E. Rice.

From 1982 to 1990, a dozen archaeological sites associated with the Hohokam Canal System Two in the Phoenix Basin were excavated in anticipation of the construction of a network of freeways in the City of Phoenix (Figure 1). Ten of the excavation projects were funded through the Arizona Department of Transportation and two through the City of Phoenix Engineering Project; the work was conducted by the Arizona State Museum, the Museum of Northern Arizona, Arizona State University, and Soil...

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...

DOCUMENT Full-Text Uploaded by: Joshua Watts

Studies of Hohokam irrigation systems undertaken in the past 5 to 10 years, particularly in the Phoenix Basin, have provided a wealth of new data to be studied and assimilated by archaeologists. Recently completed and ongoing projects have required archaeologists to ask new questions and to apply a variety of investigative techniques to better understand the complexities of Hohokam irrigation systems. It is important that archaeologists studying Hohokam irrigation systems evaluate the increasing...


Vanishing River Volume 4: Chapter 15: Re-Thinking the Core-Periphery Model of the Pre-Classic Period Hohokam (1997)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Stephanie M. Whittlesey.

In Chapter 15, Whittlesey reviews the Hohokam core-periphery model in light of the new data generated by the LVAP. She begins with a description of the intellectual history and the key concepts of the Hohokam core-periphery model and the Hohokam regional system model. She then examines the utility of the core-periphery model for explaining current data on Hohokam prehistory. After reviewing the distribution of several quintessential Hohokam traits among sites in the “core” and in the...
