James Schoenwetter Pollen Research Papers
PROJECT Uploaded by: Mary Whelan

James Schoenwetter (Ph.D. Southern Illinois 1967) was a Professor Emeritus at Arizona State University. His research interests included prehistoric cultural ecology, applications of pollen analysis in archaeology and research methodology. Before his retirement in 2000 he directed the ASU Anthropology Department’s palynology lab. Pollen research by Schoenwetter and his students involved a variety of sites in Mesoamerica, North America and Europe. He directed archaeological and botanical...


Los Guanacos: One Hundred Years Later, Recent Documentary and Archaeological Research Concerning a Prehistoric Hohokam Site First Investigated by the Hemenway Expedition of 1887 - 1888 (1988)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Judy Brunson. Scott L. Fedick.

Much current archaeological research into prehistoric Hohokam society deals with relationships among the variables of site size, types of architecture, chronological placement, and the development of the canal system through time. Unfortunately, an alarming number of Hohokam sites have been destroyed or severely altered during the last hundred years of agricultural and urban development in the Salt River Valley. Because of these losses, early historic descriptions of Hohokam sites are of vital...


The Los Hornos Pollen Study (1980)
DOCUMENT Full-Text James Schoenwetter.

Major study intended as the draft of a chapter in a report on the archaeological mitigation program for a populous Hohokam village in the Salt River Valley, Arizona. Though the study generated an unusually large body of well controlled archaeological-context palynological data, it did not result in the discovery of new information about Hohokam prehistory. Assessments of this failure, however, led to significant methodological lessons for archaeological pollen studies.

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...
