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.

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...
