The Fort Mountain Archaeological Project, Volume 1: Archaeological Investigations at Five Prehistoric Sites Near the Base of Fort Mountain in Phoenix, Maricopa County, Arizona (2012)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Ross S. Curtis. Thomas E. Wright.

Five prehistoric Hohokam sites were investigated near the base of Fort Mountain in northern Phoenix. Three of these sites were small habitation areas linked by a canal, one was a cluster of rockpiles used for agricultural purposes, and one was a a dry-farming system of rock alignments, check dams, and terraces. Collectively, the sites suggest short-term, probably seasonal occupation associated with agricultural activities during the Sedentary/Classic transition and early Classic period in the...

DOCUMENT Full-Text Scott Kwiatkowski.

The Fort Mountain Site, AZ T:8:5 (ASM) / AZ T:8:34 (ASU), is a masonry-walled Hohokam compound atop Fort Mountain, a volcanic butte adjacent to Cave Creek in northern Phoenix, Arizona. The site also includes a number of petroglyphs. Excavation results indicate that the compound included three masonry rooms, one possible ramada, two courtyards, two corridors, two extramural areas, and two surface artifact concentrations along with the enclosing masonry wall. Petroglyphs included spirals,...

DOCUMENT Full-Text David Abbott.

Hohokam ceramics recovered during the Fort Mountain Archaeological Project in northern Phoenix, Arizona, are described and analyzed. Ceramics from five investigated sites suggest occupation during the Classic period. Phyllite-tempered plainwares dominate the assemblage. Petrographic and geochemical studies suggest at least three distinct production locales: one at or near Fort Mountain, one in the middle Cave Creek area north of Fort Mountain, and one "unknown" locale probably located in the...

The environmental summary presented in Volume 2 forms a backdrop for examining the settlement and subsistence history and dynamics of the lower Verde region (see Volume 4). Because of its geographically and culturally transitional position between major culture areas, the Verde River valley has remained an archaeological and historical enigma. The same can be said with regard to environmental information, for the valley has been less intensively studied than other areas of central Arizona, and...
