DOCUMENT Full-Text T. Kathleen Henderson.

The Southwest Germann site is among the largest of prehistoric Hohokam settlements in the Queen Creek area. The Rohrig Substation property is located at its southwestern edge and overlaps a previously unreported habitation locus. Archaeological testing (Phase 1 data recovery) at the substation documented the presence of adobe-walled rooms, puddling pits, and trash deposits that were probably contained within an adobe-walled compound on the easternmost side of the Rohrig property.

A brief description of the investigations, the project area, and the archaeological situation encountered is given.


Archaeological Investigations: Salt River Project Silverking Substation and Microwave Repeater Station Survey, Tonto National Forest, Pinal County, Arizona: Final Report for an Archaeological Survey of the Silverking Substation and an Associated Microwave Repeater Station, Tonto National Forest, Pinal County, Arizona (1978)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Donald E. Weaver, Jr..

On March 17, 1978, the Museum of Northern Arizona conducted an archaeological survey of two land parcels in Tonto National Forest proposed by The Salt River Project for construction of the Silverking Substation and an associated microwave repeater station. Only one previously recorded site, NA14,132, was observed. Since the site probably post-dates 1948 and contains virtually no significant archaeological data, archaeological clearance for the two land parcels is recommended.

Archaeology and Dissonant Memories of Japanese American Incarceration (2018)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Koji H. Ozawa.

Memories of the Japanese American Incarceration Camps during WWII vary widely across America. For some, memories of the incarceration are a focal point of their identity and a driver of political action. Others who underwent this imprisonment chose not to recall their experiences. The incarceration can haunt their descendants as an ever-present but silenced past. Broadly, the United States’ relationship to this past is fractured. Activists invoke the incarceration as an affront to American...

Assessing Healthcare amid World War II Incarceration (2019)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Stacey L Camp.

This is an abstract from the "Health and Inequality in the Archaeological Record" session, at the 2019 annual meeting of the Society for Historical Archaeology. Archaeologists frequently recover artifacts that speak to the health and welfare of individuals or a community they are studying. Archaeologists can use these medicinal- and healthcare-related artifacts to assess an individual or community’s quality of life. This is particularly important to investigate in the context of...

Confronting Conflict through Virtual Worlds (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Stacey Camp.

Three dimensional virtual worlds present new possibilities and new challenges for teaching about difficult pasts or "dark heritages." This paper considers how virtual environments can be used to explore conflict through user interaction with primary and secondary data sets. It will present a virtual world prototype of Idaho’s Kooskia Internment Camp, a World War II Japanese American internment camp that imprisoned over two hundred Japanese American men. Drawing upon pedagogical strategies...


Historic Cultural Resources in Relation to the Central Arizona Water Control Study (1983)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Lyle M. Stone. James E. Ayres.

Flooding along the Salt, Gila, Verde, and Agua Fria Rivers in February and March of 1978 resulted in extensive damage to property in Central Arizona and in the disruption of ground transportation and commerce in the greater Phoenix area. Major flooding also occurred along these rivers in December, 1978 and February, 1980. The recognition of this flooding problem, and of requirements for the regulatory storage of Central Arizona Project (CAP) water, prompted the U.S. Department of the Interior,...


The History and Archaeology of Nine Historic Sites on the Fort McDowell Indian Reservation: An Overview (1985)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Pat H. Stein.

The Fort McDowell Indian Reservation is rich in historic and prehistoric archaeological resources. Systematic surface searches have located and recorded over 100 archaeological sites within the 40 square mile reservation.

The Modernization of the Salt River Project: The Impact of the Rehabilitation and Betterment Program (1987)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Jay C. Ziemann.

Following the cycle of economic depression of the 1920s and 1930s, and the manpower shortage caused by the outbreak of the Second World War, the various reclamation projects in the western United States suffered from broken-down systems. The Salt River Project, which serves the Phoenix metropolitan area with water and power, was one of these reclamation projects. Canals and laterals that carried invaluable irrigation water seeped and leaked, resulting in water losses of twenty-five percent; many...

Redefining the Archaeological "Site:" Landscapes of Japanese American Incarceration (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Stacey Camp.

The archaeology of Japanese and Japanese American interment has burgeoned in recent years, developing in large part out of research conducted by the National Park Service, and, to a more limited extent, cultural resource management firms and archaeologists working within the context of academia. This paper places these previously conducted research projects in dialogue by looking at the challenges inherent in conducting research on both demographically large and small internment camps. In...
