DOCUMENT Full-Text Dave Batcho. Glen Rice.

AZ U:11:23 is a small sherd and lithic scatter within the right-of-way of a 500 kV power transmission line planned by the Salt River Project. The right-of-way extends from the boundary of the Tonto National Forest northeast of Florence to the existing Kyrene substation south of Tempe, Arizona and was reported by Antieau (1977). This site was initially located during that survey and listed as Field Numher 128. Since the locus was on land belonging to the Bureau of Land Management, it was not...

Archaeomagnetic Dates and the Hohokam Phase Sequence (1988)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Jeffrey Eighmy. Randall H. McGuire.

Few things in Southwestern archaeology are so widely and hotly contested as the Hohokam phase sequence and chronology. Presently, no fewer than 12 different Hohokam chronologies exist and more appear to be under production. Disputes concerning the Hohokam chronology involve not only the dating of phases but also, even more basically, challenges to the integrity of the phase definitions. In the last decade, controversy has focused on three aspects of the chronology; (1) the validity and ordering...

DOCUMENT Full-Text Alfred E. Dittert, Jr.. Paul R. Fish. Don E. Simonis.

One of several construction programs proposed for inclusion in the Central Arizona Project was a system of aqueducts to link Parker Dam on the Colorado River in western Arizona and the Charleston Damsite on the San Pedro River in southeastern Arizona. Since the possibility existed that archaeological remains might be destroyed by necessary subjugation of lands for the aqueduct, the Southwest Archaeological Center of the National Park Service, U.
