Deer Valley Petroglyph Preserve Digital Collections
The reports and records in this collection describe the rock art now interpreted at the The Deer Valley Rock Art Center (DVRAC) and the archaeological investigations that led to DVRAC’s founding in 1994. Paper copies of the reports and other archives, as well as its research library, are now housed at the Center for Archaeology and Society Repository at Arizona State University. In an effort to both preserve these documents and make them more accessible to rock art researchers, a portion of these records are now available on tDAR.
Currently, the majority of the DVRAC collection consists of survey and excavation reports related to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' Adobe Dam Project and New River Dam Project. These include a total of four technical reports on the Adobe Dam site, the Hedgpeth Hills site, and the New River Archaeological Survey, as well as two non-technical reports on the Adobe Dam site and the Hedgpeth Hills site. Additionally, there are numerous journal articles relating to rock art research and several thousand photographs of rock art panels from the Hedgpeth Hills site and other regional rock art sites.
in 2014, the Deer Valley Rock Art Center was renamed as the Deer Valley Petroglyph Preserve and incorporated in the the ASU Center for Archaeology & Society.
