The Arizona State University Center for Archaeology and Society is an organization that addresses enduring issues in the present by using archaeology's unique access to the diversity of solutions developed by ancient Southwestern cultures. The Center is concerned with artifacts, archaeological sites and ancient landscapes – the objects, buildings and places of the past – both in their own right and for what they tell us about the societies that made and used them. It investigates the organizational strategies, management of resources and technological developments of ancient societies in order to understand the ways in which they adapted to their environments. Through these efforts the Center addresses contemporary concerns with sustainability, the implications of technology and the resilience of different forms of social and economic organization, particularly in arid regions such as the U.S. Southwest. The Center pursues this mission with innovative efforts in academic research; physical and digital object curation; formal and informal education; and community engagement.

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...

    DOCUMENT Full-Text Glen E. Rice. Arleyn W. Simon. David Jacobs.

    The Cline Terrace site (AD 1280 to 1400) was a Hohokam style platform mound in the Tonto basin of central Arizona. Cline Terrace is one of the most thoroughly documented platform mounds in the Southwest. A modern excavation project, the Roosevelt Platform Mound Study, generated a large data set from the platform mound, as well as from three villages and two hamlet sites surrounding the mound. These data enabled detailed comparisons between a platform mound and the associated communities where...

    The prehistoric Hohokam people of central Arizona constructed platform mounds at more than 100 sites between AD 1250 and 1450. These were stage-like platforms 2–2.5 meters high on which the Hohokam built rooms to place them in higher and more prominent locations in comparison to other rooms in the surrounding community. Sometimes additional rooms were constructed around the base of the platform mound, and a wall was built at ground level to surround the platform mound and rooms inside a...

Additional residences and storage rooms were built around the base of a mound, and the whole was enclosed within a compound wall. Each mound was the administrative, ceremonial, and economic center for a small-scale political system,...
