Middle Gila Basin: An Archaeological and Historical Overview

Author(s): Claudia F. Berry; William S. Marmaduke

Year: 1982


The Central Arizona Project (CAP), Indian Distribution Division (IDD) is designed to deliver allocated CAP water to Indian users. The Middle Gila Basin Overview summarizes and evaluates the known cultural resources in an area 3,570 square miles (9,139 sq km) large, centered on the Gila River. A critical review of past research suggests that many of the concepts and theories used to describe and explain the past in the study area are suspect, that physical and biotic zonation in the study area predict archaeological site distributions in only the most general fashion; and that much of the study area remains poorly examined, or completely unexplored. CAP-IDD systems features are likely to encounter cultural remains of considerable research potential in all parts of the Middle Gila Basin.
