Hohokam Archaeology along the Salt-Gila Aqueduct Central Arizona Project, Volume IX: Synthesis and Conclusions


This volume is the last in a series of nine reporting the work of the Salt-Gila Aqueduct, Central Arizona Project Archaeological Data Collection Studies and Supplemental Class 3 Survey Project (SGA). This study was funded by the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation (Contract No. 0-0732- V0101) to mitigate potential adverse impacts of Central Arizona Project construction on cultural resources in the aqueduct right-of-way. Data recovery was conducted at 45 Hohokam sites along a 93 km (58 mile) transect extending from Apache Junction to a point southwest of Coolidge and near Picacho, Arizona (Fig. Intro. 1). This is the largest of the Central Arizona Project archaeological studies to date, although it may fall short of being the largest that will be conducted under the program. The complexity of this project is reflected in the report series, which mirrors both the historical development of project research and the functional and geographical variability of the sites that were studied. The report sequence has included the following volumes: Volume I. Research Design, Volume II. Supplemental Archaeological Survey, Volume III. Specialized Activity Sites, Volume IV. Habitation Sites on Queen Creek and Siphon Draw, Volume V. Small Habitation Sites on Queen Creek, Volume VI. Habitation Sites on the Gila River, Volume VII. Environment and Subsistence, Volume VIII. Material Culture, Volume IX. Synthesis and Conclusion. Finally, the conclusions derived from SGA Project research are presented. Throughout these reports there has been an effort to insure that readers have sufficient information to form their own opinions regarding the implications of project data. It is here that the project staff present their final assessments of what SGA means for Hohokam prehistory. The length of individual chapters is not determined by the present importance of the subject but by the quantity and quality of information available and the extent to which interpretation is possible.
