Future Salado Research: Roosevelt Archaeology at ASU Center for Archaeology & Society Repository

Author(s): Arleyn Simon; Stephen Reichardt

Year: 2016


Archaeological collections have vital roles in contemporary and future research activities and afford opportunities for in-depth localized studies or broad regional syntheses. The Center for Archaeology & Society Repository (formerly Archaeological Research Institute) at Arizona State University curates the Roosevelt Archaeology Projects funded by the US DOI Bureau of Reclamation in cooperation with the Tonto National Forest. These well documented large scale excavations provide research and catalog databases of Salado Sites in the Tonto Basin of central Arizona dating from AD 1200 through AD 1450. Extensive excavation at large platform mound communities with well documented collections and related analyses files, and field and lab documentation provide ample empirical evidence for testing of new interpretive models of the Classic Hohokam Period (Salado) dynamics. The research request process is detailed along with a summary of the collections. In addition, the CASR also manages the extensive ASU Anthropology Collections which contain many other Southwest archaeological collections. Ongoing public outreach programming highlights research topics on the cultural heritage of central Arizona.
