Summary

Garden Canyon Village is a large multi-component formative period site located in southeastern Arizona on the Fort Huachuca military reservation. Located 10 miles north of the U.S.-Mexico Border and 65 miles southeast of the Tucson Basin, Garden Canyon Village was located on the frontier of Hohokam, Mogollon, Casas Grandes, and Trincheras culture areas. This poster presents the final results from an analysis of Garden Canyon Village’s ground and chipped stone artifacts. In addition to providing insight into raw materials, lithic technology, subsistence strategies, and regional trade, this project addresses Garden Canyon Village's position in the larger Southwest. The diversity of artifact types and source analysis of non-local materials has revealed that Garden Canyon Village was a crossroads for the movement of goods and an important transition zone between the major culture areas of the Southwest.
