Archaeology in the City: A Hohokam Village in Phoenix Arizona


During 1982, 1983, and 1984, archaeologists from the Arizona State Museum at the University of Arizona excavated parts of Las Colinas that were to be affected by the construction of Interstate 10. This research, sponsored by the Arizona Department of Transportation in cooperation with the Federal Highways Administration, was accomplished in accordance with the federal and state laws that govern and protect our nation's cultural resources. By sponsoring the research at Las Colinas, these agencies insured that valuable scientific information contained in these sites would be properly collected, analyzed, and, in that way, preserved.

This document includes an overview of the Hohokam, a brief overview of Las Colinas, an overview of artifact processing and analysis, and an introduction to public archaeology. The document presents archaeological concepts through the example of Las Colinas.
