Nonriverine Hohokam Adaptation, Preliminary Results from the Tucson Aqueduct Project

Author(s): Donald E. Weaver; Richard Ciolek-Torrello

Year: 1984


The Museum of Northern Arizona (MNA) has been conducting archaeo­logical investigations in the Picacho Mountains area of south central Arizona since late 1983. Under contract to the Bureau of Reclamation, MNA archaeologists have surveyed and partially or completely surface collected, tested and excavated more than 30 Hohokam sites scattered along a 1 mi wide and 42 mile long aqueduct right-of-way (Figure 1).It is important to note that the sample of sites under investiga­tion suffers from all of the theoretical and methodological limitations typical of an arbitrary sample selected on the basis of nonarchaeological criteria. Further, since some analyses are still underway, the inferences and conclusions presented in this paper are preliminary and subject to change as additional analyses and the associated understanding, become available.
