One Hundred Years of Archaeology at La Ciudad de Los Hornos


When the Salt River Project (SRP) decided to build the Lassen Substation (LSS) along the Western Canal just east of Priest Drive in Tempe, they determined to recover the significant archaeological resources that would otherwise be impacted. Thus a 2-ac parcel of the Hohokam village site known as La Ciudad de Los Hornos was excavated in 1988 by Archaeological Consulting Services (ACS); 195 cultural features were recorded. SRP also contracted with the present authors to write an overview of previous archaeological work at Los Hornos and to interpret its community patterns during the millennium of Hohokam occupation. This study would thus provide a model of the larger cultural context of the SRPLSS/ACS 2-ac sample from a site that encompasses approximately 450 ac.
