What Can We See from Here? Hilltop Sites Northwest of Prescott, Arizona and Their Local and Regional Connections
This is an abstract from the "Community Matters: Enhancing Student Learning Opportunities through the Development of Community Partnerships" session, at the 84th annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology.
The Burro Creek/Pine Creek archaeological survey northwest of Prescott, Arizona involved partnerships between Pima Community College and the BLM and private landowners in the area from 2003 to the present. When the survey began, the region was poorly known and only two sites had been recorded within the survey area, both located on prominent hilltops with associated masonry structures. These and other hilltop sites in the region were understood to be part of a network of similar sites with line of sight connections among them, but the broader context in which those sites were built and used was unknown. Survey of over 12,000 acres has located 170 sites including another hilltop site on State Trust land, showing that these hilltop sites were not isolated but were surrounded by contemporaneous smaller sites. This poster explores the line of sight connections among the hilltop sites in the Burro Creek/Pine Creek survey area and others in the local network. It also examines the nature of the smaller residential sites where the builders and users of the hilltop sites lived.
