The 1982-1984 Excavations at Las Colinas: Syntheses and Conclusions


This is the sixth in a series of seven volumes reporting results of archaeological investigations at Las Colinas, a predominantly Sedentary and Classic period settlement on the Salt River within the boundaries of what is today urban Phoenix. Excavations at Las Colinas were funded by the Arizona Department of Transportation and the Federal Highway Administration, with the additional support of the University of Arizona during report preparation and publication phases of the project. Work was conducted under Arizona State Permit S-82-16.

Earlier volumes in this series presented data summaries and interepretations by project analysts, and a final volume (7) provides basic data and results of some specialized studies. The present volume synthesizes results of the various studies within the larger context of the project research design (Volume 1 in this series), in order to interpret the relevance of this site for better understanding the prehistoric Hohokam of central Arizona. Specific topics addressed include the implications of archaeomagnetic dating for regional chronology, the development and structure of Las Colinas itself, implications of project data for problems of social organization and economy, relationships within central and southern Arizona during the occupation of the site, and the inferences that may be drawn from Las Colinas data, in conjunction with other information, regarding the end of a recognizably Hohokam presence in central Arizona after about A.D. 1450.
