The Racetrack Project

» Downloads & Basic Metadata

Summary

Between A.D. 1250 and 1450, a large number of ceremonial racetracks were built at and between villages in north-central Arizona. This assemblage began as a relatively dispersed collection, stretching from the Sedona area down to Cave Creek and from the Bradshaw Mountains to the Mazatzal Wilderness. Over time, the racetrack network grew in intensity but became spatially focused atop Perry Mesa, along the middle Agua Fria River. In conjunction with the Legacies on the Landscape Project and Alliance and Landscape Project, The Racetrack Project studies these tracks in order to better understand the role of ritual in social change in 13th and 14th century central Arizona.
