The Classic Period Hohokam, With References to the Sinagua, Salado and Prescott Branches, 1969

Listed in descending order of usefulness, these three pages I believe are the best pages
of the paper:

The Classic Period Hohokam, for 1969 probably the most thought provoking pages in the report.

Appendix A, the Calderwood Site on the lower Agua Fria River. Prior to the publication of this page, there had been no published descriptions.

The Sinagua, little original thought, good quotes from Harold S. Colton's The Sinagua


1999 Foreword

This paper was originally written in 1969. Written for a Southwestern Archaeology class taught by Dr. Alfred E. Dittert, Jr., at Arizona State University, it captured what I thought at the time. Reading it for the first time in many years, the presumptuousness of the work is truly amazing. To be twenty-one again and that sure of the world.

The basic text has been reproduced as faithfully as a mere mortal, prone to mistakes can manage. Spelling mistakes in general and a few grammatical mistakes have been corrected. Many errors of grammar, wording and (most embarrassing) thought remain intentionally intact.

Some corrections have been made in a wholesale fashion. When this has happened, the first instance is left intact, and hotlinked to an annotation page created for the purpose of explicating such changes. Additional thoughts that I have, or have had, relating to the subject of the original paper will also be relegated to the annotation page.

Unavoidable Changes

Navigation between pages required the addition of a table of contents. Additionally, links to all pages are added to the left of the body text and at the bottom of each page. The document has been optimized for viewing in browser windows of 800 x 600 pixels.

General Guidelines

When referencing the 1999 Annotation page or the 1999 Annotation bibliography from a text page, try to use your browser's "Back" button. The use of the "Back" button will return you to the page you just came from, generally to the same location on the page. Using the hot links to return to a previous page will invariably take you to the top of that page, not a location closer to the bottom. Use of the "Back" button may save you frustration and time in relocating the point to which you had already read.

Internationalization

The internet is international. Therefore, two maps are published below to better help visitors who may not have a firm grounding in the geography of the United States. The first map shows the location of the geographic area under discussion by country. The second map further pinpoints the location to the next smaller political unit, Arizona.
