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 Annotations

Capitalization of "Period" and "Phase"

Excavations At Snaketown, Material Culture, was the definitive work on Hohokam archaeology when it was written. The words 'phase' and 'period', as in Sacaton Phase and Classic Period, were capitalized in that classic work. Therefore, these words were capitalized in my report. Apparently the convention has changed since that time (Todd Bostwick: personal communication). For the purpose of posting as a web document, capitalization of these words is brought into compliance with current convention.

Figures, inclusion of references to into the text and the quality of images.

Pointers to many of the figures in the original document were never added to the text. Therefore, where references to figures are inserted in 1999. they may not appear quite appropriate. This is caused by the desire not to overly modify the original text in the interest of smoothing the flow.

Most of the figures have been redrawn for posting to the Internet. None have been significantly changed from the originals. Where changes have been made, the changes are noted on the figure.

The figures displayed with the text are very low resolution in the interest of download speeds. In some cases, like Figure 1, even the detail is lacking. Those readers interested in the details can load the higher resolution images.

Calderwood Site, time on site.

Subsequent to writing this paper the author spent Sundays of most weekends on site for over two years. Many more observations were made than are reflected in this document.
