Message #407: From: AzTeC SW Archaeology SIG To: "'Matthias Giessler'" Subject: Hohokam Radiocarbon Dates -- A Reply Date: Wed, 11 Dec 96 15:01:00 MST Encoding: 32 TEXT [Follow-up to http://www.swanet.org/discussion/message403.html -- SASIG Ed. ] From: Lisa Armstrong, Desert Archaeology Hello -- Perhaps this reply to your question will help. This is from Dave Gregory, one of the research archeologists at Desert Archaeology in Tucson: "From: J. Massimino I am working on a Fremont chronology project. While I have plenty of 14-C dates for the Fremont, I am currently looking for specific situations in which investigators submitted multiple radiocarbon dates on single pit structures. If you have any ideas on Hohokam investigations / publications which may meet these requirements, I would greatly appreciate your suggestions. Thank you very much for your consideration. Jacki Massimino" Dave Gregory replies: There are numerous examples of multiple 14C dates (usually 2 but sometimes more) from individual Hohokam (and earlier) structures in the southern southwest. I suggest that you start with Jeff Dean's article "Thoughts on Hohokam Chronology" (in Exploring the Hohokam, edited by George Gumerman, 1991, Amerind Foundation and University of New Mexico Press). Jeff compiled tables with an exhaustive list of both 14C and archaeomag. dates, and they include feature numbers and the primary references. After 1991, it would be a matter of searching the literature yourself, but I doubt that the sample would be increased substantially by doing so. Just off the top of my head, I know there are several examples of same in the article "Early Formative Period Chronology for the Tucson Basin" by Deaver and Ciolek-Torrello, The Kiva 60(4):481-529. Hope this helps.
