"Ancient Engineers of the Salt River Valley."
The prehistoric Hohokam Indians who inhabited the Phoenix metropolitan area

discuss the complex system of irrigation canals that they constructed to 
bring water from the Salt River to their agricultural crops during ca. A.D.

discovered in the New   World.

Professional excavations at Heritage Square in downtown Phoenix were

 This slide presentation discusses the archaeological remnants of the 
historic Original Phoenix Townsite (ca. 1890-1920) that were uncovered, as 
well as portions of     an even earlier prehistoric Hohokam settlement 
called "Pueblo Patricio" (ca.  A.D. 100-1400).

"The Historic Archaeology of the Second Phoenix Chinatown."
This slide presentation will summarize the results of recent professional 
excavations by archaeologists from Dames and Moore under the America West

1890s through   approximately 1930.

Services, Ltd.
"From the Outhouse to the Outfield:  The Archaeology of the Bank One

archival research at the Bank One Ballpark location in downtown Phoenix; 
these excavations were requested by the Maricopa County Stadium District and 
Arizona Professional Baseball and focused on the southeast corner of the 
original 1870   Phoenix townsite.  This area has a wonderfully colorful 
history that will be    verified and expanded upon as a result of these 
archaeological and historical   investigations.
