McDowell Sonoran Conservancy: The Full Story of Pueblo Grande (or at Least a Few Chapters)
The Hohokam are a remarkable civilization that inhabited the Valley of the Sun for over 1,000 years. T
hey built an extensive canal system throughout the Salt, Gila, and Rio Verde valleys. Pueblo Grande is one of the last remaining pre-contact Hohokam villages. The continued challenge to preserve, research, and interpret pieces of this important place in the face of a changing urban landscape has required creativity, collaboration, and devotion on the part of a diverse group of volunteers and professionals. This presentation will combine a brief history of the archaeology of Pueblo Grande, its role in the surrounding archaeology, and its value as a resource for preservation archaeology.
