About the book:

This volume summarizes the 1976-1978 excavations by University of Arizona students and other volunteers of a small portion of a large, pre-Classic Hohokam village, the Hardy Site, located on the east side of Fort Lowell Park in Tucson. The excavated portions revealed houses and related features dating from the Sweetwater or Snaketown phases to the Late Rincon subphase (A.D. 650-1200) of the Tucson Basin Hohokam sequence. This report focuses on the use of space at the Hardy site as it develops through time by examining the distribution of features and numerous artifact categories, and confirms the existence of house or courtyard groups as the organizational units of Hohokam society over the lengthy occupation of the Hardy site. In addition to excavations, the author was able to establish the boundaries of the site, most of which have been covered or impacted by development in Tucson. The edges of the site were devoted to food processing and tool manufacturing rather than houses or trash mounds, which occurred at the core of the community. Excavations also focused on defining two phases the Caņada del Oro phase (A.D. 750-850) and the Cortaro phase, since redefined as the Latin Rincon phase (A.D. 1100-1150), that were little known in the late 1970's. Publication of this report now establishes the baselines for the more recent definitions of chronology and phases in the Tucson Basin
