Prehistory in West Prescott, Arizona

Paperback ($21.95) Buy

Excavations at seven sites in West Prescott, Arizona, provide new information on a poorly understood group. The results suggest a “pit house-figurine” population of the Prescott Culture who reinforced social identity through production of ceramic figurines in human and animal forms. Evidence indicates use of a range of local wild resources including large game, cultivation of maize and other domesticated plants, and trade in marine shell, Hohokam ceramics, and at least some of the Prescott Gray Ware pottery that is associated with this culture.
