Third Thursday Food for Thought Presentation – “The Full Story of Pueblo Grande (or at Least a Few Chapters)”
August 18, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
On August 18, 2022, Old Pueblo Archaeology Center’s “Third Thursday Food for Thought” Zoom online program will feature “The Full Story of Pueblo Grande (or at Least a Few Chapters)” by City of Phoenix Archaeologist Laurene Montero. This free presentation will be held from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. ARIZONA/Mountain Standard Time (same as Pacific Daylight Time).
Pueblo Grande is one of the last remaining precontact Hohokam villages with an intact platform mound – or va’aki – in Arizona’s lower Salt River valley. Its importance to descendant Tribal communities is recognized today, and Pueblo Grande continues to yield a wealth of information regarding the past and its connection to the present. Excavation projects in almost 80 percent of this village have unearthed many archaeological features, providing information for compiling a new research database. 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 Third Thursday presentation will combine a brief history of the archaeology of Pueblo Grande, its role in the surrounding irrigation community archaeologists call Canal System 2, and its value as a resource for continued preservation archaeology.
