Life and Death at Ironwood Village: An Early Ballcourt Site in Southern Arizona

January 16 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Suggesting Donations for speaker fee
This is the annual membership meeting of the Verde Valley Archaeology Center with report of officers and election of directors. Following this short 30-minute meeting, Director of Archaeology, Dr. Todd Bostwick, will described excavations in 2014 for a new shopping center that uncovered a Hohokam village in Marana, north of Tucson, on the east side of the Santa Cruz River. This site contained a previously unknown ballcourt, one of the earliest ever constructed by the Hohokam. Surrounding the ballcourt were nearly 100 pit houses and more than 250 burials, which dated to the late Pioneer and Colonial periods, circa AD 650 to 850.
