Images of Archaeology
The Arizona State Museum is the photographic archive for many of the major archaeological excavations in Arizona. These have included: the Naco and Lehner sites; Paleo-Indian mammoth kill sites; Ventana Cave, a multi-component site with occupation levels ranging from Paleo-Indian to Hohokam; University of Arizona Archaeological Field Schools at Forestdale, Point of Pines and Grasshopper, all Mogollon sites; and work by Earl Morris in the Prayer Rock District. In 1950, the museum received as a donation from Harold Gladwin, the complete photographic records of all site surveys and excavations performed by the Gila Pueblo Archaeological Foundation.
The site of Snaketown is one of the most significant Hohokam sites ever excavated. It was first excavated in 1934-35 by the Gila Pueblo Foundation, with the second excavation conducted in 1964-65 under Emil Haury. The photographic records, documenting the environment, the excavations, the excavators and the artifacts from both of these excavations are archived at the State Museum.
