Arizona Archaeological Council Fall Conference

Pueblo Grande Museum

November 8, 2019

9 am to 4 pm 


The Arizona Archaeological Council is sponsoring the 2019 Fall Conference at Pueblo Grande Museum in Phoenix. This year’s theme is  “Current Research in Arizona Archaeology.” We have a range of papers addressing recent excavations along SCIP Canal 9 on the Gila River Indian Community, Hohokam brewing, Hohokam food processing pits at Escalante Ruin, an update on tDAR’s Digital Archive of Huhugam Archaeology, the Snake/Bird motif, ceramic exchange, and a discussion of platform mounds. Following the papers, we will provide an opportunity for updates on current field projects. After the conference, we are hosting a happy hour at Boulders-on-Broadway in Tempe.  The conference is FREE to attend, but we welcome donations to the AAC to support these activities. The AAC produces the Journal of Arizona Archaeology, current issues which are available only to our members. If you are not currently a member, there will be opportunities to join at the conference or via our website at
