ASU excavation offers Hohokam insights

PHOENIX - Recent excavation of Alpha Drive, better known as the former home of Arizona State University's numerous fraternities, found traces of an ancient Hohokam village.

The State Press reports that the excavation will help archeologists discover many aspects of trade between the Hohokam peoples, due to the fact that many ancient artifacts were found on the site.

"This area was very heavily populated by the Hohokam," he said. "And even though we didn't find many houses, we found some fantastic trash pits, which included everything from pottery to fish bones to stone tools."

The territory known as La Plaza de Tempe was occupied by the Hohokam between 450 and 1400 AD.
