DFC-AAS: November 13 – Mark Hackbarth

Lecture Opportunity:

Mark Hackbarth M.A., RPA presents Recent Archaeological Investigations in the Foothills.  Three recent excavation projects near Cave Creek have identified small Classic, Sedentary, and earlier sites spanning a timeframe from AD 1-1250.  All three project areas were used to process plant resources but only one included temporary shelters.  The different artifact and feature assemblages provide information about prehistoric adaptations to seemingly barren landscapes.

Mark Hackbarth received a M.A., Anthropology, University of Arkansas in 1980 and B.A. in Anthropology from the University of Arizona in 1976.  He has 35 years of supervisory experience in Southwestern archaeology and 45 years of archaeological experience overall.  His field experience spans excavations at Middle and Late Archaic sites, Early Formative camps (especially Red Mountain phase), and Hohokam villages as well as historic mines, farms, roads, and canals.  Mark served six years as a commissioner on the City of Peoria’s Historic Preservation Commission and another six years on the City of Scottsdale's Historic Preservation Commission.

The public may attend an Arizona Archaeology Society – Desert Foothills Chapter meeting at no charge, except for the holiday party in December.  The AAS-DFC meetings are held on the second Wednesday of each month, September through May.  

Reception and socialization at 7:00 pm, program begins approximately 7:30 pm.
