Safford Valley Project
This research by former Preservation Fellow Anna A. Neuzil examined archaeological data from the Safford and Aravaipa valleys in an effort to understand the social consequences of migrations to southeastern Arizona in the 13th through 15th centuries. For more on her recent publication of this research, visit the University of Arizona Press.
Archaeology Southwest Magazine Vol. 20, No. 2, provides an introduction to Safford-area archaeology. The Fall 2008 issue of Archaeology Southwest Magazine (Vol. 22, No. 4), “Immigrants and Population Collapse in the Southwest,” which Dr. Neuzil co-edited, offers an excellent introduction to her research within a regional context.
