EVENT: 2,500 Years in the Marsh: The Prehistory of the Marsh Station Road Site
DATE/TIME: Tuesday, September 7, 2010, at 6:00 p.m.
LOCATION: Casa Vicente, 375 S. Stone Avenue, Tucson, AZ.
This Archaeology Café convened on Tuesday, September 7, 2010. We were joined by a panel of archaeologists from William Self Associates, Inc., who discussed their work at the Marsh Station Road (MSR) site. This 20-acre site is located near the confluence of Cienega Creek and Mescal Wash, southeast of Tucson. MSR was inhabited at several points in time between 1050 B.C. and A.D. 1400. Project director Michael Boley shared what the team has learned about life and subsistence at MSR, especially during the Early Agricultural and Hohokam Sedentary (Middle Rincon) periods. Their findings have implications for use of the “hinterlands” concept in Hohokam archaeology in the region.
