Arizona construction reveals ancient village

Published on April 4th, 2014 | by Admin



Traces of an ancient village, dating back 4,000 years, have been found at a construction site in southern Arizona.

Experts agree discovery is significant archaeologically — the settlement is likely from the Early Agricultural Period, which predates even the Hohokam culture that was in Southern and Central Arizona from 500 to about 1450 A.D. The find will add additional knowledge about agricultural practices that may be the oldest known in the United States, archaeologists say.

But it’s unclear if it will affect the outlet center’s progress. Its Indianapolis-based developer is already in competition with a Florida developer to build outlet centers on the northwest side.
