Digital Archive of Huhugam Archaeology

The Digital Archive of Huhugam Archaeology will contain digital copies of 1600 major archaeological reports—with 400,000 pages—on the Huhugam (Hohokam) culture of Arizona, known for its enormous irrigation systems and large, sustainable towns. Coupled with new methods of text analysis, this comprehensive archive will transform scholars' ability to answer questions about Huhugam society and will provide crucial long-term data for comparative studies. It will give Indigenous communities access to a wealth of archaeological research on ancestral populations. The general public will obtain information about this fascinating ancient culture by directly accessing the digital archive. Archive development is guided by a crowd-sourced survey and workshops designed to understand the needs of diverse users. The archive will be curated by tDAR, an established digital repository that provides free Web discovery and access to its holdings and pursues a robust program of digital data preservation.
