AbstractThe archaeology for the Tucson Convention Center Expansion Project, sponsored by the Tucson Local Development Corporation (TI..DC), was performed by archaeologists from the Cultural Resource Management Division (CRMD) of the Arizona State Museum (ASM). Project fieldwork was carried-out in two stages, testing and mitigation, between mid-March and mid-May, 1988. Laboratory work, artifact identification and analysis, historical research, and report preparation, followed the fieldwork phase over the subsequent two years. The project was the first of an archaeological nature undertaken by the TLDC, a private non-profit corporation created by the City of Tucson in 1979. This organization provides long-term financing for small business expansion in the Tucson Metro area and eastern Pima County.

The Hardy Site at Fort Lowell Park, Tucson, Arizona [No. 175]Gregonis, Linda M. (Arizona State Museum, The University of Arizona (Tucson, AZ), 1997)A small portion of the Hardy site, a large, pre-Classic Hohokam village, was excavated by University of Arizona students and other volunteers between 1976 and 1978. The portion of the site that was excavated revealed houses and associated features dating from the Sweetwater or Snaketown phase through the Late Rincon subphase. Information retrieved from the site was used to examine occupation space use and reuse through time, to better define the Canada del Oro phase, and to propose the inclusion of the Cortaro phase (now subsumed within the Late Rincon subphase) in the Tucson Basin Hohokam cultural sequence.
