Recent excavations at Pueblo del Monte, intensive and extensive surveys of the surrounding area of the lower Salt River Valley, and pollen analysis of surface samples and samples from Arizona U:9:100(ASU) support the formulation of a culturalecological model for the Classic Hohokam period, from A.D. 1150 to 1450, in central Arizona. The model describes the florescence and decay of the Classic period Hohokam without recourse to unsubstantiated invasions and migrations of non-Hohokam groups. The model can be tested by future excavations and surveys.
