Point of Pines Sites

Point of Pines Sites is a set of archaeological sites in the U.S. state of Arizona that are significant for associations with Anasazi, Mogollon and Hohokam cultures. The sites were chosen as a field school location by Dr. Emil Haury because of the unusual presence of all three major prehistoric cultures of Arizona.

Point of Pines, actually a series of pueblo sites on a spur off the Nantack Ridge, was also a good location for continuing research that had begun at Kinishba and Forestdale. For most of its early history the sites in the area fit the model of the Mogollon Culture identified by Haury and others. Later on, after the 13th century there was apparently an influx of Anasazi from the Colorado Plateau and possibly the Hohokam of the Safford region.

The presence of Jeddito ware, a pottery type associated with the Hopi heartland, indicates at least trade with that area if not actual movement of people. Terah Smiley, a student of Haury's at Point of Pines, excavated and identified the rectangular Western Pueblo style kiva, forms of which are still in use today, at several of the sites. It was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1964.[1]
