7 Salado
Dean, Jeffery S. 2000 Hard New New Quarto 
The culmination of the Roosevelt Archaeological Project in southern Arizona's Tonto Basin, this volume presents fifteen papers synthesizing the archaeological and environmental data gleaned from the surveys and excavations of prehistoric Salado culture, which flourished from the thirteenth to fifteenth centuries. First presented at an Amerind Foundation New World Study Seminar sponsored by the Bureau of Reclamation in 1995, these papers place the Roosevelt archaeological research into southwestern regional context and try to generate a definitive statement on Salado, a highly controversial organizing concept in southwestern archaeology. Among the issues debated on local and regional scales are the Salado concept, origin and diffusion of Salado, environment, irrigation, demography, economic productivity and specialization, social processes and dynamics, political relations, migration and ethnic relationships, ideology and religion, and the geographic scale of Salado.
