What happened to the Hohokam? Archaeologists have searched for an answer to this question since the late 1800s. Travel back in time to visit this ancient culture that flourished in central and southern Arizona for 1000 years, from approximately A.D. 450 to 1450. Known for complex irrigation systems, impressive ball courts, extraordinary pottery and remarkable jewelry, the Hohokam numbered around 40,000 during their zenith, c. A.D. 1300, but fewer than 10,000 were present only 200 years later.
