Archeological Resources
An important part of Scottsdale's Historic Preservation Program is to identify and protect significant archaeological resources. Archaeological resources include materials from past human activities that are over 50 years old. There are many different types of resources including rock images (called petroglyphs), pottery, houses and other structures, pottery, weapons, tools, clothing, irrigation canals, and basketry. Archaeology is the interpretation of these remains from past civilizations.
