    The Journal of Arizona Archaeology is proud to announce the distribution of its second issue! Guest editors Douglas B. Craig and Todd W. Bostwick have provided our journal's readers with another excellent set of scholarly papers on Hohokam archaeology.

    Volume 1, Issue No. 2 presents a second group of papers from the 2008 AAC Fall Conference "Advances in Hohokam Archaeology." The issue covers a wide range of topics that reflects the diversity of contemporary archaeological research conducted in the Phoenix and Tucson Basins. The papers consider agricultural labor and production, the organization of pottery production, long-distance resource procurement, storied landscapes and places of the Phoenix Basin, and the occupation and use of cerros de trincheras in southern Arizona.

    We hope you enjoy your second issue of the Journal of Arizona Archaeology. The JAzArch team looks forward to providing AAC members with many future issues on Arizona's archaeological record. Share your new issue with your colleagues and tell them about the AAC!

    -- M. Scott Thompson, General Editor
