This volume contains 31 papers presented at the Oxford VII International Conference on Archaeoastronomy in Flagstaff, Arizona, during the summer of 2004.

Two of the papers on the Americas focus on Chimney Rock in southwestern Colorado, four papers examine famous sites in Mesoamerica, and another paper discusses a long lost sun temple near Machu Picchu in Peru. One of the European papers reports on the equinox orientations of Medieval Churches, and another looks at Viking navigation devices.

The volume concludes with two papers on future considerations involving light pollution of our night sky. Scattered throughout the papers are more than 150 photographs and illustrations, 42 of which are in color.
____ Desert Farmers at the River's Edge: The Hohokam and Pueblo Grande, by John P. Andrews and Todd W. Bostwick, 2000. (80 pages, 28 photos, 61 illustrations) $10
Desert Farmers at the River's Edge: The Hohokam and Pueblo Grande is a book written for the non-specialist about the enigmatic prehistoric people archaeologists call the Hohokam. These desert dwellers thrived in the Sonoran Desert of south central Arizona and northern Mexico for nearly fifteen hundred years. Their reliance on agriculture led to their development of the most sophisticated irrigation canal system in the New World. Mysterious architectural features of the Hohokam - platform mounds, big houses, and ballcourts - have intrigued and puzzled archaeologists for decades. Over one hundred years of excavations at the Hohokam village of Pueblo Grande, now a National Historic Landmark and museum, have led to some fascinating discoveries that shed new light on the Hohokam and Southwest Archaeology.
