Honey Bee Village is a prehistoric Hohokam Ballcourt Village on the southeastern flank of the Tortolita Mountains in the middle of the Canada del Oro Valley. While only traces of this village are now visible the site included a cluster of 19 large mounds surrounding a plaza, a ballcourt and a special-use walled enclosure. As many as 500 to 800 domestic houses are present at the site along with many other cultural features. There is an impressive pottery sherd scatter. The site was extensively studied by Desert Archaeology, Inc. and is the subject of a recent two volume report. Henry Wallace will led the tour which should last about 2 hours. To register contact David McLean. Registration is limited to 20 people.
