Fun Fact: Phoenix, Arizona, is named for the mythical Egyptian bird that rose from the ashes of its open funeral pyre, reborn to a new life. Modern Phoenix was built over the ruins of an advanced prehistoric civilization that we call the Hohokam. The Hohokam flourished here in the inhospitable desert for centuries, then mysteriously vanished.
