Archaeology in America: Cline Terrace Platform Mound and Tonto National Monument (2009)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Glen E. Rice. Arleyn W. Simon. David Jacobs.

The Cline Terrace site (AD 1280 to 1400) was a Hohokam style platform mound in the Tonto basin of central Arizona. Cline Terrace is one of the most thoroughly documented platform mounds in the Southwest. A modern excavation project, the Roosevelt Platform Mound Study, generated a large data set from the platform mound, as well as from three villages and two hamlet sites surrounding the mound. These data enabled detailed comparisons between a platform mound and the associated communities where...


Archaeology in America: Hohokam Platform Mounds (2009)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Glen E. Rice. Arleyn W. Simon. Owen Lindauer.

The prehistoric Hohokam people of central Arizona constructed platform mounds at more than 100 sites between AD 1250 and 1450. These were stage-like platforms 2–2.5 meters high on which the Hohokam built rooms to place them in higher and more prominent locations in comparison to other rooms in the surrounding community. Sometimes additional rooms were constructed around the base of the platform mound, and a wall was built at ground level to surround the platform mound and rooms inside a...

Platform Mounds of the Arizona Desert: An Experiment in Organizational Complexity (1993)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Glen E. Rice. Charles Redman.

Platform mounds were built by the prehistoric Salado and Hohokam people of southern Arizona from the 13th through the 15th century A.O., the Classic period. They are basically artificial, flat-topped hills on which the ruling families of the day built their homes. Additional residences and storage rooms were built around the base of a mound, and the whole was enclosed within a compound wall. Each mound was the administrative, ceremonial, and economic center for a small-scale political system,...
