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,...

Roosevelt Platform Mound Study (RPMS): Access Database (2014)
DATASET Uploaded by: adam brin

The RMPS Database is the centralized database for project information and for excavation and laboratory results. This relational database stores two primary data types and the relationships among them. It houses RPMS provenience data (i.e., where artifacts and samples were located horizontally and vertically within the archaeological contexts). The database also contains information about the artifacts and sample collected during the archaeological investigation. The database structure centers...

Roosevelt Platform Mound Study: Summary and Synthesis Reports
PROJECT USDI Bureau of Reclamation, Phoenix Area Office. Glen Rice. Charles Redman.

The Roosevelt Platform Mound Study (RPMS) examined the ancient architecture, ecological relationships, economies, settlement patterns, social organization, and subsistence of three Classic period community complexes in the Tonto Basin of Arizona in the geographic areas known as Pinto Creek, Cline Terrace, and Rock Island. The data came from the investigation of over 75 prehistoric sites arranged in three clusters within the Tonto Basin. There are many sites arranged in other clusters that remain...
