Classic Period Settlement in the Uplands of Tonto Basin, Roosevelt Platform Mound Study: Report on the Uplands Complex (1997)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Theodore J. Oliver.

This report is the third site description volume for the Roosevelt Platform Mound Study. This volume describes 52 Uplands Complex sites investigated by the Roosevelt Platform Mound Study. Excavations or surface collections were conducted at 32 of the sites. These sites were in four study units located in the bajadas and foothill-transition zone of the piedmont that surround and define the Tonto Basin. Although the four Uplands Complex study units are in separate localities, the term "uplands"...


A Design for Salado Research (1990)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Uploaded by: Keith Kintigh

The Roosevelt Platform Mound Study (RPMS) was one of three mitigative data recovery studies that the Bureau of Reclamation funded to investigate the prehistory of the Tonto Basin in the vicinity of Theodore Roosevelt Dam. The series of investigations constituted Reclamation's program for complying with historic preservation legislation as it applied to the raising and modification of Theodore Roosevelt Dam. Reclamation contracted with the Arizona State University Office of Cultural Resource...


Environment and Subsistence in the Classic Period Tonto Basin, The Roosevelt Archaeology Studies, 1989 to 1998 (1998)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Katherine Spielmann. Marc Baker. Judi Cameron. J. Philip Dering. Suzanne K. Fish. Michael Waters.

This volume serves two purposes. It summarizes the subsistence data from the RPMS project and explores what we have learned from the subsistence-related data from the RMPS investigations, as well as the related Roosevelt Rural Sites Study and the Community Development Study. The Roosevelt Platform Mound Study (RMPS) research design was particularly concerned with Classic period sociopolitical organization. Because platform mounds similar to those of the Hohokam were built across the basin...

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: Report and Data Sets on the Uplands Complex
PROJECT USDI Bureau of Reclamation, Phoenix Area Office. Glen Rice. Charles Redman.

This project includes a report and data sets related to 52 Uplands Complex sites investigated by the Roosevelt Platform Mound Study. Excavations or surface collections were conducted at 32 of the sites. These sites were in four study units located in the bajadas and foothill-transition zone of the piedmonts that surround and define the Tonto Basin. Although the four Uplands Complex study units are in separate localities, the term "uplands" distinguishes these sites from those on the basin floor,...


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...


A Synthesis of Tonto Basin Prehistory: The Roosevelt Archaeology Studies, 1989 to 1998 (1998)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Uploaded by: Claudine Gravel-Miguel

Between 1989 and 1993, the Bureau of Reclamation funded four archaeological projects in Tonto Basin of central Arizona, all associated with the modification of the Theodore Roosevelt Dam. The projects were assigned different research objectives and were conducted by separate research teams. The Roosevelt Bajada Survey (RBS) was a sampling survey by SWCA Inc. of portions of the bajada and foothills surrounding Tonto Basin. The Roosevelt Rural Sites Study (RRSS) conducted by Statistical Research...


Uplands Complex Data, Unit 27 Sites: Strata (1997)
DATASET Archaeological Research Institute, Arizona State University.

The strata represent major natural or cultural depositional events such as erosional fill, roof fall, floor contexts, and sterile substrate. Strata are depicted as horizontal rows of interconnected boxes on a Harris Matrix. Within a feature, each stratum is designated by the feature number (e.g., 10, 11, 12, etc.) and a letter that designates a particular stratum (e.g., A, B, C). The letters are assigned in descending order. Mixed levels and artifacts collected out of context are designated by a...
