DOCUMENT Full-Text Owen Lindauer.

This report describes the archaeological investigations and results for studies of sites on Schoolhouse Point Mesa, a large geographic unit naturally bounded by the Salt River on its northern end and by major washes on its eastern and western sides (see Figure 1.1).

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...

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.
