Roosevelt Platform Mound Study (RPMS): Articles and Other Documents

Part of: Roosevelt Platform Mound Study

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 unstudied. The RPMS lasted for eight years, about four of which involved field investigation of the sites.

This collection includes an article describing tDAR's work with the RPMS digital collection and four short articles that summarize the research results in general categories or about specific topics.
