Cline Terrace Mound Data: Lithic Size Class Data from Screened Contexts

Part of the Roosevelt Platform Mound Study: Cline Terrace Mound (DRAFT) project

Year: 1997

Summary

The Cline Terrace Mound Data tables provide a summary of the artifacts recovered during Arizona State University (ASU), Office of Cultural Resource Management's (OCRM) Roosevelt Platform Mound Study (RPMS) excavations at Cline Terrace Mound (AZ U:4:33, AZ U:4:132, AR-03-12-06-132). The Cline Terrace Mound table Lithic Size Class from Screened Contexts presents a summary of the size grades of the lithic artifacts recovered from excavated contexts that were screened.

The table lists designated archaeological contexts - strata - at the site, and then provides the frequency (count) of lithic artifacts within different size grades (bins). All lithic artifacts (from screened contexts) - irrespective of artifact type and material type - were assigned to a size class.

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 "?". Artifacts from each feature (or mixed context) are tallied according to strata. Please see column metadata for further detail. Please also see the data table "Cline Terrace Mound Data: Strata" for further data about each stratum, including the assigned stratum type, at the following tDAR url: https://core.tdar.org/dataset/394140

The Cline Mound Terrace Data tables were originally published on the Roosevelt Platform Mound Monograph Series No. 7 titled "A Salado Platform Mound on Tonto Creek, Report on the Cline Terrace Mound, Cline Terrace Complex." The tables were published in an appendix at the end of the volume. Please see the report volume at the following tDAR URL:

TOTAL The total number of lithic artifacts across all size classes in a given stratum.

Over 16 cm Frequency of lithic artifacts that are over 16 cm in size (i.e., fit into the > 16 cm size class). The Stage 2 Lithic Size Class analysis size was conducted in a separate step from the material and artifact class count. All lithic pieces were pooled and then resorted into size grades through the use of a template (or a series of graduated size sorting screens). The size grades are as follows: S1 = < 2 cm S2 = 2.0 – 3.9 cm S3 = 4.0 – 5.9 cm S4 = 6.0 – 7.9 cm S5 = 8.0 – 9.9 cm S6 = 10.0 – 11.9 cm S7 = 12.0 – 13.9 cm S8 = 14.0 – 15.9 cm S9 = 16.0 + cm

Stratum Identifies a major natural or cultural depositional event such as erosional fill, roof fall, floor contexts, and sterile substrate (i.e., a single archaeological context in both horizontal and vertical space). Strata are depicted as horizontal rows of interconnected boxes on a Harris Matrix. A stratum is a combination of an individual feature and a context in or associated with that feature. For example, Feature 10 might be a structure with an erosonial fill stratum, a roof fall stratum, a floor stratum, and a sterile substrate stratum. Within each 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 levels excavated in a feature were aggregated into individual feature strata (e.g., Levels 1 - 3 = Stratum A). A feature's stratum letters are assigned in descending order. A context letter of "?" designates a mixed level or context or artifacts collected out of context. Examples: 0? = General Cultural Fill/No Feature and Indeterminate context 10A = Feature 10 and Context A 10B = Feature 10 and Context B 10C = Feature 10 and Context C 22? = Feature 22 and Mixed and/or Undefined context 22A - Feature 22 and Context A Each stratum (e.g., 10C) is assigned to a stratum type. The stratum data are presented in a separate stratum data table. Please see the data table Cline Terrace Mound Data: Strata at the following tDAR url: https://core.tdar.org/dataset/394140 Examples: 10A = Feature 10 and Context A = Feature 10, erosional fill 10B = Feature 10 and Context B = Feature 10, roof fall 10C = Feature 10 and Context C = Feature 10, floor Artifacts collected from each feature are tallied according to strata. For example, artifacts collected from Feature 10 are tallied for Stratum A, Stratum B, Stratum C, etc.
