Schoolhouse Point Mound Data: Ceramic Bowl and Jar Data from Screened Contexts

Part of the Roosevelt Platform Mound Study: Pinto Creek Complex, Schoolhouse Point Mound (DRAFT) project

Summary

The Schoolhouse Point 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 Schoolhouse Point Mound (AZ U:8:24(ASM), AR-03-12-06-13a(USFS)). The Schoolhouse Point Mound table Ceramic Bowls and Jars from Screened Contexts presents a summary of the basic ceramic vessel forms - bowls and jars - recovered from excavated contexts that were screened.

The table lists designated archaeological contexts - strata - at the site, and then provides the frequency (count) of distinct ceramic bowls and jars assigned to different decorated ceramic types for each stratum. Note that the table presents a count of distinct vessels (i.e., groups of sherds or single sherds assigned to individual vessels) identified to decorated ceramic type. More specifically, it presents a count of rim sherds that were assigned to a single vessel (The Stage 2 Ceramic Decorated/Intrusive analysis examined rim sherds to determine vessel form and ceramic type for individually designated vessels).

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 "Schoolhouse Point Mound Data: Strata" for further data about each stratum, including the assigned stratum type, at the following tDAR url: https://core.tdar.org/dataset/394231

The Schoolhouse Point Mound Data tables were originally published on the Roosevelt Platform Mound Monograph Series No. 6 titled "The Place of the Storehouses, Roosevelt Platform Mound Study: Report on the Schoolhouse Point Mound, Pinto Creek Complex, Part 2." The tables were published in an appendix at the end of the volume. Please see the report volume at the following tDAR URL: https://core.tdar.org/document/394292

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 Schoolhouse Point Mound Data: Strata at the following tDAR url: https://core.tdar.org/dataset/394231 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.

Other Decorated Jar Frequency of individual vessels that were identified to different ceramic decorated wares, other than Roosevelt Red Ware, and identified as jars. The Stage 1 Ceramic Analysis assigned ceramic sherds to distinct vessels and then identified basic vessel forms and parts: bowl rims, necks (jar rims and necks), shoulders, bases, bodies, disks, figurines, handles, pinch pots, beads, and other unfired/fired pieces. The Stage 2 analysis examined distinct vessels (groups of sherds or single sherds assigned to individual vessels) to determine body form and detailed ceramic ware and type. This analysis recorded bowl and jar forms (e.g., incurving bowls, inflected restricted jars, etc.). The analysis was typically restricted to diagnostic vessel parts: bowl rims, jar rims/necks, shoulders, and bases. However, it was extended to body sherds in contexts where there were few to no rim/neck sherds. Please see A Laboratory Plan for Salado Research, pp. 3-12 and 3-23 for details on determining vessel form.
