The Place of the Storehouses: Roosevelt Platform Mound Study, Part 2

Part of the Roosevelt Platform Mound Study project

Author(s): Owen Lindauer

Year: 1996


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 Management (OCRM) to complete the research for this investigation.

The RPMS was an eight year archaeological research project that began in April 1989. It focused on sites of the Salado period, especially on platform mounds and the residential compounds clustered around the mounds. The study examined sites within four archaeological site complexes, created only for project administrative and management purposes. It investigated sites in the Pinto Creek Complex, a group of large and small villages that were part of extensive settlement on the south side of the Salt River. For administrative purposes only, the complex was divided into two groups of sites referred to as "management groups," one east and one west of Pinto Creek wash. Sites to the east are in the Livingston Management Group; those to the west are in the Schoolhouse Management Group.

This report is the sixth volume in the RPMS report series (the Roosevelt Monograph Series) and the fourth volume that serves primarily as a site description report. The Place of the Storehouses, Roosevelt Platform Mound Study: Report on the Schoolhouse Point Mound, Pinto Creek Complex describes data recovery at the Schoolhouse Point Platform Mound, AZ U:8:24(ASM) or AR-03-12-0613a(USFS), the largest site in the Pinto Creek Complex in the eastern Tonto Basin. It is divided into Part 1 and Part 2. This volume, The Place of the Storehouses, Part 2, describes the artifact analysis of material from Schoolhouse Point Platform Mound.
