Salado Ceramics and Social Organization: Prehistoric Interactions in Tonto Basin, The Roosevelt Archaeology Studies, 1989 to 1998

Summary

This report is the second synthesis volume of the Roosevelt Platform Mound Study (RPMS), a multi-year archaeological research project in Tonto Basin of central Arizona that began in April of 1989.

This report examines ceramic types as a means of investigation community and social relationships among and between the ceramic producers and users. Stylistic, mineralogical, and chemical analyses are used to investigate these topics.

The RPMS was funded by the Bureau of Reclamation, Department of the Interior, and conducted by the Office of Cultural Resource Management in the Department of Anthropology at Arizona State University. The work was performed under a permit from the Tonto National Forest. The research for the RPMS project was made necessary as a result of modifications to the Theodore Roosevelt Dam.
