Jeffery J. Clark and James M. Vint, editors.
The Tonto Creek Archaeological Project was conducted in the Tonto Basin of east-central Arizona on Tonto National Forest land. The project was funded by the Arizona Department of Transportation and conducted from 1992 through 1996. Portions of 27 sites were investigated, ranging from the Middle Archaic period to the late Historic period. This publication is the synthetic volume for the project. Chapters summarize the results of various analyses and discuss subsistence, exchange, social organization, organization of production, technological change, and cultural affiliation of the inhabitants of the project area. Project results are compared with those from other recent large cultural resource management projects in the Tonto Basin conducted by Desert Archaeology, Inc., Arizona State University, and Statistical Research, Inc. 342 pages, 68 tables, 97 figures.
