Enclosed, semi-subterranean storage facilities are synonymous with the Late Prehistoric Monongahela tradition in the lower Upper Ohio River basin. While these structures have been described in detail and changes in construction techniques have been documented, their interpretive value for Monongahela tradition subsistence-settlement system change has not been fully exploited. Changes in the number and location of storage facilities among Monongahela tradition sites, as well as changes in size and construction techniques, may reflect increasing social complexity in response to higher population densities and restricted mobility.
