SRI Press

SRI Press is the publications division of Statistical Research, Inc. (SRI), which was established in 1983 by Deborah L. and Jeffrey H. Altschul to provide a vehicle for creative people to do interesting and exciting work on the human condition. The Altschuls’ vision, and the company’s challenge, is to dependably meet the objectives of clients who must comply with cultural resource laws even as we produce significant anthropological and archaeological research. As such, SRI Press is committed to distributing the results of this research to a wide audience, including professional archaeologists, avocational archaeologists, and general readers.

A record of our past work is evident in the award-winning SRI Technical Series, which currently consists of more than 90 numbered volumes. Intended primarily for a professional audience, this series presents the results of our most significant archaeological, historical, ethnographic, and interpretive projects. This tDAR collection contains a selection of these SRI Technical Series reports. In 2014 and 2015 the Press and Digital Antiquity are working on a means of providing access to these reports directly from the SRI Press website for registered users of that website.

    DOCUMENT Jeffrey H. Altschul. William C. Johnson. Matthew A. Sterner.

    [tDAR id: 125773] The Deep Creek site (CA-SBr-176) lies at a confluence. Even a cursory analysis suggests the strategic importance of this location. Environmentally, the area is an ecotone between the mountains and desert. Although lying on the edge of the desert, obtaining water would have been of little concern, for both Deep Creek and the Mojave River generally flow above ground at this juncture year-round. Culturally, the area is located on a point which must be passed by all who use the Mojave River as a...
