Archaeological Prospection for Ring-Midden Features in Southeastern New Mexico Using Lidar Data: An Experimental Study
PROJECT Uploaded by: Rebecca Wells

SRI conducted an archaeological survey for ring-midden features using lidar data in three localities in the foothills of the Guadalupe Mountains and Sacramento Mountains in southeastern New Mexico. The unique shape and prominence of ring middens were identified by remote sensing data and then verified in the field within the sampled areas. The result supports the use of lidar data for project scoping and landscape-level studies, but cannot substitute for Section 106 inventory due to the...


Archaeological Prospection for Ring-Midden Features in Southeastern New Mexico Using Lidar Data: An Experimental Study (2015)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Michael Heilen. Monica Murrell. Timothy Mills. Nahide Aydin. Phillip O. Leckman. Adam Byrd.

The final report presents the methodology and results of this experimental study to see if remote sensing data alone is able to identify the presence of ring-midden features. Lidar data obtained for sample areas was then verified on the ground, and found to be successful in identifying all but disturbed or low-profile ring middens. Therefore, the use of lidar data is appropriate for project scoping and landscape area studies, but not as an alternative to Section 106 survey.

DOCUMENT Full-Text Kathryn Puseman.

Pieces of charcoal recovered from two pithouse features at site LA 4921, Three Rivers, New Mexico, were submitted for identification. These charcoal samples are believed to represent horizontal timbers used in construction of the pithouse roofs. Radiocarbon dates range from 1330 to 1140 years BP, with two sigma calibrated ages ranging from AD 640-1020. These dates suggest occupation by the Jornada Mogollon.

POLLEN AND MACROFLORAL ANALYSES AT SITES IN THE LINCOLN NATIONAL FOREST, NEW MEXICO (2010)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Kathryn Puseman. Linda Scott Cummings.

Samples from five ring middens at five sites in the Guadalupe Mountains of southeastern New Mexico were examined for pollen and macrofloral remains. These ring middens represent roasting pits or hearths with fire-cracked rock that were used from the Archaic to the Jornada Mogollon and up through the historic Apache period. The Apache are noted to still use these types of pits to roast agave (Diane Prather, personal communication, September 22, 2010). Radiocarbon dates from these features ranged...

Fill samples from a hearth and three midden features at site LA 32882 in southeastern New Mexico were examined for pollen and macrofloral remains. An El Paso brownware sherd from one of the midden features also was examined for organic residues using Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR). This site is a long-term seasonal camp, and recovery of two brownware ceramic sherds indicate that the area was utilized by the Jornada Mogollon (AD 200-1400). The various analyses are used to gain...

DOCUMENT Full-Text Joseph A. Tainter.

In order to ensure that no cultural resources will be affected by the proposed Wright Spring (Snaky Canyon) watershed project, an archeological survey was conducted on 250 acres of the Cloudcroft District, Lincoln National Forest, New Mexico, in April 1978. The purpose of the Snaky Canyon watershed project is to alleviate the effects of an arroyo which is deeply entrenched within the valley. A variety of alternative plans for dealing with this arroyo have been formulated. These plans, and their...
