10 Years, 3 Supervisors, 7 Assistants and 30 Students. How the Iowa Office of the State Archaeologist Managed, Manages and Plans for the Future of Archaeological Data (2018)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Mary De La Garza.

Sustainable accessible data storage is as important to archaeologists as tractors are to farmers. In 2001 the Iowa Office of the State Archaeologist, (OSA), was archiving 20GB of data on a 100GB server. Sixteen years later the office is serving 32TB on several server systems and plans are in place to archive 60TB over the next 4 years. In addition to space needs the office must also make this data in its many forms accessible to outside entities. In the not so distant past archaeologists...


The 18th Century Shipbuilding French Industry : New Perspective on Conception and Construction (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Marijo Gauthier-Bérubé.

The Machault, a French frigate, sank in Chaleur Bay, Québec, in the context of the Seven Years War, in 1760. Built in Bayonne, the archaeological analysis of the frigate gave us a unique vision of the 18th century shipbuilding industry. Coming from a privation shipyard next to the Arsenal of Bayonne, the Machault lay amidst a clash between regional shipbuilding traditions and the globalisation of naval techniques in Europe.   The study of the ship’s structural remains provides a unique view of...

2017 Excavations at McDonald Creek (FAI-2043), A Multicomponent, Open-Air Site in the Tanana Flats Training Area, Fort Wainwright, Central Alaska (2018)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Kelly Graf. Julie Esdale. Ted Goebel.

In 2013 our team began a 3-year testing project to assess the research potential of the recently-discovered McDonald Creek archaeological site (FAI-2043). The site is located in the Tanana Flats of Central Alaska south of Fairbanks. Site testing indicated a well-stratified and reasonably preserved multicomponent site situated in unconsolidated eolian sand and silt deposits atop an ancient alluvial landform. Three cultural components have been identified so far, dating to the early Allerød,...


The Abbey of Pedro Mártir de Anglería – Excavation, Reconstruction and Conservation of an Early 16th Century Ecclesiastical Structure in Jamaica (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Robyn P Woodward.

Christianity anchored the material practices and social institutions of the Spanish settlers in the New World and while Christian friars undoubted arrived in Jamaica with the initial group of settlers in 1509, the Jamaican abbacy was not formally founded until 1515. The ecclesiastical authorities used temporary thatch and wood structures for worship at the capital of Sevilla la Nueva until funds were provided for the construction of a stone church in 1524.  The abbey however, was not quite...


Academic Jobs in Archaeology (2018)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Robert Speakman. Victor Thompson. KC Jones. Isabelle Lulewicz. Carla Hadden.

Over the past three decades, competition for archaeology faculty jobs at North American colleges and universities has risen significantly. Although the numbers of doctorates in anthropology has increased by approximately 70%, the numbers of new faculty positions has remained relatively constant. The present study examines academic job market trends using data derived from the 2014—2015 American Anthropological Association AnthroGuide. We identify which universities are the most successful at...


Addressing Today’s Issues with Yesterday’s Tools (2018)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Jamie Palmer.

Dakota Access Pipeline. Ruby Pipeline. Ocotillo Wind Energy Facility. Topock Natural Gas Compressor Station. These are just a few examples of projects where the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA) failed to protect cultural resources deemed significant by Native American tribes. In these instances, why did NHPA fail? Largely because NHPA does not consider impacts to the complete suite of cultural resources. It only addresses historic properties and historic properties "of traditional...


Advanced AMS 14C Dating of Contaminated Bones Associated with North American Clovis and Pre-Clovis Butchering Sites (2018)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Thibaut Devièse. Thomas W. Stafford Jr.. Michael Waters. Tom Higham.

When humans first colonized the Americas is becoming better understood by the addition of aDNA studies; however, the absolute dating of these late Pleistocene sites is crucial and depends upon accurate 14C dating of the fossils (i.e. bones, teeth and ivory). We re-dated vertebrate fossils associated with the North American butchering sites Wally’s Beach (Canada), La Prele, also known as Fetterman (Wyoming), Lindsay (Montana) and Dent (Colorado). Our work demonstrates the crucial importance of...


Advancing the analysis of complex stratigraphy and house life histories at Keatley Creek on the Northwestern Canadian Plateau (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Julian Henao. Suzanne Villeneuve.

Digital methods have led to a new research paradigm in archaeology and have transformed the way in which archaeologists can engage with archaeological contexts or materials and ultimately understand the past. This paper discusses a few highlights resulting from implementing digital oriented methods and combined new conceptual approaches in the research at Keatley Creek on the Northwestern Canadian Plateau. Two primary objectives for digital methods have included improving resolution and...


Advocating for the Morrow Jones Cabin: Archaeological Investigations at a Historic Homestead (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Katherine Peresolak.

The Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) manages over two million acres of state land. Forbes State Forest, located in Fayette County, Pennsylvania, is home to numerous cultural resources, including the Morrow Jones cabin. Given its location on state-owned property, neglect and natural decay are greater threats to this historic house than development, yet DCNR has limited funding and a finite amount of time to devote to such resources. Detailed study of this house...


All was left in complete order: a first look at the wreck of HMS Erebus (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Ryan Harris.

From the outset, remote-sensing data clearly indicated that the wreck of HMS Erebus survived in remarkably sound condition, a fact later borne out by first-hand diver inspection. This owes to the relatively benign physical environment in which the wreck is situated, its rather atypical site formation history, as well as the elaborate measures taken by Master Shipwrights of the Royal Navy Dockyards to fortify Erebus for Arctic Service. This paper will provide an overview, both internally...

DOCUMENT Full-Text William G. Monaghan. Kathryn C. Egan-Bruhy.

A study was undertaken to construct ArcGIS coverages that “modeled” or “predicted” locales where the conditions were conducive to bury and preserve surfaces or paleosols that may contain buried archaeological deposits within the main trunk of the Red River of the North (Red River), Minnesota and North Dakota. The project study area was broadly defined based on the Great Flood of 1997, which covered a considerable area in the Red River valley. The coverage was expanded to buffer about an area...


AMS RADIOCARBON DATING OF BONE SAMPLES FROM SITES HdSd-70 AND HdSd-370, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA (2013)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Linda Scott Cummings.

Bone fragments collected from sites HdSd-70 and HdSd-370 were recovered during the Williston Reservoir Archaeology Project - 1301, British Columbia, Canada. Sites HdSd-70 and HdSd-370 are in close proximity to one another along an old river channel in the semi-eroded reservoir drawdown zone. The bone at these sites consisted of isolated and restricted surface and subsurface scatters at the edge of the channel. Dates from these samples are expected to fall in the mid- to late-Holocene.
