Analysis of Lithic Artifacts: Site AR-03-08-04-51 (1981)

DOCUMENT [ID: 37121] Jeff Boyer.

This paper reports on an analysis of the lithic artifact assemblage from a small site along the Sacramento River. The site is described in more detail in the paper by Patricia M. Spoerl, "Test Excavations at a Small Site Along the Sacramento River." (see tDAR Record #393944 and #25161). Some 250 lithic artifacts were collected from six 2-meter square test pits, as well as from the surface of the site within the proposed right-of-way. This discussion presents the results of the descriptive...


Archaeological Prospection for Ring-Midden Features in Southeastern New Mexico Using Lidar Data: An Experimental Study

PROJECT [ID: 399004] 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 [ID: 399005] 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.

A Brief History of the Early Years On the Lincoln National Forest (1981)

DOCUMENT [ID: 37118] Patricia M. Spoerl.

During the 1800s many people moved westward and settled areas which had previously been occupied only by Indians or Spanish colonists. Because of this settlement, significant changes began to occur in the landscape of the West. Millions of acres of forested land were cleared for agriculture. Millions more acres were damaged due to wasteful logging operations, fires, overgrazing and subsequent erosion. A concern for this destruction of our nation's natural resources led to passage of the Land Law...

Rocks and Ancient People in Southeastern New Mexico (2013)

DOCUMENT [ID: 391882] Bradley J. Vierra. Kate E. Zeigler. John V. Cafiero.

The immensity and stark beauty of the Pecos River valley in southeastern New Mexico has long been a source of wonder for travelers to the area. Throughout this landscape, there is a staggering variety of rock types—some dramatically exposed as outcrops and others swept into the area by the Pecos River and its tributaries. An example of the dramatic landforms that characterize the area is the Llano Estacado, or “Stockaded Plains.” At approximately 32,000 square miles—an area greater than all of...


Survey of the Wright Spring Watershed (1981)

DOCUMENT [ID: 37125] 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...


Test Excavations at a Small Site Along the Sacramento River (1981)

DOCUMENT [ID: 25161] Patricia M. Spoerl.

Evaluation of cultural resources, that is, the process of determining the significance of a specific resource, is fundamental to any cultural resource management program. The conservation of all cultural resources for future scientific research and for public benefit, would be an ideal situation, but it is not possible given the necessity for certain land disturbing activities which impact these resources. Therefore, evaluations regarding the significance of cultural resources are critical for...
