Agricultural Sustainability and Environmental Change at  Ancient Gordion
PROJECT Uploaded by: Page Selinsky

This book publishes the results of 220 botanical samples from the 1993–2002 Gordion excavations directed by Mary Voigt. Together with Naomi Miller’s 2010 volume (Gordion Special Studies 5), this book completes the publication of botanical samples from Voigt’s excavations. The book aims to reconstruct agricultural decision making using archaeological and paleoenvironmental data from Gordion to describe environmental and agricultural changes at the site. Different political and economic systems...

CHARCOAL IDENTIFICATION AND AMS RADIOCARBON AGE DETERMINATION OF SAMPLES FROM SITES 59-73 AND 59-111, NEW LONDON COUNTY, CONNECTICUT (2018)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Linda Scott Cummings.

Sites 59-111 and 59-73 are situated in Groton, New London County, Connecticut and are 17th century Native American archaeological sites.
