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...

An Archaeological Assessment of the Bear Creek Shelter, Lake Whitney, Texas (1978)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Mark J. Lynott.

The Bear Creek Shelter (41HI17) was recorded and tested by the River Basin Surveys in 1947. At that time, the site was judged to be shallow and insignificant. Enlargement of Lake Whitney in 1975 subjected the site to wave action, which resulted in the exposure of numerous artifacts through erosion of the deposit. This was noticed and reported by members of the Texas Archaeological Society. Testing in 1976 and 1978 by the Archaeology Research Program of Southern Methodist University revealed a...
