Archaic Cultures (Other Keyword)
1-16 (16 Records)
The Anasazi Origins Project (AOP) was led by Cynthia Iriwn-Williams to investigate the antecedents of Ancestral Puebloans, which she called the Oshara Tradition, in the Arroyo Cuervo Region of northwestern New Mexico. This project was fundamental to the understanding of the Archaic period in the northern Southwest at a time when this area was understudied. One result of this monumental investigation is the enormous collection of artifacts, ecofacts, and contextual documents from its field...
The Anasazi Origins Project Digital Archives Initiative: Transferring a Legacy Dataset to a Living Document Using tDAR (2013)
The Anasazi Origins Project Digital Archives Initiative, funded by a Digital Antiquity grant-in- aid, is designed to ingest paper documents (site records, inventory sheet for notes, maps, publications, manuscripts, and presented papers) of the Anasazi Origins Project (AOP) Collection into the Digital Archaeological Record (tDAR), an online international digital repository. Furthermore, an electronic database of the AOP paper documents was created and organized using the Laboratory of...
The Anasazi Origins Project Laboratory of Anthropology Database (2013)
This database compiles data from the site records, inventory sheet for notes, and Administrative Report on the Status of the Anasazi Origins Project (AOP I) Collections Curated at Eastern New Mexico University of the Anasazi Origins Project. The Laboratory of Anthropology site record is used to organize this database.

Archaeological Investigations at the La Bajada (LA 9500) and La Bajada Annex (LA 9501) Sites; 1966, 1967, and 1970 (1982)
The following pages describe the work conducted by members of Eastern New Mexico University Anasazi Origins Project at two archaeological sites, LA 9500 (La Bajada) and LA 9501 (the La Bajada Annex), located approximately 27 kilometers southwest of Santa Fe, New Mexico. Dr. Cynthia Irwin-Williams served as Principal Investigator for the Anasazi Origins Project, while the actual fieldwork discussed herein was conducted under the direction of Marshall Gettys and R. Bruce Grove. This report has...

The Case for Archiving Legacy Archaeological Collections into tDAR: Digitizing Approaches for Preservation, Dissemination, and Access (2013)
Paper documents are a time proven technology for the preservation and dissemination of information. The advent of computers and the Internet have enhanced some basic concepts for which paper documents have traditionally been used, such as the management of information on an external platform. Some benefits of using computers are the speed and ease of aggregating and disseminating information. This research will review preservation methods on how to ingest a legacy archaeological collection into...
Digitizing The Anasazi Origins Project: A Geodatabase (2013)
Archaeology is faced with the inheritance problem of managing legacy collections, partly due to the high expense of maintaining them. Often these datasets are unorganized, thus rendering them underutilized, and difficult to properly preserve or to integrate into the current archaeological dialogue. Unfortunately, this problem is a common issue. To address this problem, an examination of the condition of the records and artifacts of legacy archaeological collections is needed. In this thesis,...

A Model for Transferring Legacy Datasets to Living Documents: A Case Study Using A GIS Geodatabase for Archiving (2012)
Archaeology is faced with the inherent problem of managing legacy datasets. Often these datasets are in a state of disrepair, thus rendering them almost useless and difficult to properly archive or to integrate into the current archaeological dialogue. Unfortunately, this is a common issue and there is not much literature on the subject. To address this dilemma, an examination of the condition of the paper documents of a legacy dataset is needed. In this research, I will review the preservation...

New Methods for Understanding the Southwest Archaic: A Density Dependent Approach to Prehistoric Behavior (1980)
The nature of the Southwestern Archaic record, reflecting several thousand years of occupation by small mobile foraging groups, provides a crucial methodological and a conceptual dilemma for archaeologists working in the area. At the heart of this dilemma is the relationship between this kind of archaeological record and the concept of the archaeological site, which is central to contemporary thinking. As broadly defined, an archaeological site may be "any place of any size where there are found...
The Oshara Tradition: Origins of Anasazi Cutlure (1973)
Some of the most intriguing problems in the p re his to r-y of the New World concern the origins and development of the sophisticated sedentary town-dwelling Indians of the Southwestern United States, particularly the Pueblos. Seventy five 'years of extensive research have yielded a considerable amount of infor- matron on the immediate background of these native Pueblo peo- pl es , whose prehistoric representatives archaeologists group under the term Anasazi Culture. However, almost all of this...
The Seasonal Strategy (1971)
In this seminar, we have proposed to explore seasonal economic organization among non-sedentary human groups, both prehistoric and contemporary. The objective of the current discussion is to point up certain features of seasonal economy, which can provide foci for reconstructing prehistoric cultures and bases for the generation of hypotheses concerning the derivation and general implications of seasonality, which can be tested with archaeological data. These hypotheses may be derived...
