Archaeology and Heritage in the United States (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only William Graves. Sarah Herr.

In this paper we consider how the State, through law and practice, affects United States archaeologists’ abilities to conduct innovative, humanistic research in the context of cultural resource management (CRM) and may become an impediment to inclusive heritage-management practices. CRM is, perhaps, best known for its accumulation of collections and data and its ability to answer middle-range-theory questions that remain broadly ecological in scope. Here, we consider how CRM can better...

Evanston Chinatown A Look At Food-ways And Diversity (2018)
DOCUMENT Citation Only A.Dudley Gardner.

The Evanston Chinatown was occupied from ca 1870 to 1922.  Evanston is located in extreme southwestern Wyoming, in a valley drained by the Bear River.  Excavations of this Chinatown have revealed a diversity of material cultural remains. Based on our findings n this paper we will present the diverse ways the Chinese immigrants adapted to living in Evanston. We will do this by examining the food ways of Chinese immigrants and looking at the macro and micro floral remains recovered from the site.


Human Selection on Maize Size Traits. A contribution from the archaeological record of Tarapacá, chile, South Central Andes. (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Alejandra Vidal Elgueta. Luis Felipe Hinojosa. María Fernanda Pérez.

Maize from Andean region has a recognized complex history, involving ecological and human interaction. Today, while Andean maize show high morphological and low genotypic diversities, the process involved in its production and selection is unclear. In this work we ask how the morphological and genetic diversity of maize has varied through Formative Period to present time in Tarapacá Region, northern Chile? To answer this we analysed thirty morphological traits and eight microsatellites markers...


Levisa 1. Diversity and complexity in a key ¨archaic¨context of Cuba and the Caribbean (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Roberto Valcarcel Rojas. Jorge Ulloa Hung.

The archaeological site Levisa 1, in northeast Cuba, possesses one of the earlier radiocarbon dates for the so called ¨archaic¨ communities in this Island and one of the earliest one from the Caribbean region. For this reason that place is a basic reference for the study of the ¨archaic¨ groups. Also due to its location and potential link with other important archaic sites, and because possesses contexts that reflect diverse types and moments of pre-Arawak’s occupations, and even ceramic use....


Multiscale Diversity in Classic Decorated Pottery in the Hiix Witz kingdom of the Western Maya Lowlands (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Charlotte Arnauld. Mélanie Forné.

A political entity defined mainly on epigraphic evidence, the Hiix Witz kingdom includes at least three head centers, Zapote Bobal, El Pajaral and La Joyanca, all located south of the San Pedro Mártir river. The architecture, sculpture and ceramics of the three sites were subjected to extensive studies from 1999 to 2006, also in 2012, suggesting that this entity consisted of relatively heterogeneous components that must have entertained distinct relations with neighborring regions of the...

Tan Tun: The Enduring Role of Cozumel in the Maya World (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Leslie Perkins. Travis Stanton.

The island of Cozumel has long been known to have been a quintessential place in Late Postclassic Maya culture as the home to the shrine of Ix Chel, the lunar goddess of childbirth and fertility. Maya women of this period were expected to make the pilgrimage to the shrine at least once in their lives, which would have transformed the island into one of the most dynamic and multicultural social contexts throughout the late Maya world. Added to the fact that the island is the easternmost part of...
