The 1977 Excavations of French Fort St. Pierre (1719-1729): Adaptation on the Louisiane Frontier   (2013)
DOCUMENT Citation Only LisaMarie Malischke.

Dr. Ian W. Brown excavated the site of French Fort St. Pierre, near Vicksburg, Mississippi, from 1974 to 1976. A 1977 season by the Mississippi Department of Archives and History was never fully reported. As part of a new dissertation project, an initial report as to the contents of this collection will be presented. The artifact assemblage suggests that the garrison and other inhabitants of Fort St. Pierre suffered from a lack of supplies that led them to adapt to frontier life by turning to...


Adapting and Improvising: Materiality and the Politicization of Historic Structures (2021)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Kasey Diserens Morgan.

This is an abstract from the session entitled "Documenting the Built Environment (General Sessions)" , at the 2021 annual meeting of the Society for Historical Archaeology. This paper explores how tactics of improvisation and adaptation of colonial era structures to meet modern needs have changed over time in the historic town of Tihosuco, Quintana Roo, Mexico. Until 2019, when Tihosuco was declared national patrimony due to its role in the Caste War of Yucatan (1847-1901), much of the...

Archaeology and Bioarchaeology of the Northern Woodlands - Report (Legacy 94-0008) (1997)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Elizabeth Benchley. Blane Nansel. Clark Dobbs. Susan Thurston Myster. Barbara O'Connell.

This overview study is intended to provide a summary of what is known about the archaeology of Wisconsin, Iowa, and Minnesota as an aid to CRMs. After reviewing the physical setting, culture history, and bioarchaeology of the region by state, a final integrative chapter proposes a series of adaptation types which crosscut traditional political and temporal boundaries.

DOCUMENT Full-Text Mary Adair. Matthew Hill. Jack Hofman. William Johnson. Karolyn Kinsey. William Lees. Brad Logan. Larry Martin. Douglas Owsley. Kyeong Park. Karin Bruwelheide.

This report provides a summary of the current and past environments of northern Kansas, Nebraska, and northeast Colorado (the Central Great Plains), providing a framework within which to review and discuss changes in prehistoric and historic subsistence economies, technologies, mobility/sedentism, organization, and group interactions. A traditional cultural historical summary is provided for the region from about 20,000 years ago to the historic period.


Archaeology and Paleoecology of the Central Great Plains - Report (Legacy 94-0008) (1996)
DOCUMENT Full-Text George Grison. Robert Mainfort.

This report is a review of the 12,000 years of human occupation in the Northwestern Great Plains states of Montana, Wyoming, North Dakota, and South Dakota. Synthesis of the archaeological and bioarchaeological resources under the guise of human adaptation types revealed significant gaps that should be addressed by future research.

Big Data, Human Adaptation, and Historical Archaeology: Confronting Old Problems with New Solutions (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Jeffrey Altschul.

How humans respond to climate change has been identified as one of archaeology's grand challenges. Traditionally, archaeologists correlate local or regional environmental reconstructions with human settlement to form post hoc inferences about adaptive and social responses to changes in climate and associated environmental resources. Regardless the logical strength of these explanations, rarely can they be generalized beyond the case study. To offer general statements about human adaptation to...


Contributing Historical Archaeology to Global Efforts to Address Climate Change (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Marcy Rockman.

In the most recent Summary for Policy Makers from the IPCC Working Group II (Adaptation), this statement, "Throughout history, people and societies have adjusted to and coped with climate, climate variability, and extremes, with varying degrees of success," is written without attribution.  Though this statement is a consensus view, the absence of a footnote disconnects it from analyses of the human past and the models of adaptation developed in the IPCC reports. This is a big gap. The most...


Defending The East Coast: Adapting And Converting Commercial Ships For Military Operations (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only William S. Sassorossi.

The United States was not fully prepared for war in the Atlantic Ocean directly following the bombing of Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941.  Plans and resources were needed to counter Germany's U-boat operations that quickly followed the Japanese attack.  The U.S. Navy acquired ships of all types from both public and commercial sectors and adapted them for military use.  The focus of this study will be on converted fishing trawlers, specifically ones ultimately wrecked off of the coast of North...

From Invention to Methodology: the overlooked "DIY" in everyday archaeology (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Eric Poehler.

Archaeology has always been "DIY". It has borrowed nearly all of its physical tools and many of its intellectual instruments as well. In this still new, 21st century realm of digital archaeology our implements look different, but their basic implementation does not. From the shovel to the computer, from the trowel to the database, from the paintbrush to the paint program, archaeology has had to teach itself how to adapt an object - physical or digital - to the needs of the discipline. Using the...


In Hot Water: Climate Change and Underwater Archaeology (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Jeneva Wright.

Climate change is one of the greatest challenges facing humanity. To date, however, archaeologists are still developing their relevancy and role in informing climate change research, management strategies, and understanding. Coastal and underwater archaeological research has significant potential to offer insights into past human adaptations to climate change, and to provide an anthropogenic lens through which the history of climate change might be viewed. In addition to providing historical...


Lawrence Straus on Palaeolithic Art: How to marry art and adaptation? (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Manuel Gonzalez-Morales.

As a great specialist in Palaeolithic Archaeology of the Old World, and also a superb connoisseur of the painted and engraved caves of France and Spain, Professor Straus had to deal with the problem of fitting the evidence of Palaeolithic “art” in the general adaptive framework of the processual Archaeology he was practicing along his professional career. In this presentation I want to analyze the evolution of his thinking about this topic, as a reflection on the general theoretical problems...


The Market on the Edge: Production, Consumption, and Recycling in Winter Houses of Transhumant Euro-Newfoundlanders (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Anatolijs Venovcevs.

While the nineteenth century transformed North America through explosive growth in industrialization and consumerism, growth in Newfoundland, one of Europe’s oldest overseas colonies, was constrained by its harsh climate. Much like in centuries earlier, industrial-era Newfoundlanders continued to rely on its one fickle and seasonal resource – cod. To mitigate the erratic nature of this aquatic mono-crop, many rural Euro-Newfoundlanders participated in a form of transhumance spending up to six or...


The NPS Cultural Resources Climate Change Impacts Table (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Marcy Rockman. Marissa Morgan.

The US National Park Service (NPS) is actively preparing for climate change and its current and potential effects across all of the cultural resources for which it has responsibility for management and guidance. These include archeological resources, cultural landscape, ethnographic resources, museum objects, and structures and buildings. However, the agency currently lacks data detailing how cultural resources will be affected by changing climates. To address this gap in knowledge, the NPS...
