Fish Through Time at KIS-050, Kiska Island, Western Aleutians (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Nikkita Maybach-Blicharski. Caroline Funk. Debbie Corbett. Brian Hoffman.

Test excavations at KIS-050 during the Rat Islands Research Project Summer 2014 season resulted in abundant faunal assemblages, including a well-preserved fish assemblage. The goals for this research project include the development of a history of human and environment interactions between humans and the land- and seascapes, and the contribution of regional data to broader scale environmental impact studies. Sites occupied over the long term, such as KIS-050, are invaluable to better understand...

The Impact of Humans on Shipwrecks in Lake Winnipesaukee, New Hampshire (2019)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Anthony H Gilchrist.

This is an abstract from the "Reflections, Practice, and Ethics in Historical Archaeology" session, at the 2019 annual meeting of the Society for Historical Archaeology.             Shipwrecks are adversely affected by human activities. Some of the most common activities conducted by humans, including recreational SCUBA diving and fishing, have the potential to destroy the data and cultural integrity of these sites. Human interaction with shipwrecks requires additional research to find the...

Landscape Legacies in Central Arizona: Archaeologists and Ecologists Working Together (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Melissa Kruse-Peeples.

Archaeologists have long used environmental data to reconstruct the past. Recently, environmental scientists have come to realize the value of incorporating archaeological viewpoints in understanding modern ecological systems. It has been shown that human activities, even those that are relatively non-intensive, have the potential to result in long-lasting ecological transformations. Cross-disciplinary alliances between archaeologists and environmental scientists are necessary if we are to...

Landscape Stability, Environmental Resilience and Anthropocene Transformations in Iceland (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Andrew Dugmore. Richard Streeter.

Before the Norse settlement, Iceland was characterised by substantial areas of birch woodland in sheltered valleys, highland willow tundra and birch-willow scrub extending into more exposed areas of upland, coast, and marginal wetlands. Terrestrial mammals had been extirpated by the Quaternary glaciations. Aeolian sediment accumulation rates were low and correlated over kilometre–scales. Rapid colonisation by the Norse (perhaps 20,000 settlers in less than 30 years) and their introduction of...
