Hoyo Negro: The Formation and Transformation of a Submerged Late Pleistocene Cave Site in Quintana Roo, Mexico (2018)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Dominique Rissolo. James C. Chatters. Alberto E Nava Blank. Eduard Reinhardt. Patricia Beddows. Shawn Kovacs. Shawn Collins. Pilar Luna Erreguerena.

Exploration of the submerged cave systems of Quintana Roo, Mexico, has afforded researchers access to uniquely preserved Late Pleistocene and Early Holocene deposits that can reveal a wealth of information about the human ecology of the Yucatan Peninsula at the end of the Last Glacial Maximum. The interdisciplinary Hoyo Negro Project aims to identify and reconstruct the processes that have formed and transformed the site over millennia. In addition to ongoing studies of the human skeleton from...


Identifying Submerged Paleocultural Landscapes: A Collaborative Archaeological Approach (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only David Robinson. Doug Harris. John King.

Narragansett Indian Tribal oral history relates to us that "More than 15,000 years ago, the ancient villages of the Narragansett were out where the ocean is now. The waters began to rise overnight and the people had to abandon their homes." This Tribal oral history echoes the regional geological record indicating that at the time of the last glacial maximum, ca. 24,000 years ago, what are now the Atlantic waters of Rhode Island and Block Island sounds were part of a subaerially-exposed...


An Initial Site Assessment of Submerged Naval Aircraft off the Coast of Pensacola, Florida (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Hunter W Whitehead. Nicole O Mauro.

Known locally as the U.S. Navy's ‘Cradle of Aviation’, the Naval Air Station in Pensacola, Florida has been a fundamental training ground for U.S. naval aviation since the beginning of the 20th century. During World War II, the U.S. Navy was eager to train as many young pilots as possible. Many of those inexperienced pilots were quickly processed through an accelerated flight-training program. Often aircraft would be lost during training missions and left to sink in the Gulf of Mexico. Available...

Toward the Remote Identification of Stone Tools in Submerged, Buried Contexts Using Acoustics (2019)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Morgan Smith. Shawn Joy. Timothy de Smet. Michael Faught.

This is an abstract from the "SAA 2019: General Sessions" session, at the 84th annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology. Since the inception of geophysical survey, archaeologists have longed for the ability to detect the presence or absence of artifacts in buried contexts remotely. This ability is particularly desirable underwater, where accuracy in site location and efficiency in excavation are paramount given the expense and logistical burden associated with performing...


Which Way is Ashtabula? Recent Archaeological Investigations within Lake Erie Waters of Ashtabula County, Ohio (2019)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Haley Streuding.

This is an abstract from the "Submerged Cultural Resources and the Maritime Heritage of the Great Lakes" session, at the 2019 annual meeting of the Society for Historical Archaeology. In 2018, Coastal Environments, Inc., (CEI) conducted a targeted cultural resources survey in the Lake Erie waters of Ashtabula County, Ohio, a study area covering ca. 30 square miles of lake bottom.  The project’s first phase consisted of a geophysical survey at selected locations within the study area.  The...
