Archaeological Evidence for Bighorn Sheep in the Portland Basin (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Brennan Bajdek. Terry Ozbun. Cameron Walker.

The Burnett Site (35CL96) in Lake Oswego, Oregon, has yielded important information about settlement, subsistence, and lithic technology in the Portland Basin during the Early Archaic. The lithic assemblage is dominated by Cascade-style projectile points, but also contains a high percentage of bifaces and expedient flake technology. The identification of bighorn sheep (Ovis canadensis) blood residues on both hunting and processing tools from the site provides new data about the resources used by...


Archaeological Monitoring of Erosion Control Activities at 38SA1, Saluda County, South Carolina (2005)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Carol Poplin.

"In November 2004, an Archaeologist from Brockington and Associates, Inc., observed shore stabilization activities at 38SA1, to document any disturbed cultural deposits. The plan for stabilization proposed by Dyck and Bailey (2004) was used as an outline for activities. Minor changes to the plan were implemented that were less intrusive that those proposed in Dyck and Bailey (2004)."


The Bonneville Basin and Snake River Plain Connection: Early Archaic Lithic Technology, Geochronology, and Obsidian Procurement at Bonneville Estates and Veratic Rockshelters (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Joshua Keene. Ted Goebel.

Though often considered parts of two different culture areas, the upper Snake River Plain of southeastern Idaho and the Bonneville Basin of the eastern Great Basin may have more similarities in land use and lithic technology than usually thought. In fact, commonalities can be easily documented in projectile point chronologies, subsistence patterns, and even the use of some of the same obsidian sources. In this paper, we consider the early Archaic period, when comparable ecological changes...


Dust Cave Site, AL (1LU496) Project
PROJECT Uploaded by: Renee Walker

Faunal data from Dust Cave Alabama, Renee B. Walker dissertation (University of Tennessee, 1998). Archaic deposits from Dust Cave date between and 5,200 years ago with four distinct Archaic occupations. These include the Early Side-Notched and Kirk Stemmed components (Early Archaic), and the Eva/Morrow Mountain component and Seven Mile Island phase (Middle Archaic). The preservation, and subsequent recovery, of faunal material at the site is exceptional, with an abundance of small fish and...

Flooding, Drought, Fires and Extinctions: How Did Florida’s Foragers Respond to the Pleistocene-Holocene Transition? (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Jessi Halligan. Michael Waters.

While directly-dated sites are somewhat rare, northern Florida contains an extremely rich archaeological record of diagnostic artifacts from the Paleoindian and Early Archaic periods. Very commonly, Early Archaic diagnostics are discovered at the same sites as Paleoindian diagnostics. The Paleoindian components are presumed to be Pleistocene in age, while the Early Archaic is generally but not universally associated with early Holocene ages. Recent research we have been conducting in...


Geoarchaeological Investigation at Buffalo Ranch Site, Burleson County, Texas (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Analise Hollingshead. Michael Waters.

The Buffalo Ranch site is exposed at the base of a cutbank along the Brazos River in Burleson County, Texas. Here, two transitional Paleoindian- Early Archaic Wilson and Big Sandy projectile points along with other artifacts were found eroding from a silty sand deposit believed to be a prehistoric natural levee. This layer and its associated artifacts lie approximately 14 m below the ground surface. Its stratigraphic position indicates an age of approximately 8000 to 8500 14C yr B.P., which is...

Modeling Middle Holocene Site Frequencies in Southeastern Wyoming: Exploring the Early Archaic through Probabilistic Models (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Houston Martin.

The lack of Middle Holocene sites on the Northwestern Plains provided grounds for further research on its source. A range of explanations have been proposed for the low frequency of archaeological sites dating between 8000 and 5000 BP in southeastern Wyoming, including geological, cultural, and researcher bias. Some suggest that human populations occupying the plains during this time were reduced. However, others point out that conditions during and following this time period may have destroyed...


Perishable Artifacts from the Old Vero Site (8IR009), Indian River County, Florida (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only J. M. Adovasio.

Perishable Artifacts from the Old Vero Site (8IR009), Indian River County, Florida J. M. Adovasio Florida Atlantic University Despite depositional conditions inimical to the preservation of plant fiber or wood-derived artifacts, several such objects have been recovered during the ongoing re-excavations of the Old Vero Site (8IR009) in Indian River County, Florida. These include a minute fragment of charred, three ply, braided cordage with a contiguous underlying date of ca. 9,000 calendar years...


PHASE I AND II ARCHAEOLOGICAL INVESTIGATIONS OF APPROXIMATELY 338 ACRES IN AREAS A, B, AND D AT THE SAGE MILL/PINE TREE TRACT AIKEN COUNTY, SOUTH CAROLINA (2012)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Kimberly Nagle. William Green. Heather Jones.

"S&ME, Inc. (S&ME), on behalf of Wyatt Realty Investment Opportunity Fund, has completed a Phase I archaeological survey of approximately 338 acres in Areas A, B, and D and Phase II testing at sites 38AK940 and 38AK1015 at the Sage Mill/Pine Tree Tract in Aiken County, South Carolina (Figures 1 and 2). Phase I fieldwork for the project was conducted from October 19 through November 8, 2011. Phase II fieldwork was conducted from December 12–17, 2011. This work was done in anticipation of...


Sandy Hill: A Preliminary Reanalysis (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Brianna Rae.

The Sandy Hill Site (72-97) was dug on the Mashantucket Pequot Reservation over the course of several years as part of large-scale, multi-phase cultural resource management (CRM) excavations. The site, which dates to the Early Archaic, produced a dense assemblage of quartz lithic artifacts, as well as thousands of charred botanicals and calcined bone fragments. Very few bifacial tools were recovered, which has led to the argument that this site may represent a southern manifestation of the Gulf...


Scope of Work for Data Recovery at 38AK862, Bobby Jones Expressway, Phase 2, Aiken County, South Carolina (2004)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Wayne D. Roberts.

"Located in a wooded area in the proposed right-of-way of the Bobby Jones Expressway, 38Ak862 encompasses approximately 50,000 square meters and contains Middle Archaic and early to Late Woodland occupations. This site will be adversely affected by the future construction of the Bobby Jones Expressway right-of-way."
