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)."

Ceremonial Artifact Breakage in the Archaic Period of Eastern North America (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Kyle Forsythe.

Intentional breakage of artifacts proliferates throughout the archaeological record in Eastern North America. Using the case of a Middle Archaic site (ca. 5000-4500 B.P.) from Ontario, this paper seeks to examine and compare the strategies for purposely damaging artifacts, with focus placed on gaining insight into motivations for breakage. Through the refitting of artifact fragments it is possible to identify when breakage was intentional and implemented for purposes beyond subsistence...


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...

Human-Animal Interactions at the start of the Middle Holocene: New Evidence from Pit Deposits in Northeast Florida (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Nicole Cerimele.

Northern Florida has provided some of the oldest evidence of riverine subsistence in the lower southeastern United States, redefining our understanding of how these communities interacted with animals. Previously, these data were restricted to bioarchaeological analyses of mortuary pond assemblages, such as the Windover site. Recent testing at Silver Glen Springs, along the St. Johns River, has uncovered direct evidence of animal exploitation that increases our knowledge of subsistence patterns...


Manasota Key Offshore: A Prehistoric Cemetery in the Gulf of Mexico (2018)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Ryan M Duggins. Franklin H Price. Melissa R. Price. Ivor R Mollema. Neil N Puckett.

The likelihood for the existence of prehistoric sites on drowned landscapes of the continental shelf has been discussed for decades. However, the potentially devastating effects of marine transgression have sparked a debate about the types and characteristics of prehistoric sites that archaeologists expect to find offshore.  The Florida Bureau of Archaeological Research recently identified a prehistoric cemetery located in the coastal waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Investigations at the Manasota...

Raw Material Provisioning and Tool Rejuvenation Practices: Environmental Change and Technological Tensions in the Middle Archaic of the North Carolina Piedmont (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Paul Thacker.

Flaked stone artifact assemblages from stratified contexts in central North Carolina reveal a significant shift in lithic technological organization during the Middle Archaic period. Important changes in raw material provisioning, biface production strategies, resharpening techniques, and stone tool discard behaviors broadly correlate with regional environmental shifts attributed to the mid-Holocene Optimum. Technological and site organizational changes may arise out of an emerging strategy of...


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."


These are the pearls that were his eyes: interpretive frameworks for submerged Middle Archaic sites in the Big Bend of Florida and the Georgia Bight, U.S.A. (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Jessica Cook. Ervan Garrison.

Sedentary occupations and monumental architecture first appear during the Middle Archaic (8,000 BP to 5,000 BP) in Florida at sites where marine, estuarine, and riverine resources were exploited, spreading to the coast of Georgia by the Late Archaic, around 4,500 BP. However, the coastline did not reach its modern position until around 5,000 BP, leaving many sites submerged. Fieldwork was initiated in June of 2014 in order to relocate, excavate, and interpret Middle Archaic sites submerged in...
