The Deep History of a Modern Phenomenon: An Archaeological Perspective on Corporate Agriculture in Northwest Ohio (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Maura Johnson. Robert Chidester.

Yard signs proclaiming, "Family Farms Not Factory Farms!" are a common site along rural highways in the Midwest.

POLLEN AND PHYTOLITH ANALYSIS FOR SITES 33LE396 AND 33LE405, OHIO (2003)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Linda Scott Cummings. Thomas E. Moutoux.

Stratigraphic samples were examined for both pollen and phytoliths from two archaeological sites (33Le396 and 33Le405) to identify vegetation and changes in vegetation that can provide information concerning paleoenvironmental conditions. Features at site 33Le405 yielded radiocarbon ages indicating Early to Late Woodland occupations, whereas site 33Le396 appears to have been occupied during the Middle Woodland. Feature samples were examined for pollen and phytoliths from each of these site...
