Analyzing Magdalenian social networks in their environmental context (2016)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Claudine Gravel-Miguel.

This research argues for a refocus of the study of prehistoric social networks that involves contextualizing the inter-site links often interpreted as indicators of social interactions between different groups. It focuses on the social networks created during the 3 sub-periods of the Magdalenian in the Cantabrian and Dordogne regions, and visible through similarities of portable art representations. It uses Species Distribution Modeling and Maximum Classification Likelihood on faunal presence...


Artifact Distributions, Interaction Networks, and Social Complexity: Middle Preclassic development at Cahal Pech from a small-world perspective (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Sherman Horn.

The temporal position of the Middle Preclassic (c. 900 – 350 B.C.), situated between the earliest permanent settlements and hierarchically organized Late Preclassic polities, makes it a critical period for understanding the development of complex societies in the Belize Valley and the Maya Lowlands. From 2004 – 2009, the Belize Valley Archaeological Project’s excavations produced a trove of information on the Middle Preclassic occupation beneath Plaza B in the epicenter of Cahal Pech....


Causes and Consequences of Pre- and Proto-historic Social Network Connectedness in Coastal Georgia (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Nicholas Triozzi. Anna Semon. Thomas Blaber.

This poster considers social networks derived from artifact assemblages and interment types from early-Irene and late-Irene and protohistoric mortuary contexts on the Georgia (USA) coast. Network analysis can be used to evaluate potential interactions between community members represented in mortuary contexts. The R statistical program is used to model social networks according to multiple parameters and generate statistical indices of network connectivity. I propose that these indices are a...

Chaco and Hopewell: Redefining Interaction Spheres through Multiscalar Network Approaches (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Barbara Mills. Alice Wright.

Chaco and Hopewell are two of the most well studied archaeological regions in North America. Although Chaco is often compared to Cahokia, comparison to Hopewell brings out important ways in which extensive regional connectivities were formed through the intersection of religious, political, and economic networks. Both societies show evidence of periodic, eventful monumental construction; spatial connectivity through roads/causeways; long-distance procurement of materials; production and...

Connection and Competition: some early insights gained from petrographic studies of New Caledonian Lapita pottery (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Scarlett Chiu. David Killick. William Dickinson. Christophe Sand.

In this paper we will present the newest results gained from both petrographic and chemical compositional analyses of New Caledonian Lapita pottery samples, to address issues concerning long-distance connections among several Lapita communities, and competition that might have happened between Northern and Southern Lapita communities. We have been able to develop an effective way of identifying pottery production areas within New Caledonia, and our results suggest that there were possible social...

Diaspora and social networks in a WWII Japanese American Incarceration Center (2018)
DOCUMENT Citation Only April Kamp-Whittaker.

The rich documentary record available to historical archaeologists creates a unique opportunity to recreate social networks in past communities. Social network data can demonstrate how communities and individuals responded to changes to existing social structures, such as those caused by diaspora. Japanese American internment represents a forced diaspora as incarceration altered existing social structures and networks. Data from the Amache Internment center in Southeastern Colorado are used to...


Evaluating Structural Change in Neolithic Economies: Social Network Analysis of Utilitarian Pottery Exchange in the Jianghan Plain (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Camilla Sturm.

The emergence of walled town settlements of the late Neolithic middle Yangzi River region are widely associated with the development of a complex form of social organization. While significant attention has focused on the structure and organization of individual walled settlements, little is known about the nature of social and economic interactions between communities. To address this issue, I combined geochemical analysis of pottery with formal social network methods to investigate changes in...


Frontier Networks Archaeological Project - Culture Contact in Mississippian west-Central Illinois
PROJECT Uploaded by: Andrew Upton

For thousands of years, demographic upheaval and migration have led to social settings where distinct human populations coexist. Communities pursue various types of interaction in these multiethnic contexts, ranging from the maintenance of ethnic distinctions through social and political pluralism to the adoption of traits as part of processes of ethnogenesis. This project seeks to examine changes in networks of social interaction, identity, and exchange following a migration process in a...

Hidden Revolutions: Re-examining Transitions in the American Southwest from an Anarchist and Network Perspective (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Lewis Borck.

Globally, archaeologists often talk about cultural change as a dynamic, directional process that leads toward either failure (collapse, reorganization, abandonment, and "stability") or state level societies. This evokes a unilinear evolutionary framework that most admit is flawed. But what if state level societies were not the "pinnacle" of human civilization? What if states represent societal failure instead? From this position, often glossed over historic periods may stand out as lynchpins...

Interactions Across the Landscape: Interpreting Social Relationships within Montpelier’s Black Community (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Matthew C Greer.

Social relationships structure daily life in a variety of ways.  However, when considering the social world that existed inside slave quarters across Virginia, archaeologists have not been able to come to a consensus on how to approach the study of social networks; with some researchers focusing on social standing, seen most often through the role of material wealth to create connections and others focusing on how interactions can be meaningfully interpreted from the archaeological record.  This...


Lithic technological organization and social networks during the LGM in Southwestern Iberia (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Joao Cascalheira. Nuno Bicho.

Clusters of sites in particular regions of Southwestern Europe seem to reveal that the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM) settlement patterns form a scenario of relatively isolated refugia that may have contracted and expanded their cultural influence as climate fluctuated. Similarities between each of these niches have been long argued, based on the distribution of specific types of lithic weaponry. This paper will focus on a study of lithic technological organization during the LGM in Southwestern...


Mill Communities and Social Networks in the Early-Modern Finland (2018)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Noora Hemminki. Marika Hyttinen. Timo Ylimaunu.

In the 17th and 18th centuries several proto-industrial mills were established in the present day Finland, at that time under rule of Swedish kingdom. Around the mills grew up close-knit communities, consisting of mill workers and their families, which were controlled and ruled by the mill owners. This poster discusses two divergent Finnish early industrial communities, Pikisaari pitch mill community in the town of Oulu and Östermyra ironworks community in southern Ostrobothnia. We will compare...


"Mind the Gap": Social Networks and Chaco Migration Scenarios (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Barbara Mills. Matthew Peeples. Jeffery Clark. Leslie Aragon. Thomas Windes.

Migration plays an important role in archaeologists’ reconstructions of the origins and development of Chaco society. Scenarios include migration from the northern San Juan to Chaco Canyon and other southern San Juan settlements in the 9th-10th centuries; from Chaco to the central San Juan in the 11th-12th centuries; and from the central San Juan to Chaco Canyon in the 12th century. To evaluate possible migration pathways we compiled a database of 1.8 million ceramics from 340 Chacoan great...
