Access, Accumulation, and Action: The Relationship between Architectural and Depositional Patterns at Homol’ovi I (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Samantha Fladd.

Throughout its occupation, Homol’ovi I, a Pueblo IV site in northeastern Arizona, underwent continuous alteration reflecting the movement of groups both internally and externally. The constant attention to rebuilding, redirecting, and resurfacing rooms and the meticulous patterning of depositional material within structures indicate a continued endeavor to reform the built environment to better reflect the identities, needs, and memories of the current residents. In order to analyze the...

Daily life and ritual at Yanshi Shangcheng: Subterranean deposition and the puzzle of blended deposits (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Katrinka Reinhart.

At the early Bronze Age city of Yanshi Shangcheng (Henan, China), an important aspect of the lifeways of residents was the practice of depositing various sorts of materials underground. Pottery, human and animal bodies, implements, ornaments and other materials were deposited in pits, wells, ditches, and graves. These "depositional practices" resulted in a bounty for future archaeologists. However, deposition has been undertheorized in Chinese archaeology. Depositional features are often...

A Depositional Analysis of Pit Features at the Pocumtuck Fort (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Katherine Dillon.

Subsurface features are a basic unit of archaeological analysis, yet there is surprising little standardization in their identification, classification and analysis. In the Northeastern region of the United States most archaeologists rely on simplistic pit feature typologies. I argue that studying features by deposit rather than as whole units allows for a clearer understanding of separate cultural depositions as indexes of specific past practices. The pit feature assemblage at Area D (19FR415),...

A Room Remembered: Room Closure through Material Deposition at Homol’ovi I (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Samantha Fladd.

Material deposition involves a range of social practices that enact negotiations of identity and interrelationships between people and spaces. Through the deliberate accumulation of artifacts and sediment in certain locations, these negotiations are materialized in the archaeological record. The reciprocal creation and expression of the meaning of spaces and objects can begin to be understood by analyzing the materials deposited in rooms post-occupationally. In this poster, I examine the ways...
