DOCUMENT Citation Only Shannon Freire.

This is an abstract from the "SAA 2019: General Sessions" session, at the 84th annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology. The Milwaukee County Poor Farm Cemetery is an umbrella term used to describe the four cemeteries that were used by Milwaukee County, WI from 1878 through 1974 for the burial of the indigent, unclaimed, institutionalized, and anatomized. The focus of this research is the twice-excavated Cemetery II, in use between 1882 and 1925. Approximately one-quarter of...

Strontium (Sr) Isotope Analysis and Provenance of Construction Wood at Wupatki Pueblo (NA 405), in Northern Arizona (2011)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Mark D. Elson. Michael H. Ort. Kirk C. Anderson.

Strontium (Sr) isotope analyses of construction wood from the prehistoric Wupatki Pueblo in northern Arizona was undertaken to identify the source of the wood, given that Wupatki is located 20-30 km north of areas where suitable high elevation pine and fir trees are found. Unfortunately, due to the presence of high levels of blown-in dust, the Sr analysis of potential wood source areas could not distinguish between them, negating this research. A secondary goal was to investigate the possibility...

Who’s Who? Investigating Historic Burials at Chavín de Huantar Peru Using Radiogenic Strontium Isotope (87Sr/86Sr) Analysis (2018)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Nicole Slovak. John Rick.

Since 2009, the Programa Arqueológico Chavín has unearthed a series of historic burials from the Monumento Arqueológico Chavín de Huántar. Although the identity of the deceased remains a mystery, initial archaeological and ethnographic evidence suggests that the individuals may be casualties of the War of the Pacific (1879-1883), perhaps even Chilean soldiers who met an unusual and unfortunate fate at the hands of Chavín’s residents. The current paper presents radiogenic strontium isotope...
