This monograph is a revision of Barbara Stark's dissertation. It addresses primarily excavations on Patarata Island, located in the mangrove swamp at the mouth of the Papaloapan River, Veracruz, Mexico. It was published in 1977 but is out of print. (Prehistoric Ecology at Patarata 52, Veracruz, Mexico: Adaptation to the Mangrove Swamp. Vanderbilt University Publications in Anthropology 18.)
The monograph analyzes pottery from Patarata 52, Veracruz, Mexico. (1989 Patarata Pottery: Classic Period Ceramics of the South-central Gulf Coast, Veracruz, Mexico. Anthropological Papers 51. University of Arizona Press, Tucson.)
The monograph analyzes residential excavations in the Mixtequilla area of Veracruz, Mexico. (2001 Classic Period Mixtequilla, Veracruz, Mexico: Diachronic Inferences from Residential Investigations, ed. by B.L. Stark. Institute for Mesoamerican Studies, Monograph 12, The University at Albany, N.Y. )
En México, los dos primeros siglos de la Colonia española siguen sin considerarse suficientemente en la investigación arqueológica. Los proyectos se enfocan principalmente en estudiar la época prehispánica y posteriormente las haciendas (principalmente después del siglo 18), creando un verdadero hiato de conocimiento de la cultura material y de la arquitectura de los siglos 16 y 17. Además, esta asimetría es todavía más evidente en las zonas rurales. Esa situación se explica tanto por la...
Examination of sediments from several reservoirs at the Preclassic site of Yaxnohkah Campeche, Mexico reveals less that stellar pollen preservation, but still useful botanical data. Thus far, pollen grains show varying degrees of degradation, requiring the use of exacting extraction methods. Cultigens and economic taxa are abundant in the samples demonstrating that we are sampling in the right place, but cyclic wetting and drying has resulted in the loss of fragile taxa, skewing the botanical...
A program of augering residential mounds preceeded the selection of mounds for residential test excavations. These pdf files have the data forms and associated notes related to the auger testing, done in 1987.
Residential mound excavations during 1987 were recorded with forms, and artifacts from the excavations were recorded on forms.
These are pdf files of the original survey feature/collection forms. Each survey feature was recorded on a form and assigned a unique number, and, if the feature was collected, that number pertains to the surface collection. Some features have more than one collection, in which case additional feature/collection numbers were assigned. Rarely numbers were subsequently de-assigned, and might then be assigned to a different feature/collection later, but occasionally numbers were not used...
These pdf files show forms for fields where survey was conducted and the locations of features/collections within the field, along with vegetation and other observations. These files are only available with special permission because those from seasons when global positioning equipment was used have UTM coordinates. Those from survey using aerial mosaics sometimes show roads or towns identifiable on maps.
These laboratory forms record figurine classifications.
These pdfs contain the original laboratory coding forms for a variety of miscellaneous artifacts, such as spindle whorls, incensarios, colanders,clay balls, and other unusual ceramic forms. Artifacts related to ceramic production are included.
Obsidian coding forms from the PALM regional survey and associated notes. The obsidian coding was directed by Lynette Heller.
These archival forms recorded pottery types and attributes for survey collections. Some show updates or corrections when pottery was reexamined, but a few updates were made directly on electronic database or excel files.
Rio Blanco irrigation district maps were scanned for use in GIS programs for the Proyecto Arqueologico La Mixtequilla. Not all the irrigation district maps were copied by xerox for this endeavor. There are additional maps held by the irrigation district offices. The irrigation district is part of the Comision del Papaloapan.
This file contains data on ceramic balls (usually whole or major part) collected during survey. Data from clay balls observed but not collected have not yet been added to the file. These artifacts are thought to have been used in construction.
This file contains information on perforated and non-perforated ceramic disks from the PALM project survey and excavation.
This file contains information about ceramic wheels (for wheeled "toys") from PALM survey.
This file lists and defines the attributes used by AJ Vonarx in coding obsidian and chert bifacial tools from PALM survey. This file is only partially complete at the time of upload.
This dataset records information about chert artifacts recovered during PALM 1 (1984-1989).
This file contains information on chert artifacts recovered during PALM 2 survey (1998-2002).
A.J. Vonarx recorded attributes of chert bifacial artifacts, apparently all are projectile points.
This file contains chert tool attributes recorded by A.J. Vonarx for her University of Arizona Master's thesis research.
Aerial mosaics of the lower Papaloapan basin were created for the Comision del Papaloapan by the Cia. Mexicana de Aerofoto, which has since gone out of business. Their negatives and any remaining prints appear to have been lost, or at least are in an unknown location. Prints were purchased covering the western lower Papaloapan area and used in archaeological survey 1986-1988. Subsequently, survey was conducted with Irrigation District maps or GPS. These scans function as archival records of...
Fin del Mundo is a Clovis site located in the north-central portion of the state of Sonora, northwestern Mexico. The site comprises multiple localities including a buried kill of two gomphotheres (cuvieronius sp.), a Clovis camp and raw material procurement areas. The Clovis lithic component at the site consists of Clovis points, Clovis point preforms, bifaces, unifacial tools and a blade industry. The tool types suggest that Fin del Mundo was occupied for a long time span, possibly during...
The Clovis Lithic Technology at El Fin del Mundo: Early Paleoindian Mobility and Land Use Patterns in North-Central Sonora, Mexico (2017)
Clovis populations are thought to have been wide ranging, highly mobile foragers, as reflected in stone tool raw material procurement patterns and technological features of associated lithic assemblages. Intense utilization of high quality non-local cryptocrystalline raw materials, heavy stone tool refurbishing and repair strategies, and a lithic industry based on bifacial reduction are main features of the Clovis lithic technological organization suggestive of high mobility. In north-central...
