Early Cultivation in China: Where and When (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Ofer Bar-Yosef.

For over 2.6 million years foragers did not demonstrate that cultivation was a way for obtaining food stability although occasional events may have escaped the archaeological records. Cultivation by hunter-gatherers across the continents (except for Australia) emerged during the Terminal Pleistocene and early Holocene as a response to limitation on mobility due essentially to competition among growing populations conceived archaeologically as "relative demographic pressure". The paper will...


Early Farming Communities in East Africa and the Horn: new zooarchaeological evidence from Mezber, northern Ethiopia (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Helina Woldekiros.

Animal herding formed a central component of pre-Aksumite (>800 B.C.E – 450 B.C.E) and Aksumite (450 B.C.E-800 C.E.) subsistence economies in the North Ethiopian and Eritrean highlands. Despite this, detailed understanding of animal utilization and diversity of species is lacking for this period. New data on species abundance and radiocarbon date from the site of Mezber in the North Ethiopian highland throws a new light on the earliest mixed farming communities in the Horn of Africa over the...


Engineering an Ecosystem of Resistance: Late Intermediate Period Farming in the South-Central Andes (A.D. 1100-1450) (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only BrieAnna Langlie.

In the 15th century, the Inca built the largest pre-colonial empire in the western hemisphere. In southern Peru near Lake Titicaca, an ethnic group known as the Colla violently resisted conquest by the Inca for several years. Because of their military prowess, the Inca named one quarter of their empire, Collasuyo, after this group. The Colla’s ability to resist Inca subjugation was facilitated by their decentralized economy evident in their construction and management of a new agricultural...

The evolution of farming, and the boom and bust of culture. (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Adrian Timpson. Katie Manning. Stephen Shennan. Enrico Crema.

Occam’s razor judges the success of any model by its ability to explain the evidence with the greatest simplicity. We present two powerful yet simple models; the first evaluates the transition from hunting and gathering to farming within an evolutionary framework, by considering farming as a phenotypic mutation under positive selection. This allows us to estimate the selection coefficient and map local times of first appearance and fixation. The second evaluates the appearance and eventual...

Increasing the resolution from climate change to weather events: understanding past land-use management on the Svalbarð estate, North East Iceland. (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Paul Adderley. James Woollett. Guðrún Gísladóttir. Uggi Ævarsson.

Climate change has commonly been invoked as the most major force in determining land-use in the Norse settlement of Iceland. Recently, climate studies in the North Atlantic have focused on regional-scale shifts in temperature, ice-cover, and storminess. In contrast, the post-settlement period is increasingly understood from excavation and analyses of the material culture associated with farming practices, as well as literature-based and geomorphological perspectives. While climate evidence...

Preliminary Report on Archeological Survey in the Apostle Islands (1979)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Robert J. Salzer.

Archaeological research was conducted in the Apostle Islands and on the extreme northern tip of the mainland Bayfield Peninsula during a fourteen-week period in the Fall of 1979 by students and staff of the Department of Anthropology of Beloit College. The research was coordinated around the structure of an archaeological field school which was under the direction of Robert J. Salzer, Associate Professor of Anthropology and Director of the Logan Museum of Anthropology. Site survey techniques...

Skuggi and Siglunes: Two Icelandic Settlement Sites (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Ramona Harrison.

This paper presents results from multidisciplinary investigations at two Icelandic sites from the same region: Skuggi and Siglunes. The small subsidiary farm at Skuggi was likely settled during the earliest stages of Icelandic colonization and was located on a steep mountain slope, about 150 m above the valley bottom. Ideas on its occupation history and causes of abandonment will be discussed, as well as the possibility that the decision to abandon the settlement was heavily influenced by...


Socio-Spatial Isomorphism and Ancient Farming Systems: Nominal versus Practical Tenure in the Basin of Mexico (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Christopher Morehart.

The recognition that similarities exist between the form of agricultural systems and the form of society is a fundamental archaeological contribution to the social sciences. This view of socio-spatial isomorphism is especially notable in research on irrigation. The spatial and temporal properties of water require particular forms of cooperation. Organizational configurations are contingent upon scale, integration, and number of users. In the Basin of Mexico during the Postclassic period, the...
