Archaeobotanical Chenopodium Seeds from across Central Asia (2017)

Citation DOCUMENT Natalia Ryabogina. Robert Spengler.

Plants in the Chenopodium genus have attracted human interest around the globe for millennia; they have been used for grain and vegetable food as well as being a key forage plant for herd animals. Historically, several wild species have been economically significant across Eurasia, notably in Central Asia, and the genus has been domesticated in various parts of the world, including East Asia. Wild Chenopodium seeds are the dominant category of archaeobotanical remains found in the vast majority...

Chenopod data in two countries of South America: Advances in knowledge about the use of Chenopodium in Argentina and Chile from Early Holocene (9000-11000 BP) to Historical Times (250 BP). (2017)

Citation DOCUMENT María Laura López. María Teresa Planella.

Argentina and Chile are the most austral American countries where Chenopodium species are recovered in several archaeological contexts. In both countries from the north to central and south, various issues are addressed from these findings such as hunter-gatherers subsistence strategies and chenopod grain morphological changes. Multi-proxy methods are used based on pollen, macro and micro botanical remains analyses, and isotopic data. However scarce botanical evidence has carried an uneven depth...

Dolores Archaeological Program Technical Reports, DAP-047: Botanical Studies - 1979 (1982)

DOCUMENT Robert A. Bye.

During 1979, the Environmental Studies Group of the Dolores Archaeological Program developed a research design which emphasized the development and testing of specific vegetation models based on archaeological and modern botanical data. In order to provide a valid basis for such model building and testing, and to provide a basis for comparison between modern and prehistoric vegetation patterns, a reconnaissance survey of the project area, in part using the releve technique, was undertaken. Data...

Environmental Constraints and Plant Food Intensification in the Sacramento Valley (2015)

Citation DOCUMENT Eric Wohlgemuth.

The Sacramento Valley bottom is a rich environment for faunal resources, notably fish, but lacks staple nut crops found elsewhere in interior central California. The absence of key nut resources appears to be the key factor in intensified production of geophytes and the early intensification of small seeds, especially Chenopodium spp. These features are absent in other regions in the rich archaeobotanical record of central California. SAA 2015 abstracts made available in tDAR courtesy of the...


Fire-cracked Rock Use and Reuse in the Hueco Bolson, Fort Bliss, Texas (1997)

DOCUMENT Cynthia L. Tennis. Johanna M. Hunziker. Jeff D. Leach.

The Center for Archaeological Research of The University of Texas at San Antonio conducted an analysis of 29,058 pieces of fire-cracked rock and burned caliche selected from a sample of hundreds of features tested as part of the Hueco Mountain Archaeological Project at Fort Bliss, Texas. Feature and non-feature material included in this analysis were collected from site FB 13237 located on the proximal fan, FB 12719 within the basin area, and FB 12412 situated in the transitional zone between...


From Quelites to Crop Indices: Thinking Through Maya Chenopods (2017)

Citation DOCUMENT David Goldstein. Jon Hageman.

While chenopod cultivation has been documented extensively in North and South America, evidence for similar practices in the Maya area is lacking. Macrobotanical evidence of Chenopodium recovered from pre-Hispanic Maya archaeological sites is limited to a few seeds. In contrast, the palynological record suggests widespread tolerance across the entirety of the Maya area, if not intensive management or even cultivation of Cheno-am genera in some contexts. It is likely that chenopods are an...


Harvesting, Management, and Possible Cultivation of Chenopods (Chenopodium spp.) in the North American Southwest (2017)

Citation DOCUMENT Gayle J. Fritz. Karen R. Adams.

Chenopodium seeds are ubiquitous in archaeobotanical samples from sites across the U.S. Southwest, commonly interpreted as representing the harvest of wild populations or weedy plants that were encouraged to grow in garden plots and agricultural fields. Up to 75% of projects from various SW U.S. regions contained Chenopodium, and/or Amaranthus, and/or Cheno-am seeds. Archaeobotanists differ in how they recognize and report these seeds. At least 22 wild species of Chenopodium are native to one or...


Intensive Use of Wild Chenopodium by Central California Hunter Gatherers (2017)

Citation DOCUMENT Eric Wohlgemuth. Maria C. Bruno.

Three decades of California paleoethnobotany have shown that Chenopodium is the most common small seed found in central California archaeological sites. Chenopodium is concentrated in sedentary residential communities in lowland areas, where historical population densities rivaled or exceeded those found elsewhere in the world. The most intensive use known for Chenopodium is from wetland areas of the Sacramento and Santa Clara valleys. Despite thousands of years as the pre-eminent small-seeded...
