Bioarchaeological Approaches to Kinship and Social Organization at Paquimé (2017)

Citation DOCUMENT [ID: 432064] Kyle Waller. Adrianne Offenbecker.

Variation in cranial and dental non-metric traits provides a unique method for investigating prehistoric biological variability at Paquimé, Chihuahua, Mexico. Previous biodistance analyses have demonstrated patterns of long-distance gene flow with both Southwestern and frontier Mesoamerican groups, while stable isotope analyses have suggested a pattern of immigration into the site. The primary goal of this study is to determine what the pattern of biological variability tells us about social...


Burial and kinship during the St. Johns: A Bioarchaeological study of the Ross Hammock site (2016)

Citation DOCUMENT [ID: 405111] Ian Pawn.

Many aspects of St. Johns lifeways have been studied, but kinship, the most fundamental unit of human organization, has rarely been addressed beyond identifying vaguely defined "lineages" or "kin groups". Some have argued that burial mounds represent kin groups, and this paper investigates St. Johns period kinship systems using the biological affinity of individuals from Ross Hammock Mound, a burial mound at Canaveral National Seashore in Florida. Biological distances between individuals are...


Ceramic Sociology Revisited: Ceramic Design Analysis in the Sand Canyon Locality (2017)

Citation DOCUMENT [ID: 429936] Samantha Linford.

Tracing complicated social links such as kinship through the material record has fallen in and out of favor in anthropological discourse. The ceramic sociologists of the 1960s and 1970s (Hill 1966; Longacre 1970) focused on tracking kinship through spatial patterning of ceramic designs among Pueblo sites in the American Southwest. The concept of ceramic sociology sparked many critiques within archaeology (Allen and Richardson 1971). These critiques were tied to a need for better understanding of...


The Coming of Kings in the Belize River Valley (2015)

Citation DOCUMENT [ID: 396138] M. Kathryn Brown. Jason Yaeger.

Twenty five years have passed since Linda Schele and David Friedel presented their thoughts on the origins and establishment of the institution of kingship in their book "A Forest of Kings." Their historical reconstruction of Cerros illustrates the steps taken by early rulers to establish and institutionalize a hierarchical social system. Through the empirical data from Cerros, they artfully illuminate how the construction and display of symbols of royal power on monumental buildings coupled...

Houses, Territory, and Tenure: An Archaeological Case Study of Territoriality in the Salish Sea (2017)

Citation DOCUMENT [ID: 430258] Chris Springer.

The multi-family, above-ground, post-and-beam plankhouse looms large in our understanding of ancestral Coast Salish households that populated the coastal regions of southwestern British Columbia and northwestern Washington State. In addition to their practical role as shelters, plankhouses were both social fields of daily practice and ceremonialism, and imposing physical structures that communicated presence and the territorial and tenurial interests of the household. In this presentation, I...

Identity, ritual, and violence in the Epiclassic Basin of Mexico (2016)

Citation DOCUMENT [ID: 404856] Sofia Pacheco-Fores. Christopher Morehart.

The practice of human sacrifice has a remarkable time depth within Mesoamerica. However, it is often misunderstood as a social practice. In this project, I investigate an Epiclassic (600-900 CE) shrine site in the northern Basin of Mexico, where over 150 male, human crania showing evidence of decapitation were unearthed. The Epiclassic period in the Basin of Mexico was a period of political fragmentation, migration, and warfare. I explore the identities of the individuals using a combination of...

On the Edge of the New World: Colonizing the Bahamas (2017)

Citation DOCUMENT [ID: 430798] William Keegan.

The Bahama archipelago is the last place colonized in the New World, and the first encountered by Europeans. Previous efforts to explain the arrival of humans followed the stepping-stone model of expansion that began in the Orinoco River drainage of lowland Venezuela. Communities island-hopped through the Lesser Antilles, expanded into the Greater Antilles, and continued their northward migration through the southern Bahamas after crossing the last open water gap between Hispaniola and the Turks...

A Roman "House"?: A New Model for Understanding the Origins of the Roman Gens (2017)

Citation DOCUMENT [ID: 428817] Matthew Naglak. Parrish Wright.

Debate concerning the development and origins of the Roman kinship group known as the gens has a long and contentious history. Theses questions, however, necessarily move beyond the primary textual evidence, the standard resource for such studies. Different heuristic models must be utilized to take advantage of all available data, whether it be textual, archaeological, or via ethnographic comparison. I propose the concept of a "house society" as developed by Lévi-Strauss and taken up by numerous...
