A Depositional Analysis of Pit Features at the Pocumtuck Fort (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Katherine Dillon.

Subsurface features are a basic unit of archaeological analysis, yet there is surprising little standardization in their identification, classification and analysis. In the Northeastern region of the United States most archaeologists rely on simplistic pit feature typologies. I argue that studying features by deposit rather than as whole units allows for a clearer understanding of separate cultural depositions as indexes of specific past practices. The pit feature assemblage at Area D (19FR415),...


Determination of Use-Wear Evidence on Quartzite Tools: Experimental and Archaeological Studies (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Hong Chen. Jiying Liu. Ya-Mei Hou. Huiru Lian.

Use-wear analysis has become an essential method for functional study of archaeological lithic artifacts. Quartzite is one of the main raw materials for lithic tools during Paleolithic period in many sites in the world. However, use-wear studies on quartzite tools are poorly developed due to its poor quality and rough surface. In this paper, the objective is to provide some reference data of determination of use-wear evidence, including both of the experimental and archaeological studies. In...


Digital documentation for many purposes. The Barcode 6 boat as a case study. (2013)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Tori Falck.

In 2007 The Norwegian Maritime Museum changed their method of documenting archaeological ship finds to 3D contact digitising using FARO-arm and Rhino software. In 2008 13 ship finds were uncovered at the so called Barcode site in the old harbour of Oslo. In this paper the focus will be on one of these boats, namely the Barcode 6. This boat find (AD 1595) is particularly suitable for generating a discussion around methodological aspects of digital documentation in that it has undergone many...


Early Pueblo Pit Structure Architectural Practice in the Southwest Cibola Region (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Steven Gilbert. Kye Miller.

Researchers studying architecture in the southwest Cibola region have generally focused on Pueblo II to Pueblo IV aggregated above-ground masonry pueblos. Although these structures provide abundant information about past lifeways, little research has been conducted on pit structure architecture in this region. As such, there is much to be learned from earlier structures dating to the Basketmaker and early Pueblo periods in the southwest Cibola. By characterizing early architectural practice in...

Midden Accumulation Rates in Prince Rupert Harbour: New Applications for Percussion Coring (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Andrew Martindale. Kenneth Ames. Bryn Letham. Kevan Edinborough. Sarah Wilson.

The monumentality of the anthropogenic landscape of the Prince Rupert Harbour region on north coastal British Columbia has long been recognized for the number, density, and size of the shell midden terraces containing villages dating to the last 5000 years. The scale of the region’s archaeological record makes regional assessments of the mode and tempo of shell-bearing site construction difficult. We report on a program of regional and site-specific percussion coring combined with 14C dating to...

Taking High Tech Back to Basics: GIS and the Three Dimensions of Archaeology (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Kit Wesler.

In many ways, the Willey and Phillips’s (1958) Method and Theory in American Archaeology still sets the parameters of how we conceptualize the units of North American archaeological classification. The authors defined three types of units, in theory independently based on time, space, and material content. Integrative units juggled the three dimensions to create local sequences, which then built into larger and larger constructs. Wide use of various dating mechanisms and detailed studies of...

Wonderful Things: Using Legacy Archaeological Collections for Research (2018)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Julia King.

How does one go about using legacy archaeological collections – or any archaeological collection, for that matter – for research? The prospect can be daunting, especially if you are staring down dozens of dusty boxes on shelves. This paper offers direction for studying even the most untamed collection by understanding it as a type of secondary data – lessons learned while working with legacy collections from the Potomac and Rappahannock river valleys in Maryland and Virginia. Secondary data, a...
