Evidence of Heirlooming at Moundville (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Erin Phillips.

This paper examines evidence of heirlooming at Moundville, a major Mississippian center located in west central Alabama. This evidence was discovered while analyzing pottery engraved in Moundville's Hemphill style. The Hemphill Style (ca. AD 1325-1450) is Moundville's local representational art style including such motifs as winged serpents, raptors, crested birds, paired tails, hand and eye designs, scalps, skulls, and forearm bones.


Exploring regionality: a chaîne opératoire approach to ‘style’ in the rock art of the Eastern Cape Province, South Africa (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Ghilraen Laue.

Regional differences in southern African hunter-gatherer rock art have long been noted, but methods towards a rigorous definition of these regions have not been developed. Addressing a recent call for the use of style in defining rock art regions I propose a chaîne opératoire approach. Rather than focusing only on the finished product I will consider multiple factors in the production and consumption of rock art images. Instead of relying on vague notions of style, the component parts and...


Interaction through time: diachronical composition of rockart panels in Central Brazil (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Andrei Isnardis.

The Central Brazil has a large number of rock art sites, with remarkable stylistic variability. Trying to understand such variability, the Brazilian archaeologists proposed chrono-stylistic units to analyse the stylistic changes in diferent regions. In some specific areas, the studies of stylistic changes led us to perceveing another dimension of that variability: the diachronical interactions. This presentation tries to highlight specific behavior of new paintings, when they reoccupy rock walls...

The Materiality of Affluence and Taste in Trump Tower (2018)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Paul R. Mullins. Timo Ylimaunu.

This paper examines Donald Trump’s New York City apartment as a populist performance of affluence that simultaneously justifies ostentatious shows of wealth and defends idiosyncratic individual taste. Rather than reduce the grandiose penthouse simply to a transgression of "good taste," this paper examines a distinctive notion of material wealth that embraces pretentious and idiosyncratic expressions of style and affluence. In a conservative world that has often been characterized by stylistic...


Peoples and Crafts in Period IVB at Hasanlu, Iran
PROJECT Uploaded by: Leigh Anne Ellison

The University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology has had a long-standing interest in the archaeology of Iran. In 1956, Robert H. Dyson, Jr., began excavations south of Lake Urmia at the large mounded site of Hasanlu. Although the results of these excavations await final publication, the Hasanlu Special Studies series—of which this monograph is the fourth volume—describes and analyzes specific aspects of technology, style, and iconography. This volume describes a group of...

Style, Memory, and the Production of History: Aztec Black-on-Orange Pottery in Xaltocan, Mexico (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Kristin De Lucia.

This paper will explore shifting patterns in ceramic consumption and stylistic design during the Postclassic period (AD 900-1350) at the site of Xaltocan in the Basin of Mexico. Xaltocan is the only site in the northern Basin of Mexico associated with a large percentage of early Black-on-Orange pottery. This same pottery is rare at contemporaneous sites located a few kilometers away. Because Black-on-Orange ceramics were used by elites and commoners alike, and also cross-cut various ethnic and...


Temporal and Spatial Variability in Roosevelt Red Ware Painted Decoration (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Patrick Lyons. Deborah Huntley.

Recent research in the southern US Southwest has revealed patterns useful in refining ceramic chronology and investigating communities of practice among 14th and 15th century potters producing Roosevelt Red Ware (Salado polychromes). Analyses of whole and partially reconstructible vessels recovered from stratified contexts in the San Pedro Valley of southeastern Arizona confirm the Roosevelt Red Ware stylistic seriation presented by Patricia Crown in 1994. Combining these results with recent...


Trend and tradition in South Appalachian carved paddle stamps (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Karen Smith. Vernon J. Knight, Jr.. Julie G. Markin. Keith Stephenson.

The nature of Swift Creek design style has been a research focus of the lead authors for a number of years. In this poster, we broaden the discussion to include the full range of carved paddles, originally identified by W. H. Holmes as integral to the South Appalachian pottery tradition. Within the context of the stylistic principles of Swift Creek, as previously defined, we chart paddle stamping from its earliest beginnings ca 600 BC to the ethnographic present. Our concerns include...


UNDERSTANDING VARIATION: STYLISTIC ETHNOGRAPHIC ANALYSIS OF ROCK ART FROM THE MAKGABENG PLATEAU, LIMPOPO PROVINCE, SOUTH AFRICA (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Lourenco Pinto.

The use of style is in its infancy in southern African rock art studies with work on style originating with broad generalisations which linked modes of subsistence, material culture and lifeways to style. Recent studies have focused on regional art traditions. The author presents a research case study that advocated for the use of style as praxis. Looking at specific depictions of cross-cultural motifs from the Makgabeng plateau, South Africa, this paper explores the intricate spatio-temporal...

Variation and Similarity in Obsidian Tool Styles and Technologies at the Zaragoza-Oyameles Source Area, Puebla, Mexico (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only J. Gregory Smith. Charles L. F. Knight.

The nature and degree of interaction between the Classic period centers of Teotihuacan and Cantona is investigated through two types of obsidian artifacts that characterize Early to Late Classic period obsidian use in the central-east highlands of Mexico: prismatic blades and bifacial dart points. At the Zaragoza-Oyameles source area in eastern Puebla, Mexico the recovery of dart point preforms next to obsidian quarries, combined with chemical analysis indicates that these points were crafted at...


Visually Linking the Ritual and the Quotidian at Tiwanaku, AD 500-1100 (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Jonah Augustine.

In this paper, I examine ceramic vessels, primarily serving wares, from the site of Tiwanaku, the preeminent city in the Central Andes between AD 500 and 1100, in order to examine the political effects of visual media in the ancient Andes. The paper’s empirical focal point is a comparison of ceramics recovered from the monumental core and from a residential sector at Tiwanaku. My analysis is based on both attribute and iconographic data I collected during fieldwork that sought to examine the...
