Cultural Evolution in Archaeology (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Peter Richerson.

Models of cultural evolution aim at a process level understanding of cultural change and gene-culture coevolution. The micro level foundations of these models can be tested in the lab and field on living populations and, in favorable circumstances, with fine-grained archaeological data. Macro scale problems can only be studied by fitting models to historical and archaeological data that can resolve patterns on time scales of a century or more. Progress in two areas in particular are contributing...

Dynastic traditions and patterns of ritual variation in Classic Maya writing (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Jessica Munson. Matthew Looper. Yuriy Polyukhovych. Jonathan Scholnick. Martha Macri.

Inscriptions found on Classic Maya monuments largely document important historical events and record the political achievements of named royal individuals. Previous onomastic studies of these king lists identify striking patterns in naming conventions which may mark ethnic boundaries as well as signal important attributes or transitions in the life history of Classic Maya rulers. This study investigates the hypothesis that divergent dynastic traditions existed during the Classic period based...

Investigating Drivers of Technological Richness among Contact-Period Western North American Farmers (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Briggs Buchanan. Mark Collard. Michael O'Brien.

Building on several previous studies we investigate the factors that influence technological richness in nonindustrial farming groups. A number of studies have shown that the factors that influence technological richness and complexity in hunter-gatherer groups differ from the factors that influence farming populations. Specifically, environmental risk is the primary driver in hunter-gatherer technological richness and complexity, whereas population size seems to be the main driver for farmers....

Measuring Lithic Complexity from the Lower Paleolithic through the Late Holocene (2019)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Jonathan Paige. Deanna Dytchkowskyj. Charles Perreault.

This is an abstract from the "The Extended Evolutionary Synthesis and Human Origins: Archaeological Perspectives" session, at the 84th annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology. The extended evolutionary synthesis emphasizes the importance of understanding how the interaction of biological and cultural inheritance systems have shaped human evolution. Within the animal kingdom, modern humans possess a unique ability to transmit and maintain complex cultural traditions (Tennie et...

Reading the chisel’s chippings: Changing religious attitudes about death and eighteenth-century New England gravestones (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Jonathan Scholnick. Ryan Nichols.

The eighteenth century was a dynamic period of religious change, particularly in New England, as the Calvinistic influence of the Puritan settlers waned and new denominations emerged. This was also a time of rapidly changing funerary ritual, when the inscriptions on grave markers shifted from emphases on marking the remains of the decedent to commemorating them, and gravestone motifs became more diverse. This study examines the ways that religious attitudes towards death change, using a database...
