Analysis of Sorting Errors of Animal Remains from Shell Middens: Lessons Learned from the Čḯxwicən Project (2018)

Citation DOCUMENT

Zooarchaeologists routinely analyze assemblages that were initially sorted into major animal type (birds, mammals, fish, invertebrates) by students or lab technicians with little experience in zooarchaeology. Sorting errors are likely made, which affect taxonomic representation and understanding of human-animal relationships. Recent study of the immense faunal assemblage (over 500,000 NSP) from Čḯxwicən, a 2800-year-old Lower Elwha Klallam village located on the coast of Washington (USA), allows...


Application of Photogrammetric Methods to Archaeological Site Documentation: Archaeological and Experimental Case Studies (2017)

Citation DOCUMENT

Photogrammetry is a powerful tool using images to create three-dimensional (3D) models of objects and landscapes. Advances in software and personal computing have made photogrammetry an important instrument for the documentation of archaeological sites. Despite this, using photogrammetry to understand spatial data within archaeological sites is uncommon. Recording spatial data on sites is usually done by hand-measuring artifacts within a grid or by using a total station for more accurate mapping...


Archaeological Considerations in the Study of the Anthropocene (2016)

Citation DOCUMENT

The Anthropocene epoch, garnering the interest of geologists and environmental scientists for the past decade, has now entered the archaeological lexicon. As in other disciplines, questions remain about what Anthropocene means and when it began, as well as how it differs from the Holocene. This presentation explores some of these issues and offers a ground-up approach by which conventional approaches in archaeology might be adapted to a reassessment of the human experience and the role of...

Background to New Methods in Zooarchaeology: Identifying, Storing, and Recording Faunal Collections that will be Used by other Researchers (2016)

Citation DOCUMENT

In the past 15 years, we have seen significant methodological developments in zooarchaeology, including the uses of isotopic studies, aDNA, and geometric morphometrics. However, all of these methods depend on careful identification of animal bone materials and the preservation of their archaeological and stratigraphic context. This paper discusses basic methods of identifying, recording, archiving, and storing zooarchaeological collections in ways that will make them amenable to research by...


Best Practices for 3D Recordation and Visualization of Historical Archaeological Sites (2018)

Citation DOCUMENT

The use of 3D recordation and visualization techniques on archaeological sites has expanded dramatically in recent years. In response to the popularity of these technologies, European practitioners have developed the London Charter for the Computer-Based Visualization of Cultural Heritage as a foundation for best practices. This paper discusses the London Charter and how it may be applicable to American Historical Archaeology. Issues include appropriate technology selection, documenting sources...


Biomolecular Archaeology: New Insights from the Past (2017)

Citation DOCUMENT

The field of biomolecular anthropology has been transformed in recent years by new technological and methodological approaches, including DNA, protein and small molecule characterization. At the Laboratories of Molecular Anthropology and Microbiome Research (LMAMR) at the University of Oklahoma, we have successfully expanded these approaches to study past populations, for example through the investigation of: 1) ancient animal use, translocations, and domestication, 2) human dietary adaptations,...

Coal Camps in the Rock Springs Uplift, Wyoming: Effective Partnering between Archaeologists, State Agencies and Consulting Engineers (2018)

Citation DOCUMENT

Wyoming's Abandoned Mine Land Division (AML) has been funding cultural resource investigations at late nineteenth and early twentieth century coal fields in the Rock Springs Uplift since the early 1980s and that work continues up to the present.  A program that began primarily as the closure of dangerous mine openings gradually evolved to address mine subsidence and underground mine fires.  Today, mining-related community impacts and stream erosion problems have become priority issues.  These...


Collecting Copper and Systematic Archaeological Analysis (2017)

Citation DOCUMENT

The Old Copper Complex is represented by tens of thousands of copper artifacts recovered from locations widely scattered across the landscapes of the Western Great Lakes. Many of these artifacts continue to be collected and curated by avocational archaeology enthusiasts with characteristically poor contextual information. Traditional scholarly study of this complex has been restricted to the consideration of copper as a symbolically potent object and the construction of artifact typologies. ...

Cracking concretions: methods for removing carbonate encrustations from faunal remains (2016)

Citation DOCUMENT

Calcium carbonate encrustations of faunal materials are a problem that limits analysis of faunal materials from a wide variety of regions and time periods. In many locations they are associated with climates with persistent or increased precipitation. This precipitation percolates through the sediments of the stratigraphic column, mixing with calcium carbonate. This mixture is then gradually deposited throughout the stratigraphic column, encasing archaeological materials in hardened carbonate...

Crowd Sourcing archaeological and palaeontological survey (2016)

Citation DOCUMENT

Fossilfinder.org is a citizen science project that enables the public to engage directly with palaeo/archaeological research. Data, in the form of images, was collected from research areas to the east of Lake Turkana. The regions studied are those well known as fossil bearing regions dating to periods of interest in human evolution studies (up to 4 million years old in parts). In the first two seasons of research 1 million images of the ground surface were captured at a resolution of 30 pixels...
