Belizean Jade: Why Such a Rich Periphery? (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Mayya Azarova.

This paper addresses the question of the place of Belizean Maya jade artifacts within a broader Mesoamerican context. More specifically I examine the similarities between Belizean jade and other jade finds in different Maya areas. I discuss why a significant number of major jade finds have occurred in Belize while it is often considered to be on the periphery of Maya culture as well as examining the variations in the iconography of carved images on jade. I draw on evidence of recent finds and...

Developing Minimally Destructive Protocols for DNA Analysis of Museum Collection Bone Artifacts (2016)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Kelly Brown. Barbara Winter. Chen Shen. Dongya Yang.

Ancient DNA (aDNA) analysis has revolutionized the field of archaeology with its ability to provide unique and otherwise unattainable information about the past. However, due to the destructive nature of current aDNA techniques many museum curators are hesitant to subject their collections to this kind of analysis. This poster presents a new sampling strategy for obtaining adequate amounts of bone powder from bone artifacts for aDNA extraction, while minimizing the damage done to the valuable...

Forget Me Nots: Smaller Collections Need Archaeologists Too (2015)

Emil Haury's 1958 synthesis of the Pueblo III-Pueblo IV period (A.D. 1265-1450) archaeology of Point of Pines Pueblo, in east-central Arizona, is the American Southwest's classic case study in how to reliably infer ancient migrations. Field school excavations conducted between 1946 and 1960 uncovered compelling evidence of immigrants from the Kayenta region of far northeastern Arizona and southeastern Utah. However, because the excavations at Point of Pines Pueblo have never been fully reported,...

Repositioning Habitus as Cultural Capital in Sami Museum Collections (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Natalia Magnani.

Ethnographic museum collections are frequently presented as regional culture histories, portraying a timeless native past. In the Sámi regions of Finland, institutionalized courses and individuals seek to manufacture of museum objects anew, and exhibit this present revival in concert with the past. The recreated objects are not only shown in their present living contexts but removed from museums and used at local cultural events. These new forms of representation emphasize living use and...


Revealing Pre-Columbian Bundles: Collaborative Student-Faculty Research at the Logan Museum of Anthropology, Beloit College (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Kylie Quave.

Recent research at the Logan Museum of Anthropology combines student and faculty expertise with archaeometric methods to reveal new information about coastal pre-Columbian Andean collections brought to the museum in the early- to mid-twentieth century. With student collaborators we scanned a possible “bird mummy” with computed tomography to reveal that there was no avian body but rather a complex suite of offerings within its cloth wrapping. They included maize cobs, shell, and other materials....
