1-20 (20 Records)
Seven shell beads and a bead or ornament fragment were recovered from excavations at a portion of the RIV-2798 conducted by Statistical Research in October 1993. This report provides descriptions of the beads and discusses the time periods during which they were deposited. Also included in the PDF are notes, edits, and correspondence between Statistical Research Inc and Chester King.
Continuity and Change: Part 2 (1997)
Part 2 provides all of the necessary information by which the analyses, syntheses, and conclusions can be judged, including detailed unit, feature, stratum, and facie descriptions. All field methods and results are also presented here, including those for the geomorphological study.
Continuity and Change: Part 3 (1997)
Part 3 presents the analyses of ecofacts. These studies provide the bridge between the environmental background provided in Part 2 and the material culture studies in Part 4. Ecofactual analyses are aimed at helping us understand subsistence patterns throughout prehistory. Both the paleobotanical studies and the faunal remains demonstrate 8,500 years of continuity.
Continuity and Change: Part 4 (1997)
Part 4 presents the analyses of artifacts. Worked bone and lithic analyses inform on technology, whereas shell ornaments and beads provide hints about the more personal aspects of prehistoric life. Although minor changes in material culture emerge, the clear pattern is 8,500 years on continuity. Combined with the analyses presented in Part 3, these chapters provide the data to interpret site structure and address many of the research issues outline in Part 2.
Continuity and Change: Part 5 (1997)
Part 5 synthesizes the information presented in the report and places the site in its regional context. Because the site provides considerable time depth, issues such as change in site structure and social organization are addressed. This part demonstrates the unique nature of the Elsinore site both from a culture history perspective and as a database for archaeological research. We use this high-information site to reevaluate prehistory and to explore the challenges hunter-gathers faced over...
Final Catalog of Recovered Materials (1997)
Final catalog of bag contents and boxes that are in curation. This is organized by bag number and states the box number where the bag is located and the material contained in the bag.
Floatation Analysis report from subcontractor (1995)
The analysis of botanical remains from the Lake Elsinore site (Riv-2798) was conducted to provide evidence of plant use by the prehistoric inhabitants of this site. Riv-2798 is an open air site located at the bottom of a small hill on the banks of the outlet channel for Lake Elsinore, Riverside County, California (Grenda, personal communication, 1995). Radiocarbon dates are not yet available for this site, however a preliminary analysis by the site’s investigators suggests that the site was...

Shell Analyst report from subcontractor (1995)
This appendix summaries the shell material recovered from the Lake Elsinore excavations. A sample of 1418 fragmentary and approximately 1018 specimens. The great majority of these are freshwater gastropods; although a number of marine taxa are well represented in the sample.
Wadh Lang'o site, Kenya
Zooarchaeological analysis and radiocarbon dating of a multicomponent site in Nyanza province, western Kenya. The site lies at ca. 1200 m asl, alongside rapids of the Sondu-Miriu River, which empties into the Winam Gulf of Lake Victoria. The site was excavated by National Museums of Kenya (led by F. Odede) with support from British Institute in Eastern Africa in 2000-2001, and by the British Institute (led by C. Ashley) in 2004. Data here are from Trench 1 of the 2001 excavations only. Trench...
