An archaeological study of landscape, people, and mobility in the Lakulaku River Basin in eastern Taiwan from the 18th century to the present (2016)

Citation DOCUMENT Chieh-fu Jeff Cheng.

This research explores the historical development in the Lakulaku River Basin in the eastern section of Yushan National Park in Taiwan from the 18th century to the present through a landscape archaeological perspective. The Lakulaku River area has a complex history. Indigenous Bunun group, Qing Empire from China, and Japanese colonial government had once occupied this region, leaving the traces of human activities that change the natural landscape. This research analyzes these traces of human...


A Bayesian Approach to the Paleoindian Colonization of the Northeastern US (2016)

Citation DOCUMENT Nathaniel Kitchel. Bryan Shuman. Joseph Gingerich. Erick Robinson.

Research on the Paleoindian colonization of the northeastern US suffers from numerous chronological problems. These problems are exacerbated by the use of summed probability distributions, which do not take into account the unique sampling issues and specific probability distributions of individual dates and their particular relationships to archaeological contexts. This paper introduces a Bayesian statistical approach to clarify some of these problems and raise new questions about early...


Birnirk Expansion across Alaska during the Medieval Climate Anomaly: Causal or Coincidence? (2015)

Citation DOCUMENT Owen Mason. Claire Alix. Nancy Bigelow.

Around AD 1000, from near Barrow, the Birnirk culture expanded southward across northwest Alaska, with settlements arising at Point Hope, Cape Krusenstern and Cape Espenberg. The motivation and successful adaptations of Birnirk were furthered by the stormy weather associated with upwelling and glacial expansion, correlative with tree ring, beach ridge and varve sequences across northern Alaska. New interdisciplinary data sets, archaeological and paleoecological, from Cape Espenberg elucidate...


Buried in the Sand: Investigations at Ucheliungs Cave, Palau, Micronesia (2017)

Citation DOCUMENT Jessica Stone. Scott Fitzpatrick. Matthew Napolitano. Connor Thorud.

Remote Oceania was one of the last major regions colonized by humans prehistorically. While there has been an increasing amount of archaeological and genetic research in the region in recent years, many parts are sorely un- or understudied. This is particularly true of Micronesia, where many questions remain as to how and when these early inhabitants settled and adapted to the area. The Palauan archipelago, which comprises hundreds of smaller uplifted limestone "Rock Islands," hosts identified...


The Business of 'Becoming': Community Formation and Greek Colonization in the Northwestern Mediterranean (2017)

Citation DOCUMENT Catherine Steidl.

In the early 1st millennium BCE, Greek communities sprang up around the Mediterranean, and the West was no exception. As the story goes, Ionian Greeks arrived in southern France and a legendary marriage to the local chieftan’s daughter ensured their acceptance as settlers. From their base at Massalia, they expanded their trading foothold to Emporion on the Catalonian coast, cementing a relationship that was long-attested by the presence of Greek goods on western shores. Whereas rapid...


Catholic Parishes and Colonization: A Frontier Parish in Grand Bay, Dominica (2015)

Citation DOCUMENT Steve Lenik.

The Catholic parishes that were established as units of ecclesiastical jurisdiction are among the range of institutions, including chartered companies, missions, and military installations, deployed by nation-states in the Americas to exert control over the daily lives of African, European, and indigenous peoples. As administrative units in the colonization of newly acquired territories in the Caribbean islands, parishes introduced administrative boundaries and religious personnel who intended...


Causes and Consequences of Colonization in the Caribbean: What Is Known and What Is Unknowable (2017)

Citation DOCUMENT Neil Duncan. Peter E. Siegel. John G. Jones. Nicholas Dunning. Deborah M. Pearsall.

One of the defining characteristics of humans is our propensity to migrate. However, the push or pull factors resulting in human migrations may be impossible to know in some cases. Furthermore, our sole reliance on the archaeological record may mislead our understanding of the timing and impact of migrations. Recognizing migrations in the archaeological past is made especially difficult in cases where migrating groups were small, leaving ephemeral traces of their occupations. Paleoenvironmental...


Charting Intention: Place and Power on Virginia’s Earliest Maps (2017)

Citation DOCUMENT Jamie E. May.

Nothing makes the intentions and aspirations of a colonizing enterprise more apparent than the maps and charts of the spaces they seek to control, particularly their choices of which geographic and cultural features to represent or assign the power of a name. Because of the obvious value as primary documents, a small handful of maps relating to Virginia in the early contact period are used by historians, anthropologists and archaeologists to place and interpret sites and features on the...

Colonization Models of Iceland: new Archaeological and Environmental Data (2015)

Citation DOCUMENT Magdalena Schmid.

This study aims to improve the dating resolution of archaeological and environmental data from the earliest sites of human occupation in Iceland in order to understand better the timing, scale and rate of the colonization of Iceland. This can be achieved through critical examination of the whole corpus of approximately 650 sites which is now accessible; through cross-referencing of different dating methods – primarily tephrochronology, radiocarbon dating and typology – and through application of...


Colonization of Northern North America: a view from Eastern Beringia (2016)

Citation DOCUMENT Ben Potter. Joshua Reuther. Vance Holliday. Charles Holmes.

Recent investigations at multiple well-stratified multi-component sites in interior Eastern Beringia have provided important data on late Pleistocene technology, subsistence economy, and habitat use. Our review incorporates recent multidisciplinary work at Upward Sun River, Mead, and Swan Point. We summarize these data within human ecological perspectives and derive implications for the lifeways of early Beringians. We review the biogeography and early archaeological record for the Ice Free...


Colonization of the Land of Stone Money: Resolving the Unclear Origins of Early Settlements of Yap, Western Caroline Islands (2017)

Citation DOCUMENT Matthew Napolitano. Scott Fitzpatrick. Geoffrey Clark. Jessica Stone.

The prehistoric colonization of remote islands in Micronesia represents some of the most significant series of diasporas in human history. While archaeological and genetic research is shedding new light on the origins and timing of what were clearly multiple and chronologically disparate entries into the western and eastern Micronesian archipelagoes, many of these colonizing ventures are poorly understood. This is particularly true of Yap in the Western Caroline Islands. Unlike the Palau and the...


Colonization or Migration? Applying colonial theory to Post-Roman Britain (2016)

Citation DOCUMENT Brooke Creager.

Colonial studies has long ignored early medieval Britain. However thanks to archaeology it is possible to reconstruct enough the conditions of the fifth and sixth centuries to understand the impact of the multiple colonizations. England experienced two distinct occupations by foreign parties before the Norman Conquest: the expansion of the Roman Empire into Britain ending in 410 AD and the Anglo-Saxon migration beginning in the mid-fifth century. Neither of these occurrences has been discussed...


Colonizing Yourself: The British colonization of Britain (2016)

Citation DOCUMENT Eric Harkleroad.

Often discussing Colonialism means discussing the colonized and the impact of the colonizers on them highlighting indigenous responses to the situation as well as looking at methods of resistance and signs of the agency of the colonized. All too often we overlook the impact of this process on the colonizer. I argue that during the rise of the British Empire the role of colonizer became such a part of national identity that it colored interpretations of British prehistory. This is most evident...


Detecting Dutchness: Global Identities in the 17th Century Dutch Atlantic (2018)

Citation DOCUMENT Jessica L. Nelson.

This paper discusses the development of a Dutch national identity in the 17th century Dutch Republic, as evidenced in both the archaeological and historical records, and how this identity persisted with some variation in the West India Company colonies of New Netherland and St. Eustatius. By the early 1600s, a common Dutch identity rooted in the shared values of pragmatism, cleanliness, self-interest, Calvinist morality tempered by an appreciation for material comforts, and a conviction in the...


The Early Postclassic Aztatlán Colonization of the Coast of Jalisco, Mexico (2016)

Citation DOCUMENT Joseph Mountjoy. Fabio Germán Cupul Magaña. Rafael García de Quevedo Machain. Martha Lorenza López Mestas Camberos.

Recent investigations at the site of Arroyo Piedras Azules on the northwestern coast of Jalisco have revealed much about the nature and the date of Early Postclassic Aztatlán colonization of the Pacific coast of Jalisco. Excavations at this 3-4 hectare habitation site by a local enthusiast and follow-up investigations that included stratigraphic excavations by the primary author have indicated a direct colonization of this site by people from coastal Nayarit who arrived during the Cerritos phase...


El Presidio de San Francisco: Investigating Daily Life on the Spanish Frontier (2015)

Citation DOCUMENT Montserrat A. Osterlye.

In 1776, Spain sent thirty families from what is now Mexico to establish El Presidio de San Francisco as the northernmost outpost of their empire. Presidial soldiers defended adjacent Catholic missions and policed California Indians in the San Francisco Bay Area. The historical record is largely silent on the lives of colonial families and their relationships with indigenous people. This paper summarizes research at the archaeological site of El Presidio de San Francisco since its discovery in...


Finding Nouvelle Acadie: Lost Colonies, Collective Memory, and Public Archaeology as an Expedition of Discovery (2017)

Citation DOCUMENT Mark A Rees.

In 1765 more than 200 Acadian émigrés from Nova Scotia arrived in south Louisiana and established the colony of Nouvelle Acadie along the natural levees of the Bayou Teche.  Joined by fellow exiles and extended family, two centuries later their numerous descendants experienced a cultural revitalization as Cajuns living in a colonized homeland called Acadiana. During the past three years the New Acadia Project has surveyed portions of the Teche Ridge in search of the original home sites and...


Forager Mobility, Landscape Learning, and the Colonization of the Americas (2015)

Citation DOCUMENT Mike Cannon. David Meltzer.

Among the many important contributions that Robert Kelly has made to the archaeological and anthropological literature are 1) an elegant theoretical model of forager residential movement, presented in his book The Foraging Spectrum, 2) a very influential argument about the Paleoindian colonization of the Americas, which he developed along with Lawrence Todd, and 3) insightful discussions of landscape learning by hunter-gatherers. Here, we explore these issues further by expanding Kelly’s...

Hybrid Cultures: The Visibility of the European Invasion of Caribbean Honduras in the 16th Century (2017)

Citation DOCUMENT Rus Sheptak. Rosemary Joyce.

Archaeological excavations in Caribbean coast Honduras explored the site of Ticamaya, described in 16th-century Spanish documents as the seat of a leader of indigenous resistance. Yet despite testing confirmed deposits from the period covering initial conflict with the Spanish, roughly 1520-1536, these excavations produced no use of European goods until the late 18th century. Contemporary with Ticamaya, the site of Naco to the west hosted troops sent by Cortes, and at least one majolica vessel...
