Diachronic Changes in the Shell Mounds of the San Francisco Bay: A Case Study of Ellis Landing (CA-CCO-295) (2015)

Citation DOCUMENT

The purpose of this paper is to examine diachronic changes in the long-term use of the Ellis Landing site (CA-CCO-295), a large shell mound on the San Francisco Bay whose chronology spans more than 3000 years. Originally excavated in 1906-1908 by Nels Nelson, recent investigations of museum materials housed in the Hearst Museum of Anthropology at UC Berkeley are providing new insights into the harvesting practices, mortuary patterns, and community dynamics of the people who resided at Ellis...

Fish heads that turn heads: catfish from Cabeçuda shell mound (2015)

Citation DOCUMENT

Zooarchaeological analysis of the Cabeçuda shell mound identified a number of Ariidae (Genidens barbus, G. genidens) neurocrania with exceptional preservation. This site is a large mound located in southern Brazil, and the faunal collection was sampled during archaeological interventions done in the 1950s. Generally, Ariidae specimens are a common find in Brazilian shell mounds. However, Cabeçuda is the only site that presents elements with this level of preservation. Catfish neurocrania are...

From Southern Brazil and Northwest Mexico: Swimming across Landscapes with the Fishes (2017)

Citation DOCUMENT

Prehistoric societies included multidimensional natural, economic, social, political, and ritual landscapes. In this paper we briefly describe landscapes from the southwestern coast of Brazil during the Archaic period and from the Casas Grandes Medio period (A.D. 1200­-1450) in northwest Chihuahua, Mexico. More specifically, we address ritual landscapes from shell mounds to hilltops. These components of landscapes are highlighted in honor of research conducted by Paul Fish and Suzanne Fish that...


Grounding an underground survey: Paddy fields and monumental Bronze Age shell-scapes in the Dian Basin, Yunnan, China (2015)

Citation DOCUMENT

Regions under paddy cultivation often present limits on site detection. In addition to deep plowing and continuous flooding of the fields, which intensify erosion and weathering of cultural remains, paddy fields are constructed and managed through field leveling and canal dredging. These processes raze and displace sites, leaving behind a fragmentary settlement record consisting primarily of sites defined by raised mounds and/or standing architecture. Oft used survey techniques that seek to...


Guaporé River: Shell mounds, earthworks and the explanation of the archaeological record (2015)

Citation DOCUMENT

Localized in the Amazon Southwest, the Guaporé River defines the border between Brazil and Bolívia, being a significant route of movement of goods, values and ideas since ancient times. This is attested by the occurrence of diferent archaeological sites (shell monds, geogliphs, ceramics associated to terra preta, rock art) that occurs since 8,000 BP to colonial times, historical evidence from colonial documents, linguistic and ethnological information, and hypotheses raised by anthropology. In...

Modified Landscapes, Modified Views: Transformations in Brazilian Shell Mound Archaeology (2016)

Citation DOCUMENT

For many years, normative approaches to shell mound archaeology in Brazil have characterized hunter-gatherer-fisher (HGF) populations as nomadic groups whose mound sites represent accidental accumulations of refuse, despite the fact that almost all contain numerous burials. A shift in perspective, especially regarding the role of aquatic resources, allowed great advances in the understanding of mound-building activities. A dramatic transformation of the southern Brazilian coast by HGF...


Monumentality in the Hunter-Gatherer-Fisher Landscapes of the Greater San Francisco Bay, California (2016)

Citation DOCUMENT

This paper examines the construction of impressive mounded landscapes along the greater San Francisco Bay in Late Holocene and Historic times.The authors address some of the theoretical and methodological issues involved in the investigation of extensive accretional shell mound complexes that were built up over multiple centuries. In evaluating questions about how and why these monumental landscapes were constructed, they present recent findings from the study of both large and small sized...

Reconsidering the Monuments of the Precontact Peoples of the Northeastern United States (2017)

Citation DOCUMENT

In the literature on monumentality there is little to no discussion of pre-contact Native American monuments in the northeastern United States. However, this does not mean the region was completely devoid of monumental architecture before the arrival of European, but monuments are not a common topic of archaeological research in the northeast. In this paper, I will discuss two structures- shell mounds, and stone and brush heaps- and argue that they should be discussed as monuments and further...


Ritual and/or Transformation: The Anadara granosa-Dominated Shell Mounds of the Australian Tropics (2017)

Citation DOCUMENT

Mounded shell deposits dominated by the mudflat bivalve Anadara granosa are highly visible features on the north Australian coast. Because of their distinctive, often monumental, features they have been a focal point for research into hunter-gatherer groups in these coastal environments. Interpretations of these mounded deposits have oscillated between those concerned with the functioning of prehistoric economic systems and those invoking ceremonial and ritual behaviours. In this paper we review...
