From materiality to space: monumental enclosures, exploited mineral resources and territoriality during the Michelsberg Culture (Neolithic, 4200-3700 BC, France and Germany) (2015)

Citation DOCUMENT Olivier Weller. Jérôme Dubouloz. Laurence Manolakakis.

The Michelsberg Culture saw the onset of major enonomic, social, technological and cultural transformations in agricultural societies around 4200 BC Cal. The most striking feature is without doubt the appearance in the landscape of large sites enclosed by complex systems of ditches and palissades. On the other hand, different modes of production and the exploitation of flint and salt show not only networks of raw material procurement but also a new organisation of territories and the role of...


Holy lords and holy lands: territory in Classic Maya inscriptions (2015)

Citation DOCUMENT Alexandre Tokovinine.

One of the significant challenges in dealing with indigenous classification systems is establishing continuities and discontinuities between Pre-Contact, Colonial, and Modern situations. The present paper addresses this question with respect to the concept of territory among the Ancient Maya, specifically, the speakers of Ch’olan and Yukatekan languages. It considers the corpus of Classic period inscriptions from the Southern Maya Lowlands as well as sixteenth and seventeenth century documents...


Nomadism in the Magdalenian groups of Monruz and Champréveyres (Switzerland) (2015)

Citation DOCUMENT Marie-Isabelle Cattin.

Located in a region where flint is of mediocre quality, the Magdalenian sites of Monruz and Champréveyres (Neuchâtel, Switzerland) show the introduction of a high proportion of good quality flint from sometimes very distant (up to 200 km) regions. For this reason we can argue that flint was not a constraining factor on the selection of camp location. It is certain that favorable hunting grounds, as well as the proximity to water sources and combustible materials, were more important. The...


Portuguese settlement in Mumbai region, India: territorial occupation throughout structural remains (16th-18th centuries) (2013)

Citation DOCUMENT André P. S. D. Teixeira.

Most parts of Greater Mumbai belonged to Portugal between 1534 and 1739, except for the island of Bombay, handed over to the British in 1665. The territory of Bassein, the ancient capital of this region, was the first settlement of Estado da Índia to occupy a significant area. The Portuguese enjoyed territorial stability during its first century in Bassein. This favoured the Portuguese annexation of land through the incorporation of pre-existing structures, the application of solutions used in...


Pottery in the colonies: the silent marker revisited (2013)

Citation DOCUMENT Javier Iñañez. Marisol Madrid i Fernandez. Jaume Buxeda i Garrigos.

The contact between the European and the Native American worlds was the beginning of a period of conquest and colonization that disrupted the tradition of the native populations, giving pass to a new political, economical, religious, and town-planning period. While the first European foundations were just survival driven ones, they became a strategic foundation in order to develop a proper colonial enterprise. The European culture arrival into the Americas brought also a new material culture...

Regional Political Economies in the South Caucasus: Tracing Social Boundaries in a Eurasian Context (2017)

Citation DOCUMENT Alan Greene.

After more than a century of Russian Imperial and Soviet research dominated by the excavation of tumulus burials, researchers in the South Caucasus have now spent two decades investigating exactly how settlement archaeology sheds light on the inhabitants of the region's earliest polities (ca. 1500-1150 BC). Most of this data has emerged from the sites of the Tsaghkahovit Plain, which have served as a micro-regional laboratory for Bronze and Iron Age studies since 1998. But how exactly do these...


Shifting Allegiances at Yaxuna during the Early to Late Classic: Territory and the Loss of Independent Rule (2015)

Citation DOCUMENT Jonathan Pagliaro. Travis Stanton.

The site of Yaxuna, Yucatan, Mexico was an independent Maya city from the Formative to Early Classic periods. While the size of its territory during the early periods is unknown due to the lack of regional data on other large early cities in Central Yucatan, the Early Classic dynasty at Yaxuna was violently and abruptly vanquished towards the end of this period. At this time, a 100 kilometer causeway was also constructed connecting Yaxuna to the large metropolis of Coba, which was at its...
