Artifacts From The Chinese Quarter Of Jacksonville, OR – The Chemical Story (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Kristine Madsen. Elizabeth Harman. Ray von Wandruszka. Chelsea Rose.

Analytical chemistry is a valuable tool in the identification of historical artifacts for which visual inspection is inconclusive. This is often the case with bottles and jars holding unknown materials, especially when the containers themselves provide little or no evidence. Several of the artifacts recovered from the historical Chinese Quarter of Jacksonville, OR, were of this type. They included a variety of medicine bottles and vials with contents that could only be identified through...


The Creation of an In-House, Interactive, Bottle Identification Guide for Students (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Emma Verstraete.

     During the 2015-2016 school-year, the Lindenwood University Archaeology Laboratory undertook an extensive examination of bottles that had been recovered from our campus excavation project and a donated collection. The data were compiled into a spreadsheet that included manufacturer, date range of production, place of manufacture, and contents of the bottle when discernable. In order to assist future lab workers with the identification of common bottle types and their makers in the Midwest,...

Far From Home: A Proposed Identification of the Winks Wreck, Kitty Hawk, N.C. as the Bristol-Built Steamship Mountaineer (2018)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Lucas Simonds.

The Winks Wreck, located a short distance offshore of Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, represents a unique facet of the underwater cultural heritage of the Outer Banks. Consisting primarily of two side-lever steam engines — typical of early British rather than American-built steamships — the site is unlike most others found in the region. The identification of the site as the wreck of Mountaineer, built in Bristol in 1835, was first suggested by local diver and researcher Marc Corbett in 2012. Diver...


Identifying and Siding the Stylohyoid Bone for North American Artiodactyls (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Patrick Lubinski. Thomas Hale.

The stylohyoid is the largest bone in the hyoid complex surrounding the throat in artiodactyls. There is little published information to allow its identification to species or anatomical side. Our study examined comparative stylohoid bones in order to provide criteria for taxonomic identification, using more than 350 animals representing 13 species present in the continental United States. Based on osteometrics and discrete features, the bone can be distinguished to species for most of these...


Nasty Stuff In Historical Archaeology (2019)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Lilian Bodley. Ray von Wandruszka.

This is an abstract from the "Meaning in Material Culture" session, at the 2019 annual meeting of the Society for Historical Archaeology. As it is the purpose of historical archaeology to unearth the unknown, there can be unpleasant surprises. Books have been written on the lurking dangers of artifacts, especially in regard to biological contagion. Chemical toxicity may also rear its ugly head, especially in laboratories like ours, where we focus on the chemical identification of historical...


Proteomics for Silks: Identify and Distinguish B. mori and Other Species (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Boyoung Lee. Mark Pollard. Holger Kramer.

Silk fibre generally known is made from a species called Bombyx mori, which was domesticated about 2,000 years ago in China. This is reared by human and the process is called sericulture. However there are other wild silk species that are not domesticated but still used in textile making. In an archaeological context, the proof of sericulture could be an index of the cultural and technological development of a location: it implies that there was a developed economy to import or produce silk—and...


"Railroaded" - The Wreck of the Schooner Plymouth! (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only David M. VanZandt. James Edward Paskert. Kevin Scott Magee.

An unidentified shipwreck was located in 1996 by CLUE (Cleveland Underwater Explorers) member Rob Ruetschle in Lake Erie, approximately 20 miles off Cleveland, Ohio.  CLUE re-visited and surveyed the shipwreck in 2013. After extensive archival research, CLUE identified the wreck as the two-masted schooner Plymouth, which sank on the night of 23 June 1852, after a collision with the sidewheel steamer Northern Indiana.   Additional historical research relative to the parties involved revealed a...


Slave Ships: Identifying Them in the Archaeological Record and Understanding Their Unique Characteristics (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Jessica Glickman.

This paper briefly examines the structure and construction of the slave ships in the United States and England and looks at how slave ships are different in structure and function from other merchant vessels. By examining them as special purpose ships, trends in structure and construction become apparent and prove to be unique to slave ships. The material culture found in the archaeological record that could identify a ship as having participated in the slave trade will also be examined. The...


Taxonomical Identification by Cytochrome b: A Patagonian Case (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Vivian Scheinsohn. Pablo Marcelo Fernández. Mercedes Grisel Fernández. Florencia Garrone. Mercedes Salado.

The application of traditional zooarchaeological methods in the analysis of faunal specimens recovered in Acevedo 1 site (Chubut, Argentina) led us to a low level of taxonomic identification. Therefore we decided to implement new ways to strengthen its information capacity. We joined hence the Laboratory of Forensic Genetics of the Argentine Forensic Anthropology Team (LGF-EAAF), which had developed locally a protocol for identify animal species in forensic contexts by Cytochrome b analysis. As...
