3D Modeling of Archaeological Collections: A Case Study in Archaeometry (2015)

Citation DOCUMENT Sarah Love. Andrew Vaughan.

Artifact collections and skeletal remains curated in multiple facilities and stored in variable conditions across the globe contain a wealth of archaeological knowledge. Access to data about these collections, much less the collections themselves, can be restricted both by policy concerns and practical considerations. Recent technological advancements have made creating high quality digital representations of both artifact and skeletal material possible. In this paper we compare two methods of...


Adoption of Ceramic Technology: Case Study from Incipient Jomon of Southern Kyushu (ca. 13,500/14,000 – 12,000 cal yr BP) (2015)

Citation DOCUMENT Fumie Iizuka. Masami Izuho. Pamela Vandiver.

Hunter-gatherers of late-Pleistocene Japan were among the first in the world to adopt ceramic technology. Archaeologists have suggested that in southern Kyushu, these people of Incipient Jomon (13500/14000-12000 cal yr BP) also used large grinding stones, stored food, occupied pit houses, and made boats for navigation; they had signatures of reduced residential mobility. Nevertheless, there have not been systematic tests to assess the hypothesized decreased residential mobility. Identification...


The Aferlife of Archaeometry; the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory Database Project (2015)

Citation DOCUMENT Matthew Boulanger. Michael Glascock.

What happens to artifact-sourcing data after a laboratory closes? We provide an update on the ongoing effort to preserve archaeometric data produced between 1968 and 1990 at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. Over the past decade, we have located and digitized chemical and contextual data for over 10,000 archaeological specimens analyzed by the laboratory. Our efforts are now turning toward analysis and application of these data, many of which have never been published let alone...


The Analytical Nexus: Multi-Technique Approaches to Ceramic Composition (2015)

Citation DOCUMENT Wesley Stoner.

Archaeologists have employed many different approaches to characterize the composition of ceramic pastes, but until recently only a minority of studies have used multiple analytical techniques to examine the same sample. An "analytical technique" is used here to mean a single perspective that characterizes an aspect of a ceramic paste. Since humans created pottery using different processes and recipes, it follows that each perspective teaches us about a unique aspect of the potter's behavior...

Archaeometry and Mural Paintings in Ancient Peru: A Transdisciplinary Approach to Apprehend the Prehispanic Artisan Painters (2015)

Citation DOCUMENT Véronique Wright.

Mural art is an artistic expression common to most of the Prehispanic societies and it was often investigated though iconographic point of view. Nevertheless, the recent researches particularly on Moche mural paintings (1st-8th century) have demonstrated the archaeometry contribution to study these polychromic vestiges. Indeed it constitutes a valued tool to apprehend these ancient societies and to preserve its exceptional painting patrimony. Thus, until 2012, a new research project is...


Archaeometry and the lime kilns (2015)

Citation DOCUMENT Maria Ortiz Ruiz.

The characterization of the ring structures made ​​during the past two years allowed strongly suggest the presence of kilns for lime production used by the Maya of the Classic and evidence of use in the Colonial Period. Archaeometric techniques used in this research were critical in the mineralogical characterization, dating and obtaining organic waste associated with the production of lime. In this paper I present the results of two years of work that allowed characterizing the limestone used...

Are There Any French Glass Beads In Quebec (16th and 17th Centuries)? (2018)

Citation DOCUMENT adelphine bonneau. Reginald Auger. Bernard Gratuze. Jean-François Moreau.

Hundreds of pounds of glass beads were imported among other goods by French settlers during the historical period. Those glass beads are found on several contexts from trading posts to Jesuits houses; alone or on objects: chaplets, bracelets, cloths. Although those beads were imported by French people, were they manufactured in France? If not, where do they come from? Is there a difference between beads found in trading posts and those from French settlements (settler use)? Is it possible to...


Beyond Ceramic Provenience: Interdisciplinary Research into Social Practices at LIRAC (2017)

Citation DOCUMENT Andrew Roddick. Greg Braun. Kostalena Michelaki.

Dr. Kostalena Michelaki founded the laboratory for Interdisciplinary Research of Archaeological Ceramics (LIRAC) in 2006, thanks to funding by the Canadian Foundation for Innovation. She established this facility to examine the relationships between technology, society and the environment, through the archaeometric analysis of technological choices made by people in the production and use of ceramics. Scholars working in LIRAC, and in associated McMaster research centres such as the Brockhouse...


CAMOTECCER: Beyond the shard. Modeling and simulating variability in Central Asian pottery technology (2015)

Citation DOCUMENT Alexis Torrano. Andreas Angourakis. Veronica Martinez. Josep Maria Gurt.

Pottery technology is a well-studied field of archaeological research. However, particular contributions are often limited to a partial characterization, due to the technical and theoretical backgrounds of the researchers involved. Pottery samples are interrogated separately through chemical analyses, petrographic characterization and the assignation to both decorative and functional classes. In most cases, the results of such myriad of studies remain relatively unconnected up to a general...


Change and continuity in ceramic production at Cerro de Oro, Cañete (2015)

Citation DOCUMENT Francesca Fernandini.

Cerro de Oro, a 150ha settlement located on the lower Cañete valley presents a long term occupation that spans from the Early Intermediate Period through Colonial times (0-1600 A.D.). Research performed by the Cerro de Oro Archaeological Project at the site during 2012-2013 has focused on the Early Intermediate-Middle Horizon occupation (500-1000 A.D.) yielding important information regarding the nature of the settlement, the sequence of its construction and use, as well as its possible...


CHARATERIZATION OF CERAMICS UNCOVERED IN THE PAROTA RIVER BASIN AND LAKE SIRAHUEN BASIN, MICHOACÁN, MEXICO: FLUORESCENCE ANALYSIS IN ULTRA-VIOLET LIGHT AND PETROGRAPHY IN THIN SHEETS (2017)

Citation DOCUMENT Mijaely Castañón. Lissandra González. Alejandro Valdes. José Luis Punzo.

This poster shows the results of the petrographic characterization of the ceramics found in the basins of the Parota River and Lake Sirahuen, two archaeological areas surveyed as part of the Proyecto Arqueología y Paisaje del Área Centro Sur de Michoacán. Fluorescence techniques applied are an induction of ultraviolet light and petrographic analysis in thin sheets; the first technique was used as an experimental test to identify variances in a very large sample and thereby to reduce to a viable...


Chemical analyses and copy-errors: technological control and artistic behaviour in the making of China’s Terracotta Army (2015)

Citation DOCUMENT Marcos Martinon-Torres. Andrew Bevan. Xiuzhen Janice Li. Yin Xia. Kun Zhao.

Built in the 3rd century BC, the Terracotta Army constitutes an unprecedented investment of technological resources as well as a huge work of art. An icon of a much larger mausoleum, the army of thousands of heavily armed warriors materialised in just a few decades under the command of the man who would become China’s first emperor. This paper presents some aspects of an ongoing project that investigates this logistical feat, paying particular attention to craft organisation, quality control and...


Chemical residue and microbotanical analyses in the Royal Kitchen at Kabah, Yucatan. (2015)

Citation DOCUMENT Edgar Leal Hernandez. Luis J. Venegas de la Torre. Mario Zimmermann.

Since 2010 the "Proyecto de Restauración e Investigación Arqueológica en el Grupo Este de Kabah, Yucatán", under the direction of archaeologist Lourdes Toscano, performed explorations in the area that covers structures 1C-2, 1C-3, 1C-4 y 1C-5. The goal of these interventions is bearing out the hypothesis that the group served as a special food-processing area. Excavations resulted in the recovery of faunal remains, ceramics, as well as several types of lithic tools like prismatic blades,...
