A Geochemical Investigation of Sociopolitical Structure among Holocene Hunter-Gatherers in the Cis-Baikal’s Little Sea Micro-Region (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Ben A. Shepard. Vladimir Bazaliiskii. Olga Goriunova. Michael Richards. Andrzej Weber.

We present the results of a large-scale comparative study of individual life histories among hunter-gatherer groups inhabiting the western coast of Lake Baikal (Russian Federation) during the Late Neolithic (5700-4900 cal BP) and Early Bronze Age (4900-3700 cal BP). More specifically, we employ data on stable strontium isotope (87Sr/86Sr) values from tooth enamel collected from human molars (M1-M3), along with associated data on variation in isotopes of carbon (δ13C) and nitrogen (δ15N) to...


The Intermediate Elite of the Puuc Maya Suburbs: Excavations at Terminal Classic Escalera al Cielo (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Evan Parker. George Bey III. Tomás Gallareta Negrón. Stephanie Simms. Amanda Strickland.

Seven years of extensive horizontal excavations at the Terminal Classic suburban hilltop complex of Escalera al Cielo have uncovered nearly the full range of social and economic activities undertaken by a class of intermediate elites on the edge of the Kiuic polity. Rather than considering Escalera al Cielo as simply another rung in the settlement hierarchy, we view it as a constituted community that formed and maintained ties of affiliation with the urban elite of Kiuic and with the commoners...

New but Classic: An examination of Hohokam Canal System 1 during the Classic Period (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Chris Caseldine.

Canal System 1, the largest of the four major systems along the lower Salt River, brought water to fields associated with some of the most well-known Hohokam villages, including Mesa Grande, Los Hornos, and Los Muertos. Previously, it was thought that the system reached its maximum extent prior to the Sedentary Period. Recent data and reconstructions of the development of Canal System 1, however, indicate that the system may not have reached its full extent until the Preclassic/Classic...

Reversals of Fortune: Understanding Shifts in Political Power from Above and Below (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only T. L. Thurston.

Current social theories from a variety of disciplines offer ways through which we may understand when and why citizens of a polity or subjects a ruler are likely to protest or rise in response to problems in the relationship between governments and those they govern. Some forms of asymmetry and inequality serve as good general predictors of when protest, rebellion, or civil war are most likely to occur, while the ways in which these issues are framed and resolved vary from society to society. ...
