An Analysis of the use of Quarries and Workshops by Late Prehistoric People in Western Pennsylvania (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Beverly Chiarulli.

During the Late Prehistoric period in the central Allegheny Valley of Western Pennsylvania, at least four major lithic raw material types were used for the manufacture of a limited variety of tool types. The major tool forms were small triangular projectile points and flake tools. The major raw material types used in this region include Onondaga, Loyalhanna, and Shriver cherts and Vanport Siliceous Shale. Workshops and quarries have been identified have been identified for these materials and...

Examining Patterns of Toolstone Procurement in an Edible Lithic Landscape on the Columbia Plateau (2018)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Ron Adams.

Expansive outcrops of high-quality cryptocrystalline silicate toolstone occur in many localities within the Columbia Plateau region of North America. Archaeological evidence indicates that these locations were utilized extensively by pre-contact Native American groups. The geological processes that shaped these landforms and produced outcropping lithic material also created ideal conditions for the growth plant food resources, particularly root crops. These root crops thrive on the lithosols...


A geoarcheological study of the ancient quarries of Río Bec (Campeche, México) (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Celine Gillot.

The stone buildings of the Río Bec archaeological zone are a testament to the emergence of a new architectural tradition in the central Maya lowlands during the second half of the first millennium of our era. To understand this new architecture and the ways it has been conceived, a recent investigation has been carried out on the technological process involved in its production. Since construction practices can hardly be appreciated without considering the materials used by the builders, this...

In Search of "False Alibates": A Quagmire in Chert Sourcing from Northeastern New Mexico (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Sara Cullen.

Applications of elementally-sensitive geochemical methods have made it possible for archaeologists to identify chert sources with more provenance accuracy than previously possible. Alibates dolomite from quarries in the Texas Panhandle is commonly identified in Southwest sites as evidence for trade with Southern Plains communities. However, regional archaeological research suggests the presence of an Alibates "look-alike" chert outcrop in northeastern New Mexico, near the Baldy Hill formation...


Maya Monument Production: Techne and the Birth of Meaning (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Emmett Nahil. Mary Clarke.

Analyses of sculptural practices of the Ancient Maya have centered on the final stages of production, namely the identities of sculptors, the locations of production, and the techne of sculptural practice. While the contributions of these analyses cannot be contested, there remains a poorly resolved understanding of when in the process of sculpture limestone gains its cultural significance. This paper presents data from recent excavations at a quarry workshop at Xultun where a stela still...

Quantifying obsidian extraction at the Zaragoza-Oyameles source area of Puebla, Mexico and what this means for understanding ancient Mesoamerican economies (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Charles Knight.

Typically overlooked in economic models of commodity production, distribution and consumption in Mesoamerica, is some discussion on the initial procurement of the materials that form the basis of the ancient economies we study. Significant cultural issues, such as labor coordination, territoriality, group identity, knowledge transmission and wealth, which are all wrapped up in a dynamic political and ideological milieu, are at play in the discrete geographical loci where material procurement...

Traditional Native American Raw Material Sources in the Yellowstone Region (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Anne S. Dowd.

Obsidian and other lithic sources in the Yellowstone region of Wyoming and nearby Montana or Idaho were used up until contact with Euroamericans and information from oral traditions, ethnohistory, ethnoarchaeology, and toponymy provide data on the significance of certain raw material choices made by Native Americans such as the local Shoshone. Why did chipped stone weapons and tools persist even after new metal technologies were introduced? How did the choices of raw materials signal Native...
