Elemental Analysis of Human Bone using a non-destructive portable X-ray fluorescence spectrometer (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Christine Bergmann. Robert Tykot. Robert Bowers.

Peru is commonly known for having the largest empire in pre-Columbian America but relatively less is known about the subsistence and migratory patterns of the pre-Inca communities that existed from the Initial Period through the Early Intermediate Period. During the Initial Period, interaction and trade was prevalent among coastal, inland, and highland populations with trade interactions intensifying later in time with peoples from the highlands. Our research tests the hypothesis that increased...


Elemental composition of Iron Age glass beads from Myanmar (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Laure Dussubieux. Thomas Oliver Pryce.

Glass appears in Southeast Asia at the début of the Iron Age, around the middle of the 1st millennium BC. Variations in Southeast Asian glass type distributions were found to be excellent markers of changes in cultural and economic interactions but are based heavily on material from Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam. Other regions, in particular Myanmar’s pivotal position with India, have remained largely unexplored, making it difficult to draw a global picture for Southeast Asia during this...

Made in America? Sourcing the Coarse Earthenwares of Chesapeake Plantations (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Lindsay Bloch.

Unlike many other goods at the time, which were wholly imported from Great Britain or elsewhere abroad, utilitarian coarse earthenwares were also produced locally within the colonies. In the Chesapeake, it has been suggested that these local wares were reserved for those unable to trade directly with England. This paper presents the results of elemental analysis via laser ablation ICP-MS in order to identify the sources of utilitarian earthenwares used by plantation households. Employing a...

POLLEN, PHYTOLITH, STARCH, AND PROTEIN ANALYSIS, CHARCOAL IDENTIFICATION AND AMS RADIOCARBON AGE DETERMINATION, FOURIER TRANSFORM INFRARED SPECTROSCOPY (FTIR), AND XRF ELEMENTAL ANALYSIS OF SAMPLES FROM SITES IN PLATTE COUNTY, WYOMING (2017)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Linda Scott Cummings. Peter Kováčik. B. Lee Drake.

Multiple archaeological sites located within the boundaries of the Camp Guernsey Installation provided ceramics, lithics, and sediment sample for pollen, phytolith, starch, protein, and/or macrofloral analysis, and/or for infrared analysis of organic chemicals and/or XRF analysis of elements (Table 1). Obsidian flakes submitted from three sites were sourced using XRF elemental analysis. Charcoal identified from three locations was AMS radiocarbon dated.


POLLEN, STARCH, AND ELEMENTAL (XRF) ANALYSIS FOR SAMPLES FROM SITE CSH 2, WAIKĪKĪ, O’AHU, HAWAI’I (2017)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Linda Scott Cummings.

Three samples were collected from site CSH 2, a “pre-Contact to early 20th century wetland agricultural complex located within the ‘Ewa parcels of the Kuhio Collection at Waikīkī project area” (Raff-Tierney, personal communication, December 4, 2017). Samples were collected from three strata in Trench 7 near Walina St. The subsurface agricultural deposit comprises buried and abandoned lo’i deposits and basalt and coral cobble features. Natural vegetation is assumed to have been typical of coastal...
