"In pursuit of the past": Borrero Influences in our Regional Research in the NW of Patagonia (Chubut, Argentina) (2019)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Vivian Scheinsohn. Florencia Rizzo. Sabrina Leonardt.

This is an abstract from the "Patagonian Evolutionary Archaeology and Human Paleoecology: Commending the Legacy (Still in the Making) of Luis Alberto Borrero in the Interpretation of Hunter-Gatherer Studies of the Southern Cone" session, at the 84th annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology. This presentation aims to highlight the theoretical and methodological relevance of Borrero’s work to address regional research in Patagonia through our own project in Genoa and Pico valleys...

Inheritance, Innovation, and Interaction:the motivations for and consequences of social interaction in the context of initial settlement (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Matthew Des Lauriers.

While providing a general outline of several initial settlement strategies pursued across the Americas, I argue that social networks between the small-scale communities involved would be established rapidly upon arrival. Certainly, the events of initial contact and process of network formation would have occurred within a sub-generational time-frame. The flow of material goods, genes, and information between members of the small-scale pioneering communities is essential to the survival of...

Peopling of Jeju in the Late Pleistocene and Early Holocene (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Jae Won Ko.

Paleolithic sties in Jeju Island have been found in the Quaternary sediment layers that are related to volcanic activities. Accordingly, research has been closely related to the geological investigation on sediment formation and volcanic activities. This presentation focuses on two Paleolithic sites, Oeododong along the north coast and Sangsugae cave along the south coast. The Oedodong site contains choppers and is dated to 32,000 BP; the Sangsugae cave site represents the Terminal Pleistocene,...

Sinodonty and/or Sundadonty: Revisiting the Three-Wave Model for the Peopling of the Americas (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only George Scott. Roman Schomberg.

Starting with a single root trait, C.G. Turner II developed a model for the peopling of the Americas that involved three migratory waves: (1) Amerind; (2) Na-Dene/Northwest Coast; and (3) Eskimo-Aleut. After expanding to 29 variables, he found the same general pattern and contended that all New World populations were derived from Sinodont groups in Northeast Asia. Recently, researchers have challenged the three-wave model on genetic, archaeological, and dental grounds, including the notion...

What if the restaurant isn’t at the end of the universe but in a much nicer place? (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only David Meltzer.

In their 2012 paper, 'The restaurant at the end of the universe,' O’Connell and Allen developed a speculative and far-reaching model for the colonization of Sahul, one that sees initial populations as small, spatially concentrated in scattered ‘sweet’ spots, and which exhibited only occasional growth spurts and geographic expansion along extant coastlines. Although granting the obvious differences between the environmental stage and historical conditions under which the Pleistocene colonization...
