Applying Innovation Diffusion Theory to Archaeology: a Case Study on the Rise of Iron Technology in Western Asia (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Nathaniel Erb-Satullo.

For a variety of historical reasons, the interdisciplinary field of innovation diffusion research has been underutilized by archaeologists examining technological change. Yet there is much to be gained by engaging with the predictive models produced by hundreds of investigations of technology adoption. Using the case of iron adoption in Western Asia, I demonstrate how an approach utilizing these concepts, with some modifications, provide a more complete perspective on technological change. ...

"A burden of one’s own choice is not felt": observing ceramic production technology, exchange and consumption in the Late Mycenaean Saronic Gulf. (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only William Gilstrap. Peter M. Day.

It is widely recognized that Mycenaean states varied in their structure and organisation, were linked to different types of crafting industries, a range of trade networks and a host of consumer preferences. The Saronic Gulf is a paradoxical space that physically separates Mycenaean geopolitical states/regions, while its waters facilitate the interregional movement of people, goods and ideas. The application of thin section petrography and INAA to observe the movement of pottery, the most...


Cabins, Households, and Families: The Multiple Loci of Pooled Production at James Madison's Montpelier (2016)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Eric Schweickart.

The lives of the members of the enslaved community at James Madison’s plantation in Virginia, Montpelier, were shaped by the types of work they were expected to do in order to keep the president’s mansion and farm running smoothly. Recent work by historical demographers has highlighted the importance of pooling resources within households, with members each contributing the results of their production activities to the group.  Archaeological excavations at several different early 19th century...


Ceramic Production on Barbados Plantations: Seasonality Explored (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Dwayne Scheid.

The fragments of unglazed red earthenware vessels used in the production of sugar and  identified as ceramic sugarwares, were frequently used by plantations for processing and curing sugar and collecting molasses, and were a common sight on Barbadian plantations from the seventeenth into the late nineteenth centuries.  The local production of these wares occurred in potteries operated by plantations along the east coast of Barbados. Planters managed these potteries while the workers themselves...


Changes on the Land: Gordion in the 1st mill BCE (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Lisa Kealhofer. Peter Grave. Ben Marsh.

Throughout the 1st mill BCE, the inhabitants of Gordion engaged with multiple changes in political power and agricultural strategies, within a diverse landscape with shifting climate regimes. Over most of this period, the city, its industries, and its hinterland population thrived. Using multiple lines of evidence, both material and environmental, this paper explores what we know about changes in the organization of different production spheres at Gordion in order to understand how changing...

Fragile Narratives: Rewriting Ceramic History (2013)
DOCUMENT Citation Only David Barker.

The production process represents the beginning of the life of material things. In this paper I shall argue that the archaeology of pottery production sites is more than ‘industrial archaeology’ in the traditional sense of the term, but rather the archaeology of industrial production in the widest sense. The evidence derived from ceramic waste recovered from production site excavations informs an understanding of the life cycles of those products which progressed beyond the factory gate to the...


The Industry of Empire: Investigating the Spatial and Technological Organization of Angkorian Iron Production around Phnom Dek, Cambodia (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Mitch Hendrickson. Stephanie Leroy. Enrique Vega. Quan Hua. Philippe Dillmann.

Intensive surveys around Phnom Dek, the ‘Iron Mountain’, in central Cambodia have revealed the presence of a massive iron production landscape dating between the 9th and 20th centuries. Using a combination of site morphology, spatial distribution, field pXRF analysis and in-slag radiocarbon datin,g this paper attempts to reconstruct these industrial-scale iron smelting practices with particular emphasis on the Angkorian period (9th to 13th c.). The results will inform on the localized...


INTERACTION, BOUNDARIES AND IDENTITIES: A MULTISCALAR APPROACH TO THE ORGANIZATIONAL SCALE OF PUEBLO IV ZUNI SOCIETY (2004)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Deborah Huntley.

Across the northern Southwest, the Pueblo IV period (A.D. 1275-1400) was a time of dramatic change in settlement patterns, religious configurations, and social relationships, leading to the constant redefinition of social boundaries and identities and the establishment of multiple social connections. This dissertation explores the spatial and social scales at which residents of Zuni region nucleated villages focused social interactions and defined social boundaries and identities. This is...

Large-Scale Production of Basic Commodities at Salinas de los Nueve Cerros, Guatemala: Implications for Ancient Maya Political Economy (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Brent Woodfill.

Salinas de los Nueve Cerros is a major Precolumbian Maya city that grew around the only non-coastal salt source in the Maya lowlands. Residents of the city were able to transform the neighborhoods adjacent to and atop the salt dome into a large-scale production operation with the capacity to produce over 10,000 metric tons of salt a year, which were then distributed throughout the western lowlands via the Chixoy, Pasión, and Usumacinta river networks. By the Late Classic period, the city had...

Portuguese olive jars. Production and distribution (2018)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Ricardo C Silva. Tânia M Casimiro. Sarah Newstead.

For many years, archaeologists believed that the type of jar known as an 'olive jar' was exclusively made in Southern Spain. The possibility that Portuguese kilns also produced these jars was not considered, despite these botijas, being frequent references in Portuguese documents, particularly in reference to ships' cargos. Until recently only a few olive jar sherds had been recovered in Portugal and, although we suspected a possible production due to the similarities between some olive jar...


Producing an Empire: Household Production and Market Expansion at Postclassic and Colonial Xaltocan, Mexico (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Lisa Overholtzer.

Archaeologists have long been interested in household production and consumption, regional economic interactions, and the development and expansion of trade networks, particularly with the rise of states and empires. This research, however, has often focused on top-down political-economic processes in which state-level elite actors condition economic activity. Put simply, “states”—and by extension, their leaders—intensify household craft production, facilitate exchange, and redirect the flow of...


Production, Consumption, and Multicrafting in the Formative Mixteca Alta, Mexico (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Jeffrey Blomster. Victor E. Salazar.

The importance of the household in domestic production and consumption has been demonstrated throughout Formative Mesoamerica. It is the success of the household’s domestic economy that determines its survival. Focusing primarily on lithic artifacts, we explore locations in Formative Etlatongo, in the Mixteca Alta of Oaxaca, Mexico, that represent production and consumption of lithic tools and objects. Using ratios that compare lithic frequencies with ceramic frequencies from the same contexts,...

PROJECT Uploaded by: Justin DiVirgilio

Phase III data recovery and subsequent investigations for Section 106 compliance in Albany, NY. The project focused on recovery of archaeological data from three colonial and early federal contexts. The first two were a brickyard and brickmaker's house from the 17th century. The house was built in the 1630s to lease to a brickmaker; it was burned and rebuilt in the 1650s and finally abandoned about 1686. The brickyard operated from about 1654 until the late 1680s. The third context was a rum...
