This thesis follows the palaeopathological and social history of the turkey, Meleagris gallopavo, over a thousand years (AD 900- c. 1900) and illuminates the evolving nature of turkey-human relationships. Interdependent analyses of zooarchaeological data and historical documentary sources were undertaken for this project. Palaeopathological and metrical data were gathered from turkey elements excavated from archaeological sites in the American Southwest, the UK and Éire; these were used with...

General Resources from the Long Term Vulnerability and Transformation Project
Long-Term Coupled Socioecological Change in the American Southwest and Northern Mexico: Each generation transforms an inherited social and environmental world and leaves it as a legacy to succeeding generations. Long-term interactions among social and ecological processes give rise to complex dynamics on multiple temporal and spatial scales – cycles of change followed by relative stasis, followed by change. Within the cycles are understandable patterns and irreducible uncertainties; neither...
Gran Quivira Archaeological Project
Excavations at Gran Quivira (LA 120) in the Salinas area of central New Mexico by Dr. Katherine Spielmann, 1984-1986.
Gran Quivira faunal data (2003)
Faunal data from the Gran Quivira archaeological project.
Gran Quivira Glaze Ware Database (2015)
This dataset contains information on the glaze ware sherds from the 1984-86 field seasons at Gran Quivira Pueblo, New Mexico. All fill was screened through quarter inch mesh.
Gran Quivira Groundstone Dataset (1985)
This dataset is for the groundstone excavated during the 1985 field season at Gran Quivira Pueblo. The groundstone from the 1986 season has yet to be recorded. All groundstone from this project is housed at the National Park Service's Western Archaeological and Conservation Center in Tucson.
Gran Quivira Limestone Lithic Database (1985)
This dataset is for the limestone lithics excavated in the 1985 field season at Gran Quivira. The sample was large in size and we felt we had learned enough about limestone lithics that the 1986 lithics were not analyzed and we likely were not as careful collecting them as in 1985.
Gran Quivira Lithics Database (1986)
This database is the chipped stone excavated in the 1984-86 field seasons at Gran Quivira Pueblo. N.B.: although it is not a column in this database, some analyses using these data would have recoded all obsidian as '1', all local chert types as '2', and all quartzite as '3.'
