Amerind Pleistocene Lake I, The Archaeology of the Willcox Playa (1985)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Anne I. Woosley. D. Carol Kriebel.

Our 1985 survey of the Willcox Playa environs resulted in a wealth of Archeological data, the findings of which are presented in the following chapters. We have added to the Archaic database from the Cazador through San Pedro stages of the Cochise sequence, and suggest a tentative Archaic settlement system integrated with local habitats and accompanying resources. Though it is a partial picture, the ceramic period settlement system is also beginning to emerge. Our knowledge of the early ceramic...

An Analysis of Two Privy Contexts from the Manalapan Village House Site (28-Mo-349) (2006)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Susan Jacobucci.

Three soil samples from two mid-to-late eighteenth-century privies excavated at the Manalapan Village House Site in New Jersey were submitted to the Fiske Center for parasitological analysis. Despite the addition of a Lycopodium spore tracer to the samples to ensure against analyst error, no parasite ova were recovered from the three samples. Additional parasitological processing using the Fecasol flotation method was undertaken, as well as an examination of the remainder of the soil samples for...

The Anthropogenic Landscape of Las Capas, an Early Agricultural Irrigation Community in Southern Arizona (2015)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Uploaded by: Rachel Fernandez

Las Capas, AZ AA:12:111 (ASM), so named for its deeply stratified deposits, dates primarily to the San Pedro phase of the Early Agricultural period, circa 1200-800 B.C. Later, more sporadic occupation of the site extends from the Cienega phase (800 B.C.-A.D. 50) through the Hohokam sequence and the Protohistoric period. Occupation prior to approximately 2100 B.C. is suggested by several radiocarbon dates on maize found redeposited in younger contexts. Recent excavations at the site and its...
