Aurora Site

PROJECT Dean Snow.

The Aurora site was previously named the Harris site after the family name of the landowner. Shovel testing was carried out at this site from July 25, 1978 to Aug. 3, 1978. Crews returned and continued shovel testing the following summer from July 25, 1979 to July 30, 1979. Shovel test pits were excavated throughout the test area which encompasses the two separate swampy areas on the Harris farm. A single artifact was uncovered by the SUNY at Albany 1978 summer investigation. This bovid...

Continuity and Change: Part 2 (1997)

DOCUMENT Donn Grenda.

Part 2 provides all of the necessary information by which the analyses, syntheses, and conclusions can be judged, including detailed unit, feature, stratum, and facie descriptions. All field methods and results are also presented here, including those for the geomorphological study.


Continuity and Change: Part 3 (1997)

DOCUMENT Donn Grenda.

Part 3 presents the analyses of ecofacts. These studies provide the bridge between the environmental background provided in Part 2 and the material culture studies in Part 4. Ecofactual analyses are aimed at helping us understand subsistence patterns throughout prehistory. Both the paleobotanical studies and the faunal remains demonstrate 8,500 years of continuity.


Continuity and Change: Part 4 (1997)

DOCUMENT Donn Grenda.

Part 4 presents the analyses of artifacts. Worked bone and lithic analyses inform on technology, whereas shell ornaments and beads provide hints about the more personal aspects of prehistoric life. Although minor changes in material culture emerge, the clear pattern is 8,500 years on continuity. Combined with the analyses presented in Part 3, these chapters provide the data to interpret site structure and address many of the research issues outline in Part 2.


Continuity and Change: Part 5 (1997)

DOCUMENT Donn Grenda.

Part 5 synthesizes the information presented in the report and places the site in its regional context. Because the site provides considerable time depth, issues such as change in site structure and social organization are addressed. This part demonstrates the unique nature of the Elsinore site both from a culture history perspective and as a database for archaeological research. We use this high-information site to reevaluate prehistory and to explore the challenges hunter-gathers faced over...


The Courson Archeological Projects: Final 1985 and Preliminary 1986 (1987)

DOCUMENT David T. Hughes. A. Alicia Hughes-Jones.

In 1984, Harold Courson acquired the Sam Handly ranch in the Wolf Creek Valley. For years the Handly ranch was famous for a series of stone-outlined features known as the Buried City. Appreciation of these archeological sites led Courson, in 1985, to retain archeologist David T. Hughes for an assessment of the scientific value of two sites endangered by erosion . The work has since expanded to include excavation at other sites and a survey of the Courson properties. Based on the findings of the...
