Culture and Ecology of Chaco Canyon and the San Juan Basin (2005)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Frances Joan Mathien.

Today Chaco Canyon is a tourist and research destination, but this was not always so. We now know that Archaic hunters and gatherers camped there over several millennia; ancestors of historic Pueblo people dependent on maize agriculture created the masonry structures for which Chaco Canyon National Monument was established. The canyon is now home to only a few National Park Service (NPS) employees, who live amidst Navajo sheep- and cattle-ranchers whose ancestors came to this area after the...

Israel and Palestinian Territories Ceramics: Compositional and Descriptive Data (2014)
DATASET Matthew Boulanger. Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.

This dataset contains compositional (elemental abundance) and descriptive data for a total of 2543 ceramic and clay specimens from Israel analyzed by the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL). These data were generated by neutron activation analysis (NAA) at LBNL between the late 1960s and early 1990s. Data from the LBNL were transferred to the Archaeometry Laboratory at the University of Missouri, where they were digitized for distribution through tDAR. Compositional data for some sherds...

When Trash Becomes Treasure: A Postclassic Maya Obsidian Core Cache from Nojpeten (2014)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Angela McArdle.

This paper examines an obsidian cache offering excavated near the corner of a Postclassic Maya platform structure in Nojpeten, on the island of Flores, Guatemala. The cache consists of approximately 190 obsidian prismatic blade cores and core fragments, but the original number of cores placed in the cache likely fell between 173 and 182, with a best estimate of 177, 178, or 180. The cores were found about 20 cm southwest of the structure in a circular concentration measuring approximately 35 cm...
