Archival Survey Feature or Collection Forms (2012)
These are pdf files of the original survey feature/collection forms. Each survey feature was recorded on a form and assigned a unique number, and, if the feature was collected, that number pertains to the surface collection. Some features have more than one collection, in which case additional feature/collection numbers were assigned. Rarely numbers were subsequently de-assigned, and might then be assigned to a different feature/collection later, but occasionally numbers were not used...
Archival Survey Field Forms (2012)
These pdf files show forms for fields where survey was conducted and the locations of features/collections within the field, along with vegetation and other observations. These files are only available with special permission because those from seasons when global positioning equipment was used have UTM coordinates. Those from survey using aerial mosaics sometimes show roads or towns identifiable on maps.

These laboratory forms record figurine classifications.
Archival Survey Misc Artifact Forms (2012)
These pdfs contain the original laboratory coding forms for a variety of miscellaneous artifacts, such as spindle whorls, incensarios, colanders,clay balls, and other unusual ceramic forms. Artifacts related to ceramic production are included.
Archival Survey Obsidian Forms (2012)
Obsidian coding forms from the PALM regional survey and associated notes. The obsidian coding was directed by Lynette Heller.
Archival Survey Pottery Forms (2012)
These archival forms recorded pottery types and attributes for survey collections. Some show updates or corrections when pottery was reexamined, but a few updates were made directly on electronic database or excel files.
Chert Biface Coding Sheets (2013)
A.J. Vonarx recorded attributes of chert bifacial artifacts, apparently all are projectile points.
Dainzú-Macuilxóchitl Archaeological Project
This archive contains all of the data derived from field research at the site of Dainzú-Macuilxóchitl in the Oaxaca Valley of Mexico. This is a multi-year project consisting of intensive survey and mapping, as well as comprehensive excavations. The mapping and survey are designed to provide a detailed topographic map of the site and provide a basic temporal and spatial settlement description. Intensive excavations are focused on residential areas. This project has been financially supported...

Marshland of Cities: Deltaic Landscapes and the Evolution of Early Mesopotamian Civilization (2003)
Prevailing theories of the evolution of early complex societies in southern Mesopotamia presume a uniform, arid landscape transited by Tigris and Euphrates distributaries. These theories hold that it was the seventh millennium BCE introduction of irrigation technologies from the northern alluvium to the south that began the punctuated evolution of Mesopotamian irrigation schemes. In this view, irrigation-dependent agro-pastoral production was the primary stimulus to urbanization and, millennia...
Neutron Activation Analysis of Ceramics from Egypt
This project pertains to the compositional analysis of ceramic materials from Egypt. These data were generated by neutron activation analysis (NAA) at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (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.
Neutron Activation Analysis of Ceramics from Greece
This project pertains to the compositional analysis of ceramic materials from Greece. These data were generated by neutron activation analysis (NAA) at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (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. Data for some samples are drawn from a previous LBNL-digitization project at the University of...
