Aerial Remote Sensing Techniques in Archeology (1977)
Today the term remote sensing is generally understood as a technique for the acquisition of environmental data by means of non-contact instruments operating in various regions of the electromagnetic spectrum from air and space platforms. The resultant information may be in the form of a pictorial record or digitized data on tape. In a larger context, however, remote sensing can be considered as a discipline in and of itself with its own peculiar methods, objectives and goals. In this...
Archaeological Overview and Assessment of the Cape Cod National Seashore, Massachusetts (1997)
Previous archeological and relevant documentary research at the Cape Cod National Seashore is reviewed and evaluated. The Cape Cod National Seashore is located on what is known as the outer Cape, an area whose history goes back thousands of years, when the area's marine, estuarine, and terrestrial resources, all located in proximity to one another, drew Native Americans here. The area was an important center of Native American life into the seventeenth century, when it was the homeland of...

The site today encompasses nearly nine acres bordering on the Salem waterfront that contain a variety of historic structures, including seventeenth- through...

Cultural Resources of the Aleutian Region Volume I and II (1977)
There are many problems inherent in attempting to fully assess the cultural resources of an area such as that encompassed in the boundaries of the Aleut Corporation. While there are many things which bind the area together into a unified whole, there are also many differences which must be taken into consideration. Yet both the differences and the unifying aspects are, in large part, caused by the geographic location and environmental effects of the region upon its inhabitants. Volume II of...

Lake Champlain Underwater Cultural Resources Survey - Volume VI: 2001 Results and Volume VII: 2002 Results (2002)
The introduction of zebra mussels in the early 1990s and the inevitable approaching infestation of quagga mussels seriously threaten Lake Champlain's underwater cultural resources. These non-native aquatic nuisance species endanger the preservation of submerged cultural resources, obscure them, and hinder their documentation and study. Mussel colonies also threaten to degrade underwater cultural resources physically because of their weight and corrosive action. As of this writing, no effective...
Lake Champlain Underwater Cultural Resources Survey - Volume VIII: 2003 Results and Volume IX: 2004 Results (2007)
The introduction of zebra mussels in the early 1990s and the inevitable approaching infestation of quagga mussels (Dreissena polymorpha) seriously threaten Lake Champlain's underwater cultural resources. These non-native aquatic nuisance species endanger the preservation of submerged cultural resources, obscure them, and hinder their documentation and study. In studying this issue, the Lake Champlain Maritime Museum determined that one positive reaction to the situation would be to locate and...
Long Branch Lake Survey 1974-1978
The Long Branch Lake Survey 1974–1978 was authorized under the Flood Control Act of 1965 (Grantham 1986:1). The investigation was initiated because the construction of Long Branch Lake would directly impact and result in the loss of significant archaeological data. Since preservation was unfeasible, the USACE, Kansas City District, contracted with Northeast Missouri State University to recover archaeological data in order to mitigate the effects of construction. Between the summer of 1974 and...
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...
