Mission (Site Type Keyword)
1-13 (13 Records)
Documentary evidence from the southwestern region of North America indicates that Spanish missionaries attempted to alter the daily lives of native peoples through the introduction of Eurasian domesticated animals and animal husbandry practices. However, our understanding of the degree to which these efforts were successful is hindered by a dearth of zooarchaeological evidence. Excavations at 18th-century missions in present-day northern Sonora and southern Arizona provide an opportunity to...
Archaeological Investigations of a Mission Period Shell Midden 9MC23, Sapelo Island, Georgia (2009)
In 2004, University of Kentucky archaeologists started a new research project designed to assess the nature, intensity, and extent of Mission period activity in and around Shell Ring II in the northern portion of the Sapelo Shell Ring complex (9Mc23) (Jefferies and Thompson 2005) (Figure 3). We have employed a diversified data recovery strategy incorporating geophysical survey, shovel probing, soil auguring, metal detector survey, and test unit excavation (Jefferies and Moore 2009).
An Archaeological Survey of the Santa Cruz River Valley from the Headwaters to the Town of Tubac in Arizona (1941)
The Santa Cruz River is located in south-central Arizona in the Santa Cruz and Pima Counties. A short stretch of the rivers lies in northern Sonora and forms a big horseshoe bend as the river cuts across the foot of the Patagonia Mountains from the San Rafael Valley into the Santa Cruz Valley proper. In the San Rafael Valley, where the headwaters of the river are found, the Santa Cruz passes few towns or villages. The first one is Lochiel, a small cluster of houses on the International...

Pimería Alta Missions Fauna
This project consists of zooarchaeological data from two Spanish mission sites on the land of the O'odham people located in what is now southern Arizona and northern Sonora, Mexico. This region was referred to by the Spanish as the Pimería Alta. Dozens of Spanish colonial missions were established in the Pimería Alta region beginning in the 1690s by Jesuit missionary Father Eusebio Kino. Missions were established within existing Native American communities. While the ostensible motivation for...
POLLEN, PHYTOLITH, MACROFLORAL, PROTEIN, AND ORGANIC RESIDUE (FTIR) ANALYSES ON SAMPLES FROM THE MISSION SAN GABRIEL GARDEN COMPLEX, SITE CA-LAN-184H, CALIFORNIA (2012)
Samples were examined from excavations in the Bishop’s Garden area at the San Gabriel Mission Archaeological Site, CA-LAN-184H, in southern California as part of the Alameda Corridor East Construction Authority’s (ACE) San Gabriel Trench Grade Separation project. This area contains a large, dense, partially intact Mission period (1769-1834) artifact deposit and two substantial archaeological features associated with occupation of the San Gabriel Mission. A total of 83 column samples from a Water...
Rendering Economies: Native American Labor and Secondary Animal Products in the Eighteenth-Century Pimería Alta (2011)
While the ostensible motivation for Spanish missionization in the Americas was religious conversion, missions were also critical to the expansion of European economic institutions in the sixteenth through nineteenth centuries. Native American labor in mission contexts was recruited in support of broader programs of colonialism, mercantilism, and resource extraction. Archaeological research throughout North America demonstrates the importance and extent of the integration of Native labor into...
