CLIMATE MODELING AND PHYTOLITH ANALYSIS OF FEATURE FILL AND SEDIMENTS ASSOCIATED WITH ROCKSHELTER SITE, 15BR247, KENTUCKY (2010)
Feature fill and stratigraphic soil samples were submitted for phytolith analysis from a rockshelter site, 15BR247, located in Breathitt County, Kentucky. Phytolith analysis was undertaken to better understand what the environment was like during the occupation of the site, and to identify any microbotanical remains from areas within and in front of the shelter. Macrophysical climate modeling was employed to generate a model of past climate for the area.
From Big Game Hunter to Forager on the Northwestern Plains Smithsonian Institution / River Basin Survey (1967)
In earlier issues of Progress the gains in knowledge of the village dwellers of the Missouri River have been discussed and described. For this report attention will be directed to the earlier, technologically less sophisticated, hunter and gatherers who inhabited the Plains from about 2,000-7,000 years ago. This document contains a brief overview of those who inhabited the Plains and calls for a full investigation of the mountain refuge hypothesis.

MACROBOTANICAL IDENTIFICATION AND PHYTOLITH ANALYSIS OF MATTING MATERIAL FROM THE EAGLE POINT SITE, 5RB4662, COLORADO (2008)
Macrofloral and phytolith analysis was conducted on a sample of matting material recovered from the Eagle Point Site (5RB4662), a rockshelter/overhang located along Piceance Creek in northwest Colorado. This shelter experienced multiple occupations, with radiocarbon ages ranging from 2510 to 1010 BP. The roof/overhang has collapsed; therefore, cultural deposits are exposed and eroding away. Excavations at the site have been ongoing for several years. PRI has previously conducted archaeobotanical...
Soil samples and lithic artifacts were analyzed from two boulder rock shelters at Site AZ U:5:18(ASM) in central Arizona. A soil sample also was examined from a ramada outside the rock shelters. Diagnostic artifacts recovered from these two rock shelters suggest multiple occupations ranging from the Late Archaic through Hohokam into Yavapai/Apache. Soil samples were floated to recover charred macrofloral remains that are used to provide information concerning plant resources that were utilized...
POLLEN, CERAMIC RESIDUE, MACROFLORAL, PROTEIN, AND SHELL ANALYSIS FOR SITES IN THE ASHLEY NATIONAL FOREST, UTAH (2003)
Pollen, phytolith, starch, macrofloral, and protein residue analyses were conducted on numerous samples from a variety of archaeological sites in Ashley National Forest, Utah. Sites range In elevation from approxlmately 6100 feet to 9000 feet. In addition, a single shell was submitted for identification. Botanical analyses focused on recovery of information that might indicate economic activity. In addition, the pollen record was expected to provide information concerning local vegetation. A...
POLLEN, MACROFLORAL, AND PROTEIN RESIDUE ANALYSIS AT SITES 42WS2871 , 42WS2872, 42GA3818, 42IN1371, AND 24EM2686, SOUTHERN UTAH (2003)
Samples from five archaeological sites in southwest Utah were submitted for pollen and macrofloral analysis to provide information concerning plant resources utilized at the various sites. Artifacts from three of the sites were analyzed for possible protein residues to determine use of animal resources. Sites 42Ws2871 and 42Ws2872 are located within the city limits of St. George. Site 42Ws2871 is a rock shelter with numerous associated features. A conventional radiocarbon age of 310 ± 40 BP,...
POLLEN, PHYTOLITH, MACROFLORAL AND/OR PROTEIN RESIDUE ANALYSIS AT SITES CA-VEN-477 AND CA-VEN-920, CALIFORNIA (1997)
Two sites in Ventura County, California were sampled for pollen, phytoliths, protein residue, and macrofloral remains. Site CA-VEN-477 appears to have been occupied during the Middle to Late Period (after 1000 B.C.), and was situated on a low knoll overlooking a drainage at the mouth of a canyon. Two pollen, two phytolith, two protein residue, and four macrofloral samples were examined from this site. Pollen, phytolith, and protein residue samples were examined from the wash of a mano and an...
POLLEN, STARCH, PHYTOLITH, AND ORGANIC RESIDUE (FTIR) ANALYSIS OF PIPE CONTENTS FROM A BURIAL AT THE DARKMOLD SITE, DURANGO, COLORADO (2011)
Residue from a stone pipe associated with a human burial at the Darkmold Site near Durango, Colorado was examined for pollen, starch, and phytolith remains, as well as organic residues using Fourier Transform Infrared Spectrometry (FTIR). Organic residue analysis is used to detect molecular remains from plant and animal resources that might have been smoked and/or packed in the pipe for burial.
The Rio Ibáñez 6W site is a rockshelter located in the southern Andean region, Aisén, Chile. Deposits at the site have been dated to between approximately 6000 and 300 cal BP. Five lithic tools recovered from the site were submitted for protein residue analysis.
Proyecto de la escritura temprana. Arte, cosmovisión, y símbolo en la evolución de la complejidad mesoaméricana
Este proyecto de documentación del arte rupestre y muralismo medio formativo en el estado de Guerrero, México tiene el objetivo de creer una serie de imágenes de alta resolución además de imágenes compuestas y computacionales para facilitar estudios sobre la iconografía y la escritura temprana durante este período clave mesoamericano. Enfocamos en los sitios Oxtotitlán (Cerro Quiotepec), Juxtlahuaca, y Cahuaziziqui. This middle formative muralism and rock art documentation project in the...
