The Lower Verde Archaeological Project
PROJECT Jeffrey A. Homburg. Richard Ciolek-Torrello. Jeffrey H. Altschul. Stephanie M. Whittlesey. Steven D. Shelley. USDI Bureau of Reclamation, Phoenix Area Office.

The Lower Verde Archaeological Project (LVAP) was a four-year data recovery project conducted by Statistical Research, Inc. (SRI) in the lower Verde River region of central Arizona. The project was designed to mitigate any adverse effects to cultural resources from modifications to Horseshoe and Bartlett Dams. The Department of the Interior, Bureau of Reclamation, Arizona Project’s Office sponsored the research program in compliance with historic preservation legislation. The LVAP’s...

Pottery Study Procedures and Design Classification Codes (2002)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Christopher von Nagy.

This document summarizes laboratory procedures and the classification codes used for the construction of database records for pottery from both Proyecto Encrucijada-Pajonal (von Nagy 2003) and Proyecto Laguna Costera projects. It is comprehensive, covering pottery from all periods and includes coding for ware design and manufacturing decisions, form, and decor.


Pottery type images for the western Tabasco Coastal Plain (2008)
IMAGE Christopher von Nagy.

This set of images documents common ceramics types found at La Venta, Tabasco. The examples here were recovered from San Andrés (Barí 1), a subsidiary elite community in the Lower La Venta area of the flood plain. The ceramics at San Andrés demonstrate a range of states from refired and eroded to well-preserved. The type images presented here are of generally well-preserved examples. These types are defined in my dissertation (von Nagy 2003), and will receive full treatment in a forth coming...

Supplementary information files, Food and Society at Real Alto, an Early Formative Community in Southwest Coastal Ecuador
PROJECT Deborah M. Pearsall.

LAA article abstract: We investigate foodways at Real Alto, an early Formative (4400 to 1800 BC) Valdivia site in coastal Ecuador, through starch and phytoliths recovered from 50 stone tools from three residential and two ceremonial structures, and from 46 human dentitions, and consider how food reflects social relationships and economy of the community. Maize was important in daily meals and ceremonial foods by Middle Valdivia (2800-2400 BC), but only one component of an agricultural system...


Vanishing River Volume 4: Chapter 14: Prehistoric Settlement and Demography in the Lower Verde Region (1997)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Richard Ciolek-Torrello.

In Chapter 14, Ciolek-Torello presents one of the first full syntheses of indigenous settlement and demographic patterns in the Verde Valley, without reference to interaction in the Hohokam core area. He begins with a summary of prehistoric settlement patterns from pre-ceramic periods through the Late Classic period across the entire Transition Zone of central Arizona. He then characterizes settlement systems in the lower Verde Valley through time and describes the archaeological sites and...
