40RD299, TN Faunal Data (2015)

DATASET

Ancient Native American use of caves in the Eastern Woodlands occurred throughout the entire span of regional prehistory; however, the ways that these natural features were used varied considerably over time. To date only 25 cave sites containing deposits dated to the Archaic period (ca. 10,000–3000 B.P.) are recorded in the state of Tennessee, representing just 0.4% of the total known Archaic sites. In 2014 the authors conducted a salvage operation, bucket auger survey, and limited testing at...


An Analysis of Pollen from Two Archaeological Sites in Windsor, Broome County, New York (2009)

DOCUMENT

Twenty two soil samples from two prehistoric (Middle Archaic to Woodland) Native American sites in Broome County, New York, were submitted to the Fiske Center for palynological analysis. Within these samples, 72 taxa were identified, providing evidence of a changing landscape which was shaped by human land management strategies, including controlled burning and the intentional cultivation of maize (Zea mays) as a food crop.

Archeological Survey of Trail Maintenance, Revegetation, and Prescribed Burn Areas in Bryce Canyon National Park (1992)

DOCUMENT

During 1988 a survey was conducted of 704 acres along trails and 433 acres of proposed burn areas, covering a total of 1,137 acres (Utah Project #U88-NA-184N). Eight prehistoric sites and seven historic sites were recorded. The prehistoric sites are small- to medium-sized lithic scatters, each of which appears to have resulted from one or several episodes of temporary use. Several characteristics of settlement strategies and lithic material use patterns have been observed in analysis of the...

The River Farm site (18AN881) exhibits Early Archaic through Late Woodland components, as well as historic use. It is situated on the eastern bank of the Patuxent River in Anne Arundel County, Maryland. Several features were observed, two of which were sampled for analysis. Two ceramic sherds exhibiting charred food crust and two closely associated charred botanic fragments were submitted for AMS radiocarbon analysis. Microscopic analysis of the contents of the charred food crust from both...

Dust Cave Site, AL (1LU496) Project

PROJECT

Faunal data from Dust Cave Alabama, Renee B. Walker dissertation (University of Tennessee, 1998). Archaic deposits from Dust Cave date between and 5,200 years ago with four distinct Archaic occupations. These include the Early Side-Notched and Kirk Stemmed components (Early Archaic), and the Eva/Morrow Mountain component and Seven Mile Island phase (Middle Archaic). The preservation, and subsequent recovery, of faunal material at the site is exceptional, with an abundance of small fish and...

EARLY-MIDDLE ARCHAIC SUBSISTENCE STRATEGIES: CHANGES IN FAUNAL EXPLOITATION AT THE KOSTER SITE (1982)

DOCUMENT

This study uses faunal remains from Horizons 11-8A of the Koster Site, Greene County, Illinois, as the basis for examining subsistence change during the Early-Middle Archaic transition in the Midwest. Two related issues are considered. First, did significant changes in subsistence strategies occur? Second, what were the probable causes of subsistence change? Current evidence from the lower Illinois River Valley suggests that subsistence change is closely related to changes in settlement or...

Generalized and Specialized Resource Utilization During the Archaic Period: Implications of the Koster Site Faunal Record (1986)

DOCUMENT

Abstract - Traditionally, changes in niche breadth during the Archaic period have been depicted as involving a shift from specialized resource use during the Early Archaic to a more generalized resource use by the Middle Archaic. The faunal record from the Early and Middle Archaic levels of the Koster site does not support this scenario. Evaluation of the Koster case suggests that some modification to common assumptions about the determinants of niche breadth is in order. Not only should the...
