1-7 (7 Records)
SRI conducted an archaeological survey for ring-midden features using lidar data in three localities in the foothills of the Guadalupe Mountains and Sacramento Mountains in southeastern New Mexico. The unique shape and prominence of ring middens were identified by remote sensing data and then verified in the field within the sampled areas. The result supports the use of lidar data for project scoping and landscape-level studies, but cannot substitute for Section 106 inventory due to the...
Archaeological Prospection for Ring-Midden Features in Southeastern New Mexico Using Lidar Data: An Experimental Study (2015)
The final report presents the methodology and results of this experimental study to see if remote sensing data alone is able to identify the presence of ring-midden features. Lidar data obtained for sample areas was then verified on the ground, and found to be successful in identifying all but disturbed or low-profile ring middens. Therefore, the use of lidar data is appropriate for project scoping and landscape area studies, but not as an alternative to Section 106 survey.
An Archaeological Survey of a Rail Loading Site and Conveyor and Communications Line by Black Mesa, Preliminary Report (1969)
The Museum of Northern Arizona investigated a proposed rail loading site and conveyor and communication line right-of-way to provide archaeological clearance for the Salt River Project Agricultural Improvement and Power District. The reconnaissance was performed by Alexander J. Lindsay, Jr., Curator of Anthropology, and Peter J. Pilles, Jr., Salvage Archaeologist, on December 18 and 19, 1969. The rail loading site is located in the Klethla Valley adjacent to the Four Corners Pipeline, 0.8 miles...
Excavations on Black Mesa, 1981: A Descriptive Report (1983)
This volume, the eighth of the Black Mesa descriptive excavation reports, presents the results of archaeological field work performed during the 1981 field season. The work was sponsored by Peabody Coal Company, Arizona Division, and took place in the Peabody Coal Company Black Mesa leasehold on northern Black Mesa, Arizona. The volume is organized to provide information in four general categories: legal compliance, synthesis of research, description of field work, and presentation of data. The...
An Experimental Project to Conduct Digital Survey for Ring-Midden Features Using Lidar Data (2015)
This brochure explains to the public the cultural significance of ring-midden features, the prospect of using remote sensing data to locate them, and an outline of SRI's modeling study to show how digital survey data can assist archaeologists in defining the features and understanding patterns of the past.
The Kayenta Anasazi: Archaeological Investigations Along the Black Mesa Railroad Corridor, Volume 1 - Specialists' Reports (1986)
In 1969 the Salt River Project contracted the Museum of Northern Arizona (MNA) to excavate the prehistoric and ethnohistoric remains in the vicinity of the Navajo Generating Station (Page, Arizona), along the Black Mesa-Lake Powell railroad corridor, and in the immediate vicinity of the coal loading facility at the east end of the rail line south of Navajo National Monument. One hundred and twenty-three sites were identified, with 51 of those prehistoric sites excavated or tested. (The...
MACROFLORAL AND AMS RADIOCARBON ANALYSIS OF SAMPLES FROM LA 2894, AN JORNADA MOGOLLON SITE LOCATED IN DOÑA ANA COUNTY, NEW MEXICO (2020)
Site LA 2894, a prehistoric, structural site, comprises numerous fire-cracked rock (FCR) features and a large artifact assemblage. This temporary Jornada Mogollon, Early to Late Pueblo (A.D. 900–1200) campsite contains evidence of activities focused on tool manufacture and resource processing. Two sediment samples, collected from levels 2 and 3 of Feature 1, an FCR assemblage, were submitted for macrofloral and AMS radiocarbon analyses.
