Additive Technologies Group Midlevel Research Design (1983)

DOCUMENT [ID: 374737] Eric Blinman.

This document is an extension of work begun by William A. Lucius, and its substance owes much to his foresight in the design of the Dolores Archaeological Program ceramic analysis system. Scott Travis authored a draft research design for ceramics which was helpful during the writing of portions of the present version. Dean Wilson and Rob Waterworth provided intense discussions of the interpretation of ceramic data, and their arguments and ideas have shaped and continue to shape...


The Anasazi Origins Project Digital Archives Initiative

PROJECT [ID: 376740] David M. Plaza.

The Anasazi Origins Project (AOP) was led by Cynthia Iriwn-Williams to investigate the antecedents of Ancestral Puebloans, which she called the Oshara Tradition, in the Arroyo Cuervo Region of northwestern New Mexico. This project was fundamental to the understanding of the Archaic period in the northern Southwest at a time when this area was understudied. One result of this monumental investigation is the enormous collection of artifacts, ecofacts, and contextual documents from its field...

The Archeological Excavations at Willow Beach, Arizona (1961)

DOCUMENT [ID: 393909] Albert H. Schroeder.

Willow Beach, a prehistoric camp site excavated by the National Park Service, is located on a river terrace 15 mi. south of Hoover Dam on the Colorado River. This site was occupied sporadically over many years by several groups of people. It was not the permanent village of a sedentary group. The materials and tools left by the various people who camped at Willow Beach were periodically covered by sediments and silts laid down by the Colorado River during seasons of flood. As a result, the...

Botanical Resources: Pollen (1985)

DATASET [ID: 6242] Uploaded by: Jesse Clark

The pollen dataset contains basic provenience data for each pollen sample collected. These data are accompanied by taxonomic classification and the grain count per taxon. Detailed locational information can be obtained by linking this dataset with the provenience dataset. Variables for the corn dataset have already been described by Wilshusen et al. (1999). In most cases, their descriptions are suitable for use as metadata and have been repeated almost verbatim here. Selected resources from the...


The Case for Archiving Legacy Archaeological Collections into tDAR: Digitizing Approaches for Preservation, Dissemination, and Access (2013)

DOCUMENT [ID: 391359] David M. Plaza.

Paper documents are a time proven technology for the preservation and dissemination of information. The advent of computers and the Internet have enhanced some basic concepts for which paper documents have traditionally been used, such as the management of information on an external platform. Some benefits of using computers are the speed and ease of aggregating and disseminating information. This research will review preservation methods on how to ingest a legacy archaeological collection into...


Ceramics: Temporal-Spatial Dataset (1988)

DATASET [ID: 6039] Uploaded by: Jesse Clark

The Additive Technologies Group (ATG) was responsible for supporting the broad research goals of the DAP through the implementation of mid-level research design governing the collection and analysis of data from “material culture that results from the technological combinations of a variety of raw materials” (Blinman 1986a:57). While these items include worked vegetal material (e.g., basketry and textiles), much of the work performed by the ATG relates to a large ceramic assemblage including...

Chronometric Dating (1985)

DATASET [ID: 6206] Uploaded by: Jesse Clark

The results of chronometric analysis on special specimen samples collected for dating can be found in this dataset. Samples are linked to basic provenience data such as site and field specimen number. The temporal range for each sample will be indicated by variables for earliest and latest dates. These variables give the innermost and outermost dates of wood submitted for dendrochronological dating and their corresponding Tree-Ring Lab symbols indicating how close the date provided is to the...

Digitizing The Anasazi Origins Project: A Geodatabase (2013)

DOCUMENT [ID: 391428] David M. Plaza.

Archaeology is faced with the inheritance problem of managing legacy collections, partly due to the high expense of maintaining them. Often these datasets are unorganized, thus rendering them underutilized, and difficult to properly preserve or to integrate into the current archaeological dialogue. Unfortunately, this problem is a common issue. To address this problem, an examination of the condition of the records and artifacts of legacy archaeological collections is needed. In this thesis,...


The Dolores Archaeological Program

PROJECT [ID: 5398] Robert A. Bye. Christine K. Robinson. David A. Breternitz. Allen E. Kane. Steven E. James. Timothy A. Kohler. William D. Lipe. Bureau of Reclamation.

From 1978 until 1985 the University of Colorado contracted with the Bureau of Reclamation (Contract No. 8-07-40-S0562) to mitigate the adverse impact of a large water impoundment project on the cultural resources in the project area. This complex and evolving long-term mitigation plan known as the Dolores Archaeological Program (DAP) has been called a “truly unique chapter in American archaeology” (Breternitz 1993:118) and was applauded by Lipe (1998:2) for its ability to “increase the power and...


Dolores Archaeological Program Technical Reports, DAP-005: Excavations at Sagehill Hamlet (Site 5MT2198), a Basketmaker III/Pueblo I habitation site. (1981)

DOCUMENT [ID: 394716] Nancy J. Hewitt.

Sagehill Hamlet (Site 5MT2198), a small Anasazi habitation located approximately 8 km northwest of Dolores, Colorado, was excavated during the summer of 1978 as part of the Dolores Project Cultural Resources Mitigation Program. Field operations were conducted during the months of August and September; a University of Colorado crew excavated and recorded a small pithouse and associated surface features.

Dolores Archaeological Program Technical Reports, DAP-024: Prehistoric Archaeology of the Sagehen Flats Locality (1982)

DOCUMENT [ID: 134315] David H. Greenwald.

The Sagehen Flats Locality is 1 of 16 localities contained within the Escalante Sector. It is located in southwest Colorado approximately 6 km northwest of Dolores, Colorado. The Sagehen Flats Locality differs from surrounding localities in that it is an area of gentle slopes and small knolls. Its drainages feed the Sagehen Marsh, which eventually drains into the Dolores River to the east. The first prehistoric use of this area has been dated to the Archaic Tradition (5000 B.C.-A .D. 500)...
