EMAP - Projectile Points - Form Coding Sheet

The Eastern Mimbres Archaeological Project (EMAP), co-directed by Drs. Margaret Nelson and Michelle Hegmon began in 1990, building upon earlier work by Nelson. EMAP focuses on the later (post-AD 1000) prehistory of the eastern Mimbres area, a portion of the Mimbres region in southwest New Mexico. In 1982 Nelson was at the University of New Mexico, Albuquerque and in the early 1990s at the State University of New York, Buffalo, and Hegmon was at New Mexico State University, Las Cruces. In 1995 both moved to Arizona State University, where they and the project reside today. Earlier work by EMAP focused on the post-AD 1150 period, specifically what is now called the Reorganization phase [1150-early 1200s] of the Postclassic period. After 1998 the project focused on the Classic period (AD 1000-1130). Key research issues include the social and ecological dynamics of reorganization, residential mobility among farmers, environmental impact and sustainable farming practices, pottery production and exchange, and community organization.

Coding Rules

Code Term Description Mapped Ontology Node
1 Triangle
2 Base Notched seems to be applied to those with a true notch and those that have a flight curve in the base
3 Corner Notched notch creates a stem to the base which is narrower than sides of point. Notch inserted parallel to a slight angle to the point's center line.
4 Side Notched notch is at a 90 degree angle to the center line of point, base/corner is still widest portion of point
5 Side and Base Notched
6 3+ side notches A typicall side notched point with 1 or more additional notches up one or both sides of point
7 base notched plus 3+ side notches Like code 6 but also has a base notch
9 Giant Spear Point
10 Diamond Shaped
