  • Round Mountain and Other Cerros de Trincheras of the Upper Gila River, Arizona (2016)
    DOCUMENT Full-Text Mary Whisenhunt. Karen Adams. A.C. MacWilliams. John R. Roney. Robert J. Hard.

    2016 Southwest Symposium Poster. Recent work in the Upper Gila River Valley of Arizona documents two Early Agricultural period cerros de trincheras and a riverine residential site. This presentation summarizes recent field work and addresses issues related to chronology, the role of agriculture, and warfare. Early Agricultural period cerros de trincheras have been previously documented in the Río Casas Grandes and in the Tucson Basin. The Upper Gila River Valley sites expand this phenomenon to a...

  • Terminal Pleistocene Volcanic Eruptions at Zuni Salt Lake, West-Central New Mexico, USA (2016)
    DOCUMENT Full-Text Jill Onken. Steven Forman.

    2016 Southwest Symposium Poster. Abstract: Zuni Salt Lake, a maar in the Red Hill–Quemado volcanic field in New Mexico, holds great significance in the oral traditions of a handful of tribes including the Zuni and Hopi. We redefined the age of volcanic eruptions at Zuni Salt Lake using radiocarbon and optically stimulated luminescence dating. Four radiocarbon ages on wood charcoal indicate two main eruptive phases: a violent strombolian eruption at ~13.3 ka and a later, predominantly...

  • Using Non-Invasive Technologies to Identify Multiple Paint Recipes on Hohokam Pottery (2016)
    DOCUMENT Full-Text Lindsay Shepard. Aaron Wright.

    As the emphasis on preservation archaeology increases, the application of non-destructive technologies to artifact analysis is becoming more relevant and commonplace. We employ three such techniques, decorrelation stretch (DStretch), x-ray fluorescence (XRF), and Fourier-transform Raman spectroscopy (FT-Raman), to investigate multiple paint hues found on a single pre-Classic Hohokam Red-on-buff sherd. We apply DStretch to visually enhance the paint and confirm the presence of two red hues. The...

  • Walnuts as a Potential Paint Source for Roosevelt Redware in the Cliff Valley of New Mexico (2016)
    DOCUMENT Full-Text Alexandra Norwood. Will Russell. Allen Denoyer.

    Ceramic analysis is an invaluable tool for archaeology, and one that has been particularly useful in the U.S. Southwest. Roosevelt Redware, also called Salado Polychrome, dates from about 1280 to 1450 C.E. and is found throughout much of Arizona and New Mexico. The pottery tradition is a hallmark of the Salado Phenomenon, and its analysis has been applied to many questions, including those concerned with technology, exchange, identity, religion, and migration. The black paint on Roosevelt...
