Botanical Resources: Pollen

Part of the Dolores Archaeological Program project

Year: 1985

» Downloads & Basic Metadata

Summary

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 Selected resources from the collection of published and unpublished DAP reports may have been used for clarification in some cases and will be appropriately referenced.

An overview of this database is provided in the chapter "Botanical Resources" by Joel Tyberg in The Dolores Legacy: A User's Guide to the Dolores Archaeological Program Data, edited by R. H. Wilshusen et al., 1999.

Table Information: dap-polln10

Column Name Data Type Type Category Coding Sheet Ontology
count This variable indicates the pollen count of a particular sample.
BIGINT  Count Pollen : Count none none
fs The most basic type of provenience data recorded for all information obtained during DAP fieldwork is the field specimen number. These values are sequentially assigned to unique vertical and horizontal locations within each site.
BIGINT  Uncoded Value Lookup : Code none none
taxon This variable provides the taxonomic classification for each sample.
VARCHAR  Uncoded Value Pollen : Taxon none none
pollnno This variable provides a unique identification number for each pollen sample.
BIGINT  Uncoded Value Lookup : Code none none
csiteid The Anasazi Heritage Center has given each specimen several unique codes, including csiteid, to facilitate management of their DAP collections. This value denotes the entry's corresponding Smithsonian site number.
VARCHAR  Uncoded Value Provenience and Context : Horizontal Location none none
cdept The Anasazi Heritage Center has given each specimen several unique codes, including cdept, to facilitate management of their DAP collections. This value specifies the tool department to which each record belongs.
VARCHAR  Uncoded Value Lookup : Description none none
caccnid The Anasazi Heritage Center has given each specimen several unique codes, including caccnid, to facilitate management of their DAP collections. The first digits of this value indicate the year that it was accessioned.
DOUBLE  Uncoded Value Lookup : Code none none
cobjectid The Anasazi Heritage Center (AHC) has given each specimen several unique codes, including cobjectid, to facilitate management of their DAP collections. Since this value is used in association with the AHC ARGUS database for tracking the location of a record, it is important for any researcher requesting objects from the curator.
VARCHAR  Uncoded Value Lookup : Code none none
stco This variable refers only to the state and county portion of the Smithsonian trinomial; To obtain a full site designation for any entry, append the Smithsonian site number to this variable.
VARCHAR  Uncoded Value Provenience and Context : Horizontal Location none none
site Site number refers only to the sequential position of a site within a single Smithsonian state and county designation. To obtain a full site number for any entry, this value must be appended to the Smithsonian state and county designation.
BIGINT  Uncoded Value Provenience and Context : Horizontal Location none none
