An Analysis of Projectile Point Agency from the South Diamond Creek Pueblo Site
Author(s): Christopher Stanton
This is an abstract from the "SAA 2019: General Sessions" session, at the 84th annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology.
This paper presents an analysis of the projectile points recovered from the South Diamond Creek Pueblo (SDCP) site. This project took place over two summers in 2016 and 2017 and involved a salvage excavation of a Classic Mimbres pueblo. The excavation of the site yielded numerous intact projectile points in various contexts. By integrating a Behavioral Archaeology framework, I will examine object agency—how agents and materials interacted in an environment—using the spatial and temporal associations between the context of the projectile points recovered from the SDCP site and the Mimbres peoples. To achieve my research goal, I will discuss the morphology of the SDCP projectile points, their use-life, and the interactions between Mimbres peoples and their surrounding groups within and beyond the Mimbres study area.
