Dolores Archaeological Program Technical Reports, DAP-043: Additive Technologies - 1979

Author(s): W. A. Lucius

Year: 1982


The Additive Technologies Group of the Dolores Archaeological Program (D.A.P.) completed inventory analysis of ceramic materials recovered during the 1978 and 1979 D.A.P. field seasons, and during the 1974-1976 Dolores River Project survey. Analysis, which consisted of the microscopic and macroscopic examination of the ceramic materials, was followed by the input of the data into the computerized project data bank. The results of inventory analysis were used to define specific culture categories, wares, and types in the ceramic assemblage. Various ancillary ceramic studies, such as vessel reconstruction and thin-section analysis, were undertaken. The contribution made to the project Research Design by ceramic analysis was evaluated. Appendix A describes the methods and results of the Reconstructable Ceramics Program and provides dates for various site proveniences based on the reconstructable vessel data. Appendixes B and C consist of the ceramic coding format and descriptions of the traditidnal types identified in the ceramic assemblage.

Originally the information in this record was migrated into tDAR from the National Archaeological Database Reports Module (NADB-R) and updated. In 2015, as part of its effort to improve tDAR content, the Center for Digital Antiquity uploaded a copy of the document and further improved the record metadata.
