The Lithic Assemblage Of The Hacklander Site, Allegan County, Michigan, Jerrel H. Sorensen

Master's Theses

Introduction

Orientation

In A History of American Archaeology Willey and Sabloff (1974) outline the development of archaeological method and theory in the Western Hemisphere. The authors defined 5 periods through which they traced advances in archaeology from the time Europe first discovered the New World. Each other these periods is characterized by certain attitudes and orientations toward archaeological data. Old ideas changed as new information, new tools of discovery, and new ways of interpretation and explanation transformed archaeology into what it is today.

Archaeologists are now in the Explanatory Period (Willey and Sabloff 1974:178). This period's theoretical orientation ...

Ethnography For Archaeology: A Functional Interpretation Of An Upper Great Lakes Prehistoric Fishing Artifact, Donald E. Weston Aug 1978

Ethnography For Archaeology: A Functional Interpretation Of An Upper Great Lakes Prehistoric Fishing Artifact, Donald E. Weston

Master's Theses

Introduction and Problem

One of the basic and challenging tasks in archaeology is the interpretation of artifacts and the reconstruction of prehistoric cultures. Difficulties arise primarily because (1) not all past human behavior is manifest in the archaeological record, and (2) that which remains is only adequately represented. Our success at understanding prehistory is further limited by differential preservation, lack of representative samples, and loss of contextual data. Even with the use of sophisticated recovery techniques, vigorous analysis, and statistical manipulation it is seldom possible to arrive at neat reconstructions. Prehistory is, after all, the indirect study of human behavior ...

The 46th Street Site And The Occurrence Of Allegan Ware In Southwestern Michigan, Margaret B. Rogers Nov 1971

The 46th Street Site And The Occurrence Of Allegan Ware In Southwestern Michigan, Margaret B. Rogers

Master's Theses

The 46th Street site is located on a steep bank twenty feet above the Kalamazoo River in the Allegan State Forest in Allegan County, Michigan. Radiocarbon dates indicate that the site was occupied about A. D. 1200. The settlement pattern and ecological data for the 46th Street site points to the conclusion that this was a winter hunting camp of the Chippewa type. A comparison of the pottery from the 46th Street site with the pottery from the Fenneville site which is located in Manilus Twonship, Allegan County and dates from about A. D. 700, yields some interferences about variation ...
