Jeffrey L. Brown Institute of Archaeology Reports

A program of testing and evaluation for three sites on a creek called Sandy Run in the Cherry Point area of the Naval Submarine Support Base at Kings Bay was conducted by the Jeffrey L. Brown Institute of Archaeology, University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. Sampling strategies varied among the sites but all testing employed 1 x 2 m excavation units sifted through quarter-inch mesh screen. Assemblages included ceramics and lithics from early prehistoric nonshell deposits, ceramics, lithics, and faunal remains from later prehistoric surface shell middens, and a wide range of late 18th/early 19th century domestic and agricultural artifacts ...

The Prehistory Of The Birch Run Road Site, Saginaw County, Michigan, Clark Aug 1985

The Prehistory Of The Birch Run Road Site, Saginaw County, Michigan, Clark

Master's Theses

The Birch Run Road site (20SA393), located in the archaeologic ally complex Saginaw Valley, was partially impacted by the extension of Birch Run Road across the Flint River. In many respects typical of Saginaw Valley sites as a whole, the Birch Run Road site produced artifacts attributable to the Early Archaic, Late Archaic, Late Woodland and historic periods. The prehistoric occupations are evaluated with special attention to the context and form of lithic raw materials, and use of projectile points in determining temporal placement. The Late Woodland component, ca. A.D. 800-1100, represents the most intensive occupation of the site ...


Archeological Inventory And Monitoring Plan, Catherine J. Smith Jun 1985

Archeological Inventory And Monitoring Plan, Catherine J. Smith

Loma Linda University Electronic Theses, Dissertations & Projects

The personnel of Dinosaur National Monument, a unit of the National Park Service, are responsible for the protection of natural and cultural resources within its boundaries. While natural resources have received much attention in Dinosaur, cultural resources have not received the treatment they are due. A Cultural Resource Management Plan (CRMP) is currently being designed in Dinosaur to aid in the preservation and protection of cultural resources. Prior to this time, there has been no specific management plan for cultural resources within the monument. As an adjunct to the CRMP, an archeological inventory and monitoring plan has been developed by ...

Archeological Implications Of Traditional House Construction Among The Nchumuru Of Northern Ghana, E. Kofi Agorsah Feb 1985

Archeological Implications Of Traditional House Construction Among The Nchumuru Of Northern Ghana, E. Kofi Agorsah

Black Studies Faculty Publications and Presentations

Ethnographic data from the Nchumuru settlement of Wiae, Kete-Krachi District, northern Volta Region, Ghana, are used to examine the manner in which earth-walled houses in Nchumuru traditional settlements are transferred from the systemic to the archeological record. Archeological survey and excavation of two early Nchumuru sites were conducted to establish the extent to which the observed cultural and natural processes of house and settlement development could help identify the location and distribution of prehistoric structural features. The result was the almost complete reconstruction of the location and distribution of structural features at one of these sites. Knowledge of the mechanisms ...

71-Prehistoric Plant Residues From The Big Woods (21c4-34) And Lightfoot (21c4-35) Sites, The Northfield, Burning Star Mine # 4, Perry County, Illinois, William M. Cremin

Reports of Investigations

The Northfield research area of Consolidation Coal Company's Burning Star Mine# 4 occupies the Upper Galum Creek drainage of Perry County, Illinois. This stream, a tributary of the Big Muddy River, together with its principal tributaries, Bonnie and Rock Fork creeks, drains an area of mature topography featuring the low relief, gently rolling hills, and broad alluvial valleys typical of the Mt. Vernon Hill Country of the Southern Till Plains Division. Although, floristically speaking, the study area lies within the Oak-Hickory Forest Region of the Western Mesophytic Forest (Braun 1950), the local vegetative pattern can more properly be described ...

69-Archaeobotanical Analysis Of Flotation Residues From The Jamestown Site (21c4-14), The Northfield, Burning Star Mine# 4, Perry County, Illinois, William M. Cremin

Reports of Investigations

Jamestown (21C4-14) is a large multicomponent site overlooking the confluence of Rock Fork, Bonnie, and Galum creeks in the Northfield, Burning Star Mine # 4, Perry County, Illinois. The Northfield is an area of mature topography featuring the gently rolling hills and broad alluvial valleys typical of the Till Plains province of south-central Illinois. Floristically~ it lies within the Oak-Hickory Forest Region of the Western Mesophytic Forest (Braun 1950). However, the local pattern of vegetation can best be described as forest-prairie ecotone, and the Jamestown site is optimally situated to have afforded its occupants easy access to the plant resources of ...
