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 Jan 1985

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 Jan 1985

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 ...
