A Reinterpretation Of Some Bay Area Shellmound Sites: A View From The Mortuary Complex From Ca-Ala-329, The Ryan Mound, Alan M. Leventhal Dec 1993

A Reinterpretation Of Some Bay Area Shellmound Sites: A View From The Mortuary Complex From Ca-Ala-329, The Ryan Mound, Alan M. Leventhal

Faculty Publications, Anthropology

This monograph is a slightly revised and updated version of my 1993 thesis A Reinterpretation of Some Bay Area Shellmound Sites: A View from the Mortuary Complex from Ca-Ala-329, the Ryan Mound. This study addresses the archaeological assemblages derived from prehistoric site Ca-Ala-329, and applies generated data to pre-existing settlement-subsistence models developed for central California and the San Francisco Bay. When these data failed to conform neatly to the expected pattern of shellmounds-as-villages model, alternative explanations had to be explored. Alternative explanations were developed by critically evaluating the treatment of comparable published archaeological data from other San Francisco Bay shellmounds ...

The Kavousi Coarse Wares: A Bronze Age Chronology For Survey In The Mirabello Area, East Crete, Donald C. Haggis, Margaret S. Mook Apr 1993

The Kavousi Coarse Wares: A Bronze Age Chronology For Survey In The Mirabello Area, East Crete, Donald C. Haggis, Margaret S. Mook

Margaret S. Mook

This paper presents the results of the Kavousi-Thriphti Survey coarse-ware study. It is argued that coarse utilitarian pottery can be used for dating sites in archaeological survey, and further, that coarse pottery on the surface of any site with a domestic or storage function may represent a wider, and thus more accurate, chronological range than the associated fine wares. Detailed descriptions of 18 coarse fabric types identified in the survey region are presented. Thirteen of these fabrics were determined to be chronologically diagnostic. These fabric types, with their proposed chronological ranges and proveniences, provide sufficient data to begin analyzing the ...


An Archaeological Survey Of The Cargill Grain Elevator Tract, Chattanooga, Hamilton County, Tennessee, R. Bruce Council Apr 1993

An Archaeological Survey Of The Cargill Grain Elevator Tract, Chattanooga, Hamilton County, Tennessee, R. Bruce Council

Jeffrey L. Brown Institute of Archaeology Reports

The Jeffrey L. Brown Institute of Archaeology, University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, was engaged by RiverPort Inn and Marina, Inc., of Chattanooga, to conduct a Phase I level archaeological reconnaissance on portions of a nine-acre parcel on the Tennessee River occupied by the grain elevator and storage plant of Cargill, Inc. As required by the Tennessee Historical Commission, the reconnaissance specifically included deep subsurface testing of the tract. A 25m (82') grid was superimposed on the site and every accessible or otherwise undisturbed grid intersection was cored using a power soil auger. The fill was screened for uniform artifact retrieval ...


New Excavations Of A Middle Minoan Cemetery In East Crete, Donald C. Haggis, Margaret S. Mook, Jennifer L. Tobin, B.J. Hayden Apr 1993

New Excavations Of A Middle Minoan Cemetery In East Crete, Donald C. Haggis, Margaret S. Mook, Jennifer L. Tobin, B.J. Hayden

Margaret S. Mook

The Kalo Khorio Archaeological Rescue Project (KARP) is the excavation of a Middle Minoan (I-II) cemetery in the region of Kalo Khorio-Istron, at the southern edge of the Bay of Mirabella in eastern Crete. Excavation was conducted in September 1991 by members of the American School of Classical Studies at Athens, and under the auspices and general directorship of Metaxia Tsipopoulou and Costis Davaras of the Greek Archaeological Service of eastern Crete.


The Late Minoan Iiic Pottery From The Kastro At Kavousi, East Crete, Margaret S. Mook, William D.E. Coulson Apr 1993

The Late Minoan Iiic Pottery From The Kastro At Kavousi, East Crete, Margaret S. Mook, William D.E. Coulson

Margaret S. Mook

The last phase of the Bronze Age on Crete, Late Minoan IIIC, is poorly understood both culturally and chronologically. Although much has been said about the shapes and decoration of LM IIIC pottery, the analyses are primarily stylistic and lack a precise stratigraphical basis. The stylistic development within the pottery sequence is ill defined because the remains from type sites (such as Kastri, Karphi, and Phaistos) are incompletely published, extremely meager, or stratigraphically discontinuous. On the Kastro at Kavousi, however, three distinct chronological phases of LM IIIC occupation, representing the entirety of the period, in addition to a transitional LM ...


Archaeological Survey And Monitoring Of The Combined Sewer Overflow Control Facility, Ross's Landing Park, Chattanooga, Tennessee, R. Bruce Council Mar 1993

Archaeological Survey And Monitoring Of The Combined Sewer Overflow Control Facility, Ross's Landing Park, Chattanooga, Tennessee, R. Bruce Council

Jeffrey L. Brown Institute of Archaeology Reports

The Jeffrey L. Brown Institute of Archaeology, University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, was engaged in December, 1990, by Downs Engineering, Inc., on behalf of the City of Chattanooga, to conduct an archaeological reconnaissance of the route of a proposed combined sewer overflow (CSO) conduit extending over 650 meters through Ross's Landing Park on the south bank of the Tennessee River in Chattanooga, Tennessee. On the determination of the Tennessee Historical Commission, the potential for significant historic period archaeological remains within the proposed sewer project was deemed high. An archaeological reconnaissance of the project area and/or mitigative measures was ...

Deciphering The Grand Village Of The Illinois: A Preliminary Assessment Of The Grand Village Research Project, Lenville J. Stelle, James A. Brown, Charles L. Rohrbaugh, Thomas E. Emerson, Robert Jeske

Anthropology Faculty Scholarship

On April 24, 1987, Thomas Emerson at the State Historic Preservation Office received a telephone call from a Chicago lawyer who wanted an answer to a simple question: "Are there any laws that protect old Indian villages and graves that are on the National Register?" Unfortunately, the answer was a simple “no.” At the time, Emerson did not suspect that this question would initiate a more than four-year struggle to save one of the most important historic sites in the country. The site, known variously as the Zimmerman site, the Grand Village of the Kaskaskia, Old Kaskaskia Village, the Grand ...

Lun Bawang Beads, Heidi Munan Jan 1993

Lun Bawang Beads, Heidi Munan

BEADS: Journal of the Society of Bead Researchers

The Lun Bawang and related peoples of east Sarawak, west Sabah and Brunei have a long tradition of using beads for personal ornamentation and as value objects. They share in the general Borneo bead heritage, but follow their own tastes and fashions. Some Lun Bawang have started reproducing their favorite opaque beads from clay to sell as well as to wear on informal occasions. This new cottage industry brings a satisfactory income to the beadmakers, and helps to preserve their heirloom property.

Gold-Glass Beads: A Review Of The Evidence, Maud Spaer Jan 1993

Gold-Glass Beads: A Review Of The Evidence, Maud Spaer

BEADS: Journal of the Society of Bead Researchers

The study of gold-glass beads was given a considerable boost in the 1970s by Weinberg's report on their manufacture in Hellenistic Rhodes and by Alekseeva' s and Boon's studies on finds from southern Russia and Britain, respectively. Nothing comparable has been published in the intervening years, but scattered new information has appeared. This paper aims to survey and review the available data on manufacturing technique, style, provenience and chronology. An attempt is also made to fit gold-glass beads into the general framework of glass history. The main focus is on the finds of the Mediterranean and related regions ...


The A Speo Method Of Heat Rounding Drawn Glass Beads And Its Archaeological Manifestations, Karlis Karklins Jan 1993

The A Speo Method Of Heat Rounding Drawn Glass Beads And Its Archaeological Manifestations, Karlis Karklins

BEADS: Journal of the Society of Bead Researchers

From at least the early 17th century to the latter part of the 18th century, drawn glass beads over about 4 mm in diameter were generally rounded in European glasshouses using a method called a speo by the Italians who apparently invented it. The little-known process involved mounting a number of tube segments on the tines of a multi-pronged iron implement which was then inserted in a furnace and turned until the tubes were rounded to the desired degree. Beads produced in this manner often exhibit distinctive characteristics and are easily identified in archaeological collections.


Powdered-Glass Beads And Bead Trade In Mauritania, Marie-José Opper, Howard Opper Jan 1993

Powdered-Glass Beads And Bead Trade In Mauritania, Marie-José Opper, Howard Opper

BEADS: Journal of the Society of Bead Researchers

Artisans in Kiffa and several other towns in southern Mauritania have produced a unique kind of powdered-glass bead for several generations. Commonly called "Kiffa beads," they generally copy the designs and forms of ancient beads, as well as more recent European examples. This article discusses their history, manufacture and relevance in Mauritanian culture. While production of the beads recently ceased for a time, several women have again begun to make them though the new varieties are not as inspiring as their predecessors.

The Z.V. Davis-Mcpeek Site, An Early Caddoan Mound Site In The Little Cypress Creek Valley, Upshur County, Texas, Bo Nelson, Timothy K. Perttula Jan 1993

The Z.V. Davis-Mcpeek Site, An Early Caddoan Mound Site In The Little Cypress Creek Valley, Upshur County, Texas, Bo Nelson, Timothy K. Perttula

Index of Texas Archaeology: Open Access Gray Literature from the Lone Star State

The Z.V. Davis-McPeek site (41UR4/99) is an Early Caddoan period mound and habitation area located in northwest Upshur County. The mound is on a broad terrace along Little Cypress Creek, in the western portion of the Cypress Basin. Since the initial recording of the site some 60 years ago, there have been several different but limited investigations there, but none have been published. These limited investigations, coupled with the uncertainty of the site's exact location (see below), prompted the authors (with the able assistance of Mike Turner) to relocate the site, assemble known information about it, evaluate ...


Archaeological Investigations At The Tobert Potter And Harriet Ames Cabin (41mr51) On Potter's Point, Caddo Lake, Timothy K. Perttula Jan 1993

Archaeological Investigations At The Tobert Potter And Harriet Ames Cabin (41mr51) On Potter's Point, Caddo Lake, Timothy K. Perttula

Index of Texas Archaeology: Open Access Gray Literature from the Lone Star State

This paper discusses recent archaeological investigations at the Robert Potter and Harriet Ames cabin site (41MR51) on Caddo Lake at Potter's Point. The cabin site represents a relatively intact mid-nineteenth century archaeological deposit from a Northeast Texas cultural resource of considerable historical significance.

The site was located by Mr. Claude McCrocklin and members of the Louisiana Archaeological Society in the summer of 1992. The artifacts collected from these limited investigations were then turned over to the author for study as the first step in assessing the site's archaeological character and preservation potential.


A Summary Of The History Of The Caddo People, Frank F. Schambach Jan 1993

A Summary Of The History Of The Caddo People, Frank F. Schambach

Index of Texas Archaeology: Open Access Gray Literature from the Lone Star State

I am pleased and very honored that you have invited me here today to tell you something about the past of the Caddo people as it is known to archaeologists. This is a subject that has been both my occupation and my major preoccupation for more than 25 years. The story that I and other archaeologists have been piecing together over many years is long, complex, and endlessly fascinating. It is a heritage that anyone could be proud of. Let me give you some of the highlights.

The story began over 11,500 years ago--or about 9,500 B.C ...
