An Analysis Of The Lithic Raw Materials And Diagnostic Projectile Points From The Settlement Pattern Survey Project In The Lower Kalamazoo River Valley, Amy L. Campbell Apr 1986

An Analysis Of The Lithic Raw Materials And Diagnostic Projectile Points From The Settlement Pattern Survey Project In The Lower Kalamazoo River Valley, Amy L. Campbell

Master's Theses

This analysis was carried out on lithic materials collected during the three years of the Settlement Pattern Survey in the Lower Kalamazoo River valley, 1978-1980. The objectives of the study were to provide a firm temporal sequence for the prehistory of the area based on diagnostic projectile point styles, and to assess the dynamics of interregional contact via the identification of chert types from distant source areas. The sample of projectile points provided evidence of human occupation of the Lower Kalamazoo River valley from Paleoindian through Late Woodland times, most notably new evidence for significant occupation in the Early Archaic ...


A Statistical Analysis Of The Lithic Material From The Zemaitis Site (200t68), Ottawa County, Michigan, Michael L. Murphy Apr 1986

A Statistical Analysis Of The Lithic Material From The Zemaitis Site (200t68), Ottawa County, Michigan, Michael L. Murphy

Master's Theses

An analysis of the lith ic tools and a representative sample of debitage from the Zemaitis site is presented. The methodology employed in lith ic analysis is described with the goal of comparab ility with other studies. Based upon this comparison i t is suggested that the major occupation of the site was during the Middle Woodland Period and the site appears to have been occupied year-round. Because the Zemaitis site was undisturbed by modern agricultural techniques, special attention is given to the artifact distributions both vertically and horizontally across the site.

With the aid of various statistical models the ...

Early Evidence Of Maya Hieroglyphic Writing At Kichpanha, Belize, Eric C. Gibson, Leslie C. Shaw, Daniel R. Finamore

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

Archaeological research, conducted intermittently at Kichpanha, Belize, from 1973 to 1983 was primarily limited to surveying and mapping. During the 1985 season, test excavations initiated in the 1983 season were continued (Gibson 1985a). House mounds and plazuela groups yielded further evidence of extensive use of the site from the Xe and early facet Mamom phases (relatively dated to approximately 900-700 B.C.), until its near total abandonment in the Early Postclassic (ca. A.D. 900-1000). In this paper we present some preliminary results of the 1985 season at Kichpanha in the context of our research foci which included economic relationships ...

An Archaeological Survey Of Converse City Park, Bexar County, Texas, Ralph Snavely

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

On March 3-4, 1986, the Center for Archaeological Research (CAR), The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA), conducted a survey of approximately 25 acres, comprising the Converse City Park on the south edge of Converse in Bexar County, Texas. The survey was required to comply with federal regulations. One area within the development zone was found to have a light surface scatter of cultural materials. This lithic scatter was recorded and assigned a permanent state site designation (41BX698). An intensive search of the site area failed to produce any concentration of cultural materials other than the one area. No ...

Archaeological Investigations At The United States Arsenal Site (41bx622), San Antonio, Texas, Anne A. Fox Jan 1986

Archaeological Investigations At The United States Arsenal Site (41bx622), San Antonio, Texas, Anne A. Fox

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

Test excavations were carried out at two locations on the grounds of the old U.S. Arsenal in downtown San Antonio, Texas, in December 1983. Backhoe trenching at the north end of the site revealed no indication of the location of an acequia lateral suspected to run through the area. Test excavations at the south end of the stone stable building found no indication of the location of a stairway which is presumed to have led to a second story doorway in the wall of the building. Historical research resulted in production of a history of the Arsenal from the ...

Archaeological Studies At The Cps Butler Lignite Prospect, Bastrop And Lee Counties, Texas, 1983, Kenneth M. Brown

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

In May and June 1983, archaeologists from the Center for Archaeological Research, The University of Texas at San Antonio, performed a pedestrian survey intended to provide 100% coverage of 288 hectares of land in the CPS Butler lignite prospect. The survey area was divided into five separate tracts in Bastrop and Lee Counties; four of these tracts had been examined in an earlier reconnaissance-level survey, and the present survey was intended in large part to emphasize heavily vegetated areas not thoroughly covered by the earlier survey. Five sites were located; all had some prehistoric cultural debris, but two were chiefly ...

Archaeological Investigations At Morgan Chapel Cemetery (41bp200), A Historic Cemetery In Bastrop County, Texas, Anna J. Taylor, Anne A. Fox, I. Waynne Cox

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

During August 1984, archaeologists from the Center for Archaeological Research (CAR), The University of Texas at San Antonio, and City Public Service (CPS) of San Antonio relocated the burials from Morgan Chapel Cemetery (41 BP 200), in Bastrop County, Texas. Twenty-one burials, of which 13 were unmarked, were located, exposed, recorded, and removed for reinterment in the nearby McDade and Ridgeway Cemeteries. The nature of the clay subsoil at the site obscured grave outlines, which made detection of unmarked burials quite difficult. This situation resulted in a decision by CPS, following consultation with representatives of the Texas Historical Commission and ...
