Pharr-Reynosa International Bridge: Continued Archeological And Historical Research At El Capote Ranch Community, Hidalgo County, Texas, Douglas K. Boyd, Andres Tijerina, Karl W. Kibler, Amy C. Earls, Martha Doty Freeman

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

Phase II cultural resources investigations for the Pharr-Reynosa International Bridge currently under construction in Hidalgo County, Texas, were conducted by Prewitt and Associates, Inc. in September 1993 and June 1994. The work included additional survey and documentation of seven historic sites, testing and evaluation of three sites, archival and oral history research on the former Hispanic community of EI Capote, and collection of additional geoarcheological data. The seven historic sites (4IHG162-41HG168) represent former nineteenth- and twentieth-century housesites within EI Capote. Due to a lack of integrity, it is recommended that all seven sites be considered ineligible for listing on the ...


Review Of: Australian Rock Art: A New Synthesis, Paul Faulstich Oct 1994

Review Of: Australian Rock Art: A New Synthesis, Paul Faulstich

Pitzer Faculty Publications and Research

Rock-art studies have now come of age, and are among the most fertile explorations of expressive culture. Through an interdisciplinary approach to its study, we have expanded our knowledge into the realms of aesthetics, belief systems, and social structures. Australian rock an is particularly significant, since it is a visual expression that has been practiced by contemporary as well as prehistoric Aboriginals. Robert Layton's most recent book -his "new synthesis" of Australian rock art- is an ambitious and successful analysis of Aboriginal rock art from across the continent.

Cultural Resources Survey And Monitoring Of Joint Task Force Six (Jtf-6) Actions In Webb, Zapata, Dimmit, La Salle, Duvall, And Jim Hogg Counties, Texas, Stephen P. Austin, Scott Ferguson, Steven M. Hunt, Floyd B. Largent Jr., Mark A. Sale

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

Joint Task Force Six (JTF-6) Operation AT-93 involved multiple actions in six south Texas counties. These actions included the repair and construction of approximately 240 km (150 mi) of existing firebreaks, the repair/upgrade of approximately 9.5 km (5.9 mi) of road along the Rio Grande River near Laredo, the upgrade of two small-arms firing ranges, and the construction of a fitness/obstacle course. Extensive previous disturbance was noted within the impact areas of the firebreaks and at the two firing ranges; no cultural resource sites were located in these areas. Along the Rio Grande, the survey identified ...


Making Monotheism: Global Islam In Local Practice Among The Laujé Of Indonesia, Jennifer W. Nourse Jul 1994

Making Monotheism: Global Islam In Local Practice Among The Laujé Of Indonesia, Jennifer W. Nourse

Sociology and Anthropology Faculty Publications

This paper explores the complex interaction between state-sanctioned Islam and local religious practice in Indonesia's periphery. In 1982 in the "county" of Tinombo, Central Sulawesi, immigrant Reform Muslims convinced the regional government to ban a spirit possession ritual performed by the indigenous Laufe people. Reformists claimed that Laujé spirit mediums were possessed by satanic spirits. Insulted by Reformists' claims that Laujé rites were pagan and they themselves were not Muslims, prominent Laujé went to officials in the government asking to rescind the ban. In their arguments, Laujé borrowed the rhetoric of Reform Islam. The ban was rescinded in 1984 ...

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

The third and final season of Phase III data recovery at Lake Alan Henry (formerly Justiceburg Reservoir), located on the Double Mountain Fork of the Brazos River in Garza and Kent counties, Texas, was conducted during the fall of 1992. The work consisted of intensive archeological investigations at one historic site and four prehistoric sites. Subsequent to the Season 3 data recovery fieldwork, a newly discovered rock art site (41KTl64) was documented. The historic component at 41GR474 consists of a dugout depression and the ruins of a wood frame house and related complex of ranching structures. It was the homestead ...


Traditionelle Wertmuster Und Der Krieg In Ex-Jugoslawien, Joel Halpern, Hannes Grandits May 1994

Traditionelle Wertmuster Und Der Krieg In Ex-Jugoslawien, Joel Halpern, Hannes Grandits

Joel M. Halpern

The various national movements in the Southern Slavonic countries concerned themselves very thoroughly with their respective village cultures. In them, in a world of rapid modernization, they sought to find and detect their origins and to understand what characteristics their people and makes it special. This more often than not resulted in a romantic transfiguration and idealization of rural or village value patterns,as seen from an urban, intellectual perspective. These patterns,as it were, should be "characteristic"of the nation and serve as models. Furthermore, we seek to place some traditional value patterns into the context of the war ...

Aspects Of Vernacular Architecture In Postpalatial And Early Iron Age Crete, Margaret S. Mook, Donald C. Haggis Apr 1994

Aspects Of Vernacular Architecture In Postpalatial And Early Iron Age Crete, Margaret S. Mook, Donald C. Haggis

Margaret S. Mook

Vernacular architecture in Postpalatial Crete exhibits a distinct diversion from the domestic architectural traditions of the Neopalatial period. In Neopalatial Crete, house designs are frequently dependent on Minoan palatial models and all house styles have a complexity that is seldom seen in the ensuing periods. Changes in vernacular architectural plans have emerged by the beginning of Late Minoan III, and include single-room dwellings and axially planned twoor three-room houses; they are found island-wide and continue and develop through the Early Iron Age. Standard features of these architectural types are defined and documented from LM III through the Late Geometric period ...


Archeological And Geomorphological Investigations At Prehistoric Sites 41wy50 And 41wy60, Willacy County, Texas, Karl W. Kibler Mar 1994

Archeological And Geomorphological Investigations At Prehistoric Sites 41wy50 And 41wy60, Willacy County, Texas, Karl W. Kibler

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

In January through March 1993, archeological and geomorphological investigations were conducted at two clay dune sites, 41WY50 and 41WY60, in the outfall area of the Hidalgo-Willacy Drainage Ditch system. This work represents the final investigations of a cultural resource management program conducted for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the local sponsors, Hidalgo County Drainage District No. 1 and Willacy County Drainage District No. I, by Prewitt and Associates, Inc. The results of the archeological investigations were poor. Neither site yielded materials of unquestionable cultural origin, although several small basin-shaped hearth features were encountered. Based on radiocarbon assays ...
