Archaeological Survey At The Citico Site (40ha65), Hamilton County, Tennessee, Nicholas Honerkamp, Beth Fowler, Tracy Little, Robby Mantooth

Jeffrey L. Brown Institute of Archaeology Reports

During May of 1989 Dr. Nicholas Honerkamp of the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga (UTC) led a team of students enrolled in the ANTH 335 Archaeological Field School course in a survey of the Citico Site (40HA65). This well-known mound site is located adjacent to Amnicola Highway in Chattanooga, Tennessee. The area covered during the study consisted of an approximately 450 x 50 m strip of property situated between the Sandbar Restaurant and Citico Creek (Figure 1); the University of Tennessee is the current landowner. The purpose of the survey was to locate and identify any significant prehistoric or historic ...


Discerning Empirical Relationships Between The Natural Environment And Prehistoric Site Location: An Example From The Watts Bar Reservoir, East Tennessee, Kenneth Paul Cannon Dec 1989

Discerning Empirical Relationships Between The Natural Environment And Prehistoric Site Location: An Example From The Watts Bar Reservoir, East Tennessee, Kenneth Paul Cannon

Masters Theses

The Watts Bar Reservoir study area is an artificially defined region of 13,815 hectares, demarcated by the resevoir boundary of the Tennessee Valley Authority. Following completion of the Watts Bar Dam in 1942, the reservoir impounded 95 river miles of the main Tennessee River, in addition to portions of the Clinch, Emory and Piney rivers, as well as several smaller tributaries. Since the mid-nineteenth century archaelolgical investigations have been conducted in the region. However, the sporadic nature of these research endeavors has created a somewhat fragmented picture of the regions prehistory.

Following Smith's (1978b) model of the linear ...


A Reanalysis Of The Osteological And Cultural Remains From Ausmus Burial Cave, Claiborne County, Tennessee (3ce20), Carole Elizabeth Tucker Dec 1989

A Reanalysis Of The Osteological And Cultural Remains From Ausmus Burial Cave, Claiborne County, Tennessee (3ce20), Carole Elizabeth Tucker

Masters Theses

Few excavations or analyses of remains from burial caves have been published. Those that are reported are frequently cited without considering context of the original excavations and analyses. This consideration is important, because previously collected data would be interpreted differently using modern approaches.

This study is a reanalysis of Ausmus Burial Cave (3CE20), Claiborne County, Tennessee. The site was excavated in the 1930's, and the authors' methodology, conclusion, and conjectures reflect this time. Their hypothesis was that the skeletons represented intruders in the area, they were killed in battle, and their bodies were dropped unceremoniously in the pit cave ...


"What Injures Royalty" Surnames, Inbreeding, And Genetic Structure In Sevier County, Tennessee: 1856-1905, Joseph C. Lewelling Dec 1989

"What Injures Royalty" Surnames, Inbreeding, And Genetic Structure In Sevier County, Tennessee: 1856-1905, Joseph C. Lewelling

Masters Theses

Inbreeding in Southern Appalachia has been a topic of discourse for both local color writers and academicians since the late 19th century, but only a few researchers have aspired to measure inbreeding or describe the genetic structure of Appalachian populations. This study attempts to assess the genetic structure in one small section of Appalachia--Sevier County, Tennessee.

Because surnames, like alleles, are inherited from a parent, their distribution on a population can give clues about the genetic structure of that population--including the degree of inbreeding. Census and marriage records from 1856-1905 were examined using several methods of surname analysis, and estimates ...

Vadie Williams, Folk Artist: Drawnwork As A Reflection Of Personal Identity In Rural Kentucky, Elizabeth Hester

Masters Theses & Specialist Projects

This study focuses on Vadie Conner Williams, an individual folk artist, and the drawnwork she has created throughout her lifetime.

The study also examines the significance of drawnwork to Williams and determines how she has adapted her work to satisfy her personal needs as well as the needs of her customers. Based on tape recorded interviews and a close examination of her work, the study concludes that drawnwork is an integral part of Williams's everyday life; it is an indicator of her beliefs ...

The Santee Canal Sanctuary - Part Ii, Mark M. Newell Sep 1989

The Santee Canal Sanctuary - Part Ii, Mark M. Newell

Publications

The Old Santee Canal Sanctuary encompasses the last vestiges of a once great industrial enterprise, a scant mile or more of a 23 mile long canal, the first of its kind in America. When this archaeological project was first contemplated it was not expected to yield much in terms of resources and data.
Part I of this project, the archaeological survey of Biggin Creek and the canal, revealed the existence of an extremely rich resource - the tide-lock, several vessels, earthen works and the remains of the tide-lock gates.
Much of Part II of the project, on which this paper reports ...


The Political Economy Of A Neighborhood Spat, Sandra Faiman-Silva Sep 1989

The Political Economy Of A Neighborhood Spat, Sandra Faiman-Silva

Bridgewater Review

The dramas of daily life are often substance for true anthropological inquiry because they present us with examples of social conflict and its resolution, thereby illuminating perennial questions faced by members of a society. What can a dispute between two neighbors in a not-so-remote village of Cape Cod tell us that might be of interest to students of dispute resolution, resource use, and even political economy? The dispute examined here appears to have far-reaching implications not only because of the disputants themselves, representatives of two classes of American citizenry; but also because their conflict and the process used to achieve ...
