Bow Use In The Great Basin, Andrew Ugan Dec 1992

Bow Use In The Great Basin, Andrew Ugan

Undergraduate Honors Capstone Projects

The bow and arrow is a tool with a very long history. In the Old World its use dates back to paleolithic times, with firm evidence in the form of arrow shafts dated to the early ninth millennium b.c. (McEwen, Miller, & Bergman, 1991). More tenuous evidence from projectile points in Africa may push that back as far as 11000 b.c. (Blitz, 1988). The focus of this paper, however, will be the adoption and subsequent use of the bow in the Great Basin region of the West.

Georgian Worldview: Its Definition, History, And Influence On The Material World Of Thomas Jefferson, Madison Scott Shumate Dec 1992

Georgian Worldview: Its Definition, History, And Influence On The Material World Of Thomas Jefferson, Madison Scott Shumate

Masters Theses

The research of this thesis has been that of two directions. The first of these attempted to both define and expand that ideological concept known as the Georgian Worldview. By referencing the opinions of current authority and by examining the very origins of this concept's many attributes this thesis would suggest that the term "Georgian" encompasses far more than symmetry in architecture alone. With this said, however, it must yet be acknowledged that architecture, and particularly the balanced and refined Palladian examples of the eighteenth century, often represented the most clearly recognizable material manifestation of this particular pervasive mind ...


A Morphometric Study Of Sex Differences In Fetal Ilia, Susan Marie Cera Holcomb Dec 1992

A Morphometric Study Of Sex Differences In Fetal Ilia, Susan Marie Cera Holcomb

Masters Theses

Considerable debate has concentrated on whether human fetal skeletal remains exhibit sexual dimorphism. Most attention has focused on the greater sciatic notch of the ilium, since it is a gross morphological characteristic with known sex differences in the adult and is easily seen in fetal skeletal remains. Previous traditional morphometric analyses of the fetal sciatic notch have, however, led to ambiguous results. The purpose of this study is to determine whether differences between the sexes can be discerned when modern morphometric techniques are applied.

Photographs of the ventral side of 133 fetal ilia of known age and sex from the ...


Anthropometric Variation Of The Cherokee, Choctaw, Kiowa, And Pawnee Amerindians, Richard P. Bigee Dec 1992

Anthropometric Variation Of The Cherokee, Choctaw, Kiowa, And Pawnee Amerindians, Richard P. Bigee

Masters Theses

This thesis provides an overview of Anthropometric variation among six groups of American Indians: The Eastern Band of Cherokees, the Eastern Band of Choctaws, the Western Band of Cherokees, the Western Band of Choctaws, Kiowas, and Pawnees. Anthropometric variation among these groups is analyzed using a combination of historical and statistical information.

The history of the study groups was analyzed to determine the general level of health during the period leading up the point when they were measured under the direction of Dr. Franz Boas. It is revealed that all the study groups experienced considerable stress, which effected anthropometric measurements ...


Exploring Archaic Settlement In The Midsouth: The Surface Archaeology Of Cannon And Cheek Bends Of The Duck River, Tennessee, Charles L. Hall Dec 1992

Exploring Archaic Settlement In The Midsouth: The Surface Archaeology Of Cannon And Cheek Bends Of The Duck River, Tennessee, Charles L. Hall

Doctoral Dissertations

During the late 1970s and early 1980s the Department of Anthropology at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville conducted an inventory and assessment of archaeological resources potentially affected by the proposed Columbia Reservoir on the Duck River in Middle Tennessee. Two environmental subdivisions of the Nashville Basin were present in the reservoir area: the patchy Inner Basin and the more homogeneous Outer Basin. As the majority of the archaeological material found was referable to the Middle and Late Archaic Periods, the research design focused on an investigation of Archaic adaptation in this environmentally variable landscape.

Two river bends selected as ...

Inspection And Historical Documentation Of The Earnest Mill Site, Nolichucky River, State Rout 351, Greene County, Tennessee, R. Bruce Council Aug 1992

Inspection And Historical Documentation Of The Earnest Mill Site, Nolichucky River, State Rout 351, Greene County, Tennessee, R. Bruce Council

Jeffrey L. Brown Institute of Archaeology Reports

In response to a solicitation by the Environmental Planning Office, Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT), the author inspected the visible remains of the Earnest Mill Site adjacent to the Nolichucky River Bridge on SR 351 in Greene County, Tennessee. Site-specific historical documentation of the mill seat was also conducted. The purpose of the inspection and documentary research was to provide data pertinent to a determination of the potential for significant archaeological remains associated with a grist and flour mill site threatened by a TDOT bridge replacement project then in the planning stage. TDOT environmental planning reports on the bridge replacement ...


A Functional Analysis Of The Lithic Material From Burrone Scierra I (Calabria, Italy), Maureen A. Hays Aug 1992

A Functional Analysis Of The Lithic Material From Burrone Scierra I (Calabria, Italy), Maureen A. Hays

Masters Theses

The purpose of this research is to investigate several aspects of function within Mousterian assemblages by performing an analysis of artifacts from Burrone Scierra I, a site on the Ionian coast of Calabria, Italy. This research focuses on the relationship between function and the edge angle, tool size, raw material, technology and typology. Another intent of this study is to examine what spatial integrity remained at the site. The study assemblage is a surface collection from a plow zone context. Because the collection under investigation is from plow zone context the methods employed are those developed for low power microwear ...


Modelling Suture Ossification: A View From The Cranial Capsule, Hugh Bryson Matternes Aug 1992

Modelling Suture Ossification: A View From The Cranial Capsule, Hugh Bryson Matternes

Masters Theses

A review of the development, anatomy, and physiology of the human cranial vault suggests that post-adolescent ossification of the suture margins is dictated by interactions between tissues of the cranial capsule and forces deriving from ectocranial, endocranial and diploid sources. A model viewing suture physiology as sensitive to changes in the cranial capsule's environment is tested to identify whether several processes stimulate connective tissue transformation in the suture area. Correlation and factor analysis of the suture-to-suture interactions produced results indicating that when age is controlled, endocranial and ectocranial surfaces independently respond to pressures placed on the anterior and posterior ...


The Character Of Surface Archaeological Deposits And Its Influence On Survey Accuracy, Luann Wandsnider, Eileen Camilli Jul 1992

The Character Of Surface Archaeological Deposits And Its Influence On Survey Accuracy, Luann Wandsnider, Eileen Camilli

Anthropology Faculty Publications

Survey is one of the primary methods of data collection in archaeology today. Survey data often constitute the sole conserved record of the prehistoric use of an area and are used as the foundation for culture historical, demographic, and economic reconstructions. Given the fundamental nature of survey data in relation to other archaeological pursuits, identification of biases inherent in this type of data are important and have been the subject of a number of stimulating studies. Analyses reported here focus on the accuracy of results produced through intensive survey. Using data from several siteless surveys in the American West, the ...
