Wetland Manipulation In The Yalahau Region Of The Northern Maya Lowlands, Scott L. Fedick, Bethany A. Morrison, Bente Juhl Andersen, Sylviane Boucher, Jorge Ceja Acosta, Jennifer P. Mathews Jan 2000

Wetland Manipulation In The Yalahau Region Of The Northern Maya Lowlands, Scott L. Fedick, Bethany A. Morrison, Bente Juhl Andersen, Sylviane Boucher, Jorge Ceja Acosta, Jennifer P. Mathews

Sociology & Anthropology Faculty Research

Manipulation of wetlands for agricultural purposes by the ancient Maya of southern Mexico and Central America has been a subject of much research and debate since the 1970s. Evidence for wetland cultivation systems, in the form of drained or channelized fields, and raised planting platforms, has been restricted primarily to the southern Maya Lowlands. New research in the Yalahau region of Quintana Roo, Mexico, has recorded evidence for wetland manipulation in the far northern lowlands, in the form of rock alignments that apparently functioned to control water movement and soil accumulation in seasonally inundated areas. Nearby ancient settlements date primarily ...

Archeological Test Excavations At 41wm543 On Fm 734, The Parmer Lane Extension, Williamson County, Texas, Barbara J. Hickman Jan 2000

Archeological Test Excavations At 41wm543 On Fm 734, The Parmer Lane Extension, Williamson County, Texas, Barbara J. Hickman

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

A previously recorded site, 41WM543, was re-evaluated by archeologists from the Texas Department of Transportation in connection with the FM 734 Parmer Lane extension northwest of Austin, Texas. The portion of the site within the proposed right-of-way was tested after a burned rock concentration was exposed. Chronology of the open campsite is based on projectile point typology as no datable features were found. The diagnostic projectile points represented a time span of Early Archaic through Late Archaic Periods. The majority of the points were found in only two levels, however. Given the lack of buried features, no further work is ...


The Bryan Hardy Site (41sm55), Smith County, Texas, Mark Walters, Patti Haskins Jan 2000

The Bryan Hardy Site (41sm55), Smith County, Texas, Mark Walters, Patti Haskins

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

The authors put on record archeological data obtained by Mr. Walters' late uncle Sam Whiteside from the Bryan Hardy site (41SM55) in Smith County, Texas. Mr. Whiteside was an active avocational archeologist in East Texas during the late 1950s and early 1960s, and he recorded numerous prehistoric sites on Prairie Creek and Ray Creek in Smith County, and the Jamestown (41SM54) and Boxed Springs (41UR30) mound sites on the Sabine River. An abrupt illness in mid-life prevented him from publishing his findings, and we hope that the publication of his investigations at the Bryan Hardy site will allow his work ...

The Frequency Of Fire In East Texas Forests, David H. Jurney, John Ippolito, Velicia Bergstrom Jan 2000

The Frequency Of Fire In East Texas Forests, David H. Jurney, John Ippolito, Velicia Bergstrom

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

The debate over the use of fire by Native Americans has been a lively one for many years. Did they or did they not set fires? If they did, how frequently and for what purpose? If not, did they take advantage of naturally occurring fires for the same purposes? If so, how frequently and to what intensity did those natural fires occur? These seem like relatively simple questions that should elicit focused, directed research that would, in tum, produce straightforward answers. In some parts of North America, this has indeed been the case. Ethnographic documentation, corroborated by archaeological research, has ...

Dating The Colonial-Era Davis Site (44la46) In Lancaster County, Virginia, Marcus M. Key, Jr., Tara E. Jones, Carolyn H. Jett

Faculty and Staff Publications By Year

This is the first detailed archeological analysis of the Davis Site (44LA46), located on the Eastern Branch of the Corrotoman River in Lancaster County, Virginia. The goal of the study was to date the site's colonial occupation using historical archeological methods. Plow zone surface collections, which were dominated by clay tobacco pipe fragments, formed the basis of the study. The very complete courthouse records in Lancaster County permitted an integrated historical archeological approach to dating the site. The timing of colonial occupation was determined using five independent approaches. The first three were based on archeological artifacts: (1) pipe stem ...

Dating The Prehistoric Davis Site (44la46) In Lancaster County, Virginia, Marcus M. Key, Jr., Emily S. Gaskin

Faculty and Staff Publications By Year

The Davis Site ( 44LA46) is a multicomponent (colonial and prehistoric) site located on the Eastern Branch of the Corrotoman River in Lancaster County, Virginia. Plow zone surface collections included numerous Native American pottery sherds and projectile points. The goal of the study was to date the site's prehistoric occupation using the typological approach with the pottery sherds and projectile points. The pottery wares present included Mockley, Townsend, and Potomac Creek, with Mockley Ware being the most common. The pottery sherds indicate a maximum range of occupation from the Middle Woodland period to the historic period with a weighted mean ...
