Protein preservation and DNA retrieval from ancient tissues. (1/404)

The retrieval of DNA from fossils remains controversial. To substantiate claims of DNA recovery, one needs additional information on the preservation of other molecules within the same sample. Flash pyrolysis with GC and MS was used to assess the quality of protein preservation in 11 archaeological and paleontological remains, some of which have yielded ancient DNA sequences authenticated via a number of criteria and some of which have consistently failed to yield any meaningful DNA. Several samples, including the Neanderthal-type specimen from which DNA sequences were recently reported, yielded abundant pyrolysis products assigned to 2,5-diketopiperazines of proline-containing dipeptides. The relative amounts of these products provide a good index of the amount of peptide hydrolysis and DNA preservation. Of these samples, four stem from arctic or subarctic regions, emphasizing the importance of cooler temperatures for the preservation of macromolecules. Flash pyrolysis with GC and MS offers a rapid and effective method for assessing fossils for the possibility of DNA preservation.  (+info)

Why hunter-gatherer populations do not show signs of pleistocene demographic expansions. (2/404)

The mitochondrial DNA diversity of 62 human population samples was examined for potential signals of population expansions. Stepwise expansion times were estimated by taking into account heterogeneity of mutation rates among sites. Assuming an mtDNA divergence rate of 33% per million years, most populations show signals of Pleistocene expansions at around 70,000 years (70 KY) ago in Africa and Asia, 55 KY ago in America, and 40 KY ago in Europe and the Middle East, whereas the traces of the oldest expansions are found in East Africa (110 KY ago for the Turkana). The genetic diversity of two groups of populations (most Amerindian populations and present-day hunter-gatherers) cannot be explained by a simple stepwise expansion model. A multivariate analysis of the genetic distances among 61 populations reveals that populations that did not undergo demographic expansions show increased genetic distances from other populations, confirming that the demography of the populations strongly affects observed genetic affinities. The absence of traces of Pleistocene expansions in present-day hunter-gatherers seems best explained by the occurrence of recent bottlenecks in those populations, implying a difference between Pleistocene (approximately 1,800 KY to 10 KY ago) and Holocene (10 KY to present) hunter-gatherers demographies, a difference that occurred after, and probably in response to, the Neolithic expansions of the other populations.  (+info)

Neanderthal cannibalism at Moula-Guercy, Ardeche, France. (3/404)

The cave site of Moula-Guercy, 80 meters above the modern Rhone River, was occupied by Neanderthals approximately 100,000 years ago. Excavations since 1991 have yielded rich paleontological, paleobotanical, and archaeological assemblages, including parts of six Neanderthals. The Neanderthals are contemporary with stone tools and faunal remains in the same tightly controlled stratigraphic and spatial contexts. The inference of Neanderthal cannibalism at Moula-Guercy is based on comparative analysis of hominid and ungulate bone spatial distributions, modifications by stone tools, and skeletal part representations.  (+info)

Mid-Pleistocene Acheulean-like stone technology of the Bose basin, South China. (4/404)

Stone artifacts from the Bose basin, South China, are associated with tektites dated to 803,000 +/- 3000 years ago and represent the oldest known large cutting tools (LCTs) in East Asia. Bose toolmaking is compatible with Mode 2 (Acheulean) technologies in Africa in its targeted manufacture and biased spatial distribution of LCTs, large-scale flaking, and high flake scar counts. Acheulean-like tools in the mid-Pleistocene of South China imply that Mode 2 technical advances were manifested in East Asia contemporaneously with handaxe technology in Africa and western Eurasia. Bose lithic technology is associated with a tektite airfall and forest burning.  (+info)

Rapid extinction of the moas (Aves: Dinornithiformes): model, test, and implications. (5/404)

A Leslie matrix population model supported by carbon-14 dating of early occupation layers lacking moa remains suggests that human hunting and habitat destruction drove the 11 species of moa to extinction less than 100 years after Polynesian settlement of New Zealand. The rapid extinction contrasts with models that envisage several centuries of exploitation.  (+info)

The initial domestication of goats (Capra hircus) in the Zagros mountains 10,000 years ago. (6/404)

Initial goat domestication is documented in the highlands of western Iran at 10,000 calibrated calendar years ago. Metrical analyses of patterns of sexual dimorphism in modern wild goat skeletons (Capra hircus aegagrus) allow sex-specific age curves to be computed for archaeofaunal assemblages. A distinct shift to selective harvesting of subadult males marks initial human management and the transition from hunting to herding of the species. Direct accelerator mass spectrometry radiocarbon dates on skeletal elements provide a tight temporal context for the transition.  (+info)

Pleistocene milestones on the out-of-Africa corridor at Gesher Benot Ya'aqov, israel. (7/404)

The Acheulean site of Gesher Benot Ya'aqov in the Dead Sea Rift of Israel documents hominin movements and technological development on a corridor between Africa and Eurasia. New age data place the site at 780,000 years ago (oxygen isotope stage 19), considerably older than previous estimates. The archaeological data from the site portray strong affinities with African stone tool traditions. The findings also reflect adroit technical skills and in-depth planning abilities, more advanced and complex than those of earlier archaeological occurrences in the Levant.  (+info)

Peopling the past: new perspectives on the ancient Maya. (8/404)

The new direction in Maya archaeology is toward achieving a greater understanding of people and their roles and their relations in the past. To answer emerging humanistic questions about ancient people's lives Mayanists are increasingly making use of new and existing scientific methods from archaeology and other disciplines. Maya archaeology is bridging the divide between the humanities and sciences to answer questions about ancient people previously considered beyond the realm of archaeological knowledge.  (+info)

The purpose of archaeology is to learn more about past societies and the development of the human race. Over 99% of the development of humanity has occurred within prehistoric cultures, who did not make use of writing, thereby no written records exist for study purposes. Without such written sources, the only way to understand prehistoric societies is through archaeology. Because archaeology is the study of past human activity, it stretches back to about 2.5 million years ago when we find the first stone tools - The Oldowan Industry. Many important developments in human history occurred during prehistory, such as the evolution of humanity during the Paleolithic period, when the hominins developed from the australopithecines in Africa and eventually into modern Homo sapiens. Archaeology also sheds light on many of humanitys technological advances, for instance the ability to use fire, the development of stone tools, the discovery of metallurgy, the beginnings of religion and the creation of ...

Introduction: Archeology is a scientific discipline that merges the humanities study of human activities, behavior, and thoughts with a scientific approach, methods, and techniques to this subject matter. Archeology is concerned with tools and other artifacts of human culture, heir relative contexts, and related environmental data. The archeologist attempts to reconstruct and interpret the past by analyzing, dating, and comparing systematically investigated sites and artifacts through the analysis of material remains, other evidence of human activity, and their contexts. There are two major types of archeology in the U.S.: archeology of everything preceding the earliest period of recorded history in a given area, or prehistoric archeology; and the archeology from the appearance in a given area of written records, referred to as document or text-aided historical archeology.. The concerns of archeologists can be summarized as follows:. Archeological sites and materials should be protected, ...
By Ben Marwick, University of Washington and University of Wollongong.. Recently we concluded the 2017 Summer School on Reproducible Research in Landscape Archaeology at the Freie Universität Berlin (17th-21th July), funded and jointly organised by Exc264 Topoi, CRC1266, and ISAAKiel. With a group of 15 archaeologists and geographers from Berlin, Kiel and Cologne, we spent a week learning advanced geostatistics and how to make our research more reproducible. Reproducibility is a relatively new concept for archaeology; it has only recently received some attention, and so we encountered many challenges in teaching and learning this unfamiliar subject. The general idea is that a piece of research, such as a publication, should contain enough information for another researcher to reproduce the results in that paper. In former times, when archaeology was simpler than today, this was relatively straightforward. However, that is not the case nowadays, with computers and complex software and algorithms ...

Chronology is archaeologys chief preoccupation and prerequisite. The Earliest Americans Theme Study recognizes three major Paleoindian intervals, a possible pre-Clovis one, and a post-Paleoindian one equivalent to what most archaeologists call the Early Archaic Period. Midwestern Paleoindian chronology rests on radiocarbon (and, secondarily, thermoluminescent) dating, typological cross-dating with well dated assemblages and industries elsewhere, geochronology and seriation. Despite the many sources of evidence and inference, Midwestern Paleoindian chronology is highly imperfect, to say the least. Few doubt that Paleoindian cultures arose more than 11,000 rcbp and endured at least for centuries. But many continue to doubt that Paleoindians were the first people in the New World, instead claiming that they were preceded by ancestral cultures reaching back perhaps millennia. Thus, the antiquity of first human occupation must be distinguished from Paleoindian antiquity.. Pre-Clovis Claims in the ...

Archaeology studies the development of humanity by examining surviving material remains (e.g. tombs, temples, settlements, skeletons, artefacts and the landscape context from which they were recovered). Through the information gained it is possible to trace our economic, cultural, social and spiritual developments through time. At Queens, Palaeoecology complements Archaeology by studying the nature and timing of environmental changes in the past, including climate change. This brings a highly integrated approach to assessing how human activities have been shaped by and, in turn, have impacted upon the natural environment and a means to disentangle human impact from natural variability.. Although, by their very nature, Archaeology and Palaeoecology are concerned with the past, both disciplines have a role in the present, as well as the future. The threats to our environment and landscape through urban, industrial and agricultural development have never been greater. Globally, archaeological and ...

Special to The PREVIEW. Navajo State Park will host three archaeology programs June 28-29.. Prior to the construction of Navajo Reservoir in the 1960s, an abundance of Navajo sites and rock art filled the canyons. This was the northern edge of the Dinetah, the old Navajo homeland, where, from the 1400s to the 1750s, the culture flourished and developed much of what marks the Navajo culture today. The rock art is connected to Navajo archeoastronomy and spirituality, said Janet Clawson-Cano, park naturalist.. At 9 a.m., June 28, learn about rock art and Navajo Reservoir at the visitors center. Kids will get to draw their own rock art image and learn about preservation and archaeology.. At 6 p.m., Clawson-Cano will present "Dinetah Rock Art and Navajo Reservoir Archaeology" at the visitors center.. At 9 a.m., June 29, hikers will gather at the Sambrito Wetlands trailhead and learn about the archaeological history of that area. Located in the northwestern section of the park, the Sambrito holds a ...

SCIENTIFIC CORRESPONDENCE. Were environmental or demographic factors the driving force behind Middle Stone Age innovations in southern Africa? Sir Past human responses to environmental changes have long interested archaeologists. During the last glacial cycle, southern Africa experienced marked climatic fluctuations, as recorded in ice-core records from West and East Antarctica.1 7 Two phases of technological and behavioural innovation, known as the Still Bay (SB) and Howiesons Poort (HP) industries, also occurred during this interval of the Middle Stone Age (MSA). Recently, we reported improved estimates for the start and end dates, and durations, of these two industries, and argued that the SB and HP did not reflect a response to environmental factors alone.8 11 We drew this conclusion for two reasons. First, we noted that the HP occurred during a period of climatic warming between c. 65 and 60 thousand years ago (kyr), regardless of which Antarctic ice core is chosen for comparison, whereas ...
Wessex Archaeology has just launched a new project to promote the regions marine heritage. This has been made possible by a £50,000 grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF). Archaeologists are inviting the public to join them to Time Travel by Water into the past on a voyage of discovery.. The project aims to bring school children and community groups across Wiltshire, Dorset, Somerset and Gloucestershire right up to date with the new ways marine heritage is being explored and some of the amazing new discoveries.. Time Team TV celebrity Phil Harding, whose day job is with Wessex Archaeology said I am excited by this project. Most people think of marine history as being about galleons and doubloons. That part of seafaring history is important, but an amazing range of other work is being done: on wrecks, in harbours, and all along the coast. Some of the most hi-tech kit you will ever see on an archaeological project is the scientific survey gear marine archaeologists use. Now you dont need ...

Archaeology - Interpretation: Excavation often seems to the general public the main and certainly the most glamorous aspect of archaeology; but fieldwork and excavation represent only a part of the archaeologists work. The other part is the interpretation in cultural and historical contexts of the facts established-by chance, by fieldwork, and by digging-about the material remains of mans past. This task of interpretation has five main aspects. The first concern is the accurate and exact description of all the artifacts concerned. Classification and description are essential to all archaeological work, and, as in botany and zoology, the first requirement is a good and
Imported ancient Etruscan amphoras and a limestone press platform, discovered at the ancient port site of Lattara in southern France, have provided the earliest known biomolecular archaeological evidence of grape wine and winemaking -- and point to the beginnings of a Celtic or Gallic vinicultural industry in France circa 500-400 BCE. Details of the discovery are published as "The Beginning of Viniculture in France" in the June 3, 2013 issue of Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS). Dr. Patrick McGovern, Director of the Biomolecular Archaeology Laboratory at the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology and author of Ancient Wine: The Search for the Origins of Viniculture (Princeton University Press, 2006) is the lead author on the paper, which was researched and written in collaboration with colleagues from France and the United States. ...

Wessex Archaeology was commissioned by Hyder Consulting (UK) Ltd (the Client) to undertake an archaeological evaluation of land at the former Defence Estates Head Quarters, High Street, Durrington, Wiltshire NGR 415400 144700, hereafter referred to as the Site. The Site is proposed for residential development with the western part of the area left as open space. Twelve trenches were excavated, varying between four and thirty metres long. Archaeological features were found in five of the trenches, in the north of the Site, two of these trenches were located in a paddock, the other three were located to the north of the trackway bisecting the field to the rear of the Red House. The recorded features consisted of pits and ditches primarily of Iron Age and Romano-British date. The same area of the Site was found to contain extensive deposits of colluvium, or hillwash, that was deposited between

Masters degree in Classical archaeology and Ancient history at Lund University 2009, doctoral student since 2012.. My focus is on classical archaeology, and I have participated in several field excavations around the Mediterranean (Italy, Greece and Cyprus). I am also a member of the Swedish Pompeii Project (Italy) since 2006, which has led me to my field of research, Greeting the visitor in Pompeii. Roman fauces mosaics contextualised, on entrances (fauces) to Pompeian domestic dwellings and their mosaic floors. I am interested in the private entrance as a public space, and thus how it was decorated. Since the studys focus is on entrance mosaics, the atrium house and its fauces, will be investigated, which will include some 30 houses with figurative and ornamental mosaics, some with epigraphic inscriptions. Furthermore, I will study the location of the houses at Pompeii, as to see if this was of any importance for the house owner and his (presumed) display of cultural status. ...
Practice theories offer some of the most powerful ways of transforming patterns of archaeological material into animated interpretations of past life. Constituting a broad and diverse tradition, different forms of practice theory have been influential in archaeology since the late 1980s. Initially the works of sociologist Anthony Giddens and anthropologist Pierre Bourdieu were most prominent in archaeological discussions about practice, but a range of other thinkers have been marshalled to illuminate the way humans act in the world, from Marx to Heidegger and from Wittgenstein to Goffman. More recently, the increasing interest in materiality, drawing upon theorists like Gell and Latour, also has a practice dimension. A number of scholars are currently engaged with these kinds of approaches in Roman archaeology (e.g. Eckardt, Gardner, Lodwick, Revell, Van Oyen).. The aim of this workshop is to bring out some of the similarities and differences across the spectrum of practice approaches, and to ...
In each year of your degree you will take a number of individual modules, normally valued at 0.5 or 1.0 credits, adding up to a total of 4.0 credits for the year.

NOVOSIBIRSK, RUSSIA-Excavations at a 4,000-year-old site in Siberia have revealed a thin bronze plate that could have been used as a shaving implement, reports the Siberian Times. Expedition leader Vyacheslav Molodin of the Siberian Institute of Archaeology and Ethnography says that while his team has provisionally identified the artifact as a razor, it was probably also used as a knife. The practice of shaving likely dates far back in prehistory, but appears to have become particularly popular in the Bronze Age, as evidenced by the fact that many graves of the period contain what are believed to be razor knives. To read about another Bronze Age discovery in Siberia, see "Elite Warriors Bone Armor Unearthed." ...
DIS Th 4:00-4:50pm LEC MW 2:30-3:20pm How do archaeologists learn how old something is? How do they figure out where to dig? How do they make sense out of their discoveries? This course will introduce you to archaeology, its goals, methods, and findings. Archaeologists are famous for using other peoples garbage as their main source of information, so this is essentially a course about trash. We will look at how archaeologists use explore issues of food and eating in ancient times, trade, politics, world views, and technology. You will learn about scientific methods that archaeologists use, including dating, sampling, excavation strategies, and materials science. In the process we will be discussing specific ancient time periods like the Neolithic, cultures like the ancient Mississippians, and phenomena such as the development of irrigation agriculture in the Andes. You will gain an understanding of what we think happened in the past through the lens of the things people left behind. You will ...

The earliest evidence of any type on the Greek mainland date to the Early or Middle Pleistocene, but it must be noted that these are surface finds and the majority can be found in the region of Epirus. This of course is stone tools which are the most durable type of material culture. The artefacts from the later portion of the Middle Pleistocene are a rare occurrence, relatively dated solely upon the morphological comparison and so have wide temporal ranges. The earliest in situ artefact is the Acheulean handaxe of Kokkinopilos relatively dated to the Lower Palaeolithic, some suggest around 250 ka. The layer above the one with the handaxe imbedded within dated to around 91 ka by thermoluminescence (TL) dating. The. archaeologists that wrote this paper, Tourloukis and Karkanas visited this site and spotted a retouched bifacial core dated to 207 ka, using the post-infrared Feldspar infrared stimulated luminescence (pIR IRSL) method. Many other artefacts were also found sticking out of the ...

After tea it was my turn to face the music, and I gave a brief account of what I have been doing recently. It was nearly 50 years ago that I launched Current Archaeology, but now I have succeeded in handing over the management of the business to my son Robert, under whom the magazines are flourishing. We now have three magazines, Current Archaeology, World Archaeology, and Military History: each of them has its own editor, and I am Editor-in-Chief, but my main task is not to interfere.. But having spent my life doing archaeology in bits and pieces, jumping from the Palaeolithic one day to the Medieval the next day, and from one part of the country to another, and more recently from one country to another, I felt it was about time that I put it all together and write what I ambitiously call "A History of the World". In practice I am concentrating on the Greeks and Romans, and why I believe they introduced an entirely new form of civilisation.. In my fifty years of doing Current Archaeology I have ...
Through its membership in the American School of Prehistoric Research, Wesleyan received over 1500 lithic and bone artifacts from the cave sites of el-Wad, Tabun, Skhul and Kebara, located on the western slope of Mount Carmel in Israel. These sites were occupied by Neanderthals and early modern humans, with the oldest layers in the caves dating back to ca. 400,000 years ago. The artifacts originate from some of the earliest systematic excavations at these sites, carried out jointly by the American School and the British School of Archaeology in Jerusalem in the late 1920s and 1930s. Much of this work was done under the direction of pioneering prehistoric archaeologist Dorothy Garrod and her largely female-led excavation teams. Wesleyans collection contains artifacts from successive layers of the deeply stratified deposits, allowing students to observe thousands of years of change in stone tool technology..

The Thracians are the most powerful people in the world, except, of course, for the Indians," wrote the fifth-century B.C. Greek historian Herodotus. In citing the Thracians, he was referring to the group of tribes who inhabited a large part of the Balkans and parts of Western Anatolia-from the Aegean to the Carpathian Mountains, and as far as the Caucasus-from approximately the twelfth century B.C. to the sixth century A.D. Despite their fearsome reputation, relatively little is known about them. Few examples of their writing survive, and what other information we have comes from Greek literary sources and Thracian burial mounds. Many of these mounds have been excavated since the end of the Cold War, when their former lands, Bulgaria and Romania in particular, became accessible to well-trained archaeologists and modern methodology.. This past November, archaeologist Diana Gergova of the National Institute of Archaeology at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences entered the burial chamber of an ...

El Fin del Mundo is an unusually intact Clovis site in northern Sonora. Intensive study of the site began in 2007, and has located two bone beds, the upper one with remains of hunted gopmphotheres. This bone bed dates to about 13,000 BP. Additional Paleoindian loci include a campsite. Some of the stone used at El Fin del Mundo was quarried at SON K:1:3 (Sánchez et al. 2009; see also Holliday et al 2009; Mentzer and Holliday 2009). Southeast of Hermosillo, in the Rio Matape drainage basin, SON:O:3:1 has loci extending over a 2.5 by 1.5 km area. The site was discovered and collected by one of Robless volunteers, and was tested in 2005, yielding hundreds of Clovis artifacts in addition to later remains (Gaines et al. 2009). Sánchez and Gaines (2009:4) mention this site and also "SON N:11:20-21, a large site located about 10 miles [16 km] from the Gulf of California." They also mention "two fluted points reportedly found in coastal shell midden contexts near Tastiota and Desemboque de los Seris, ...
The usefulness of Stable Isotope Analysis in Archaeology (Theme 3-Subsistence and diet). Key facts:. · Every chemical in nature has isotopes.. · The main difference is their atomic mass.. · Different isotopes have different amounts of protons and neutrons but still remain stable.. · C14 is an unstable isotope due to the radioactive nature of the neutrons and protons.. · This means that whilst C14 decays at the rate of the half life, stable isotopes do not decay so are useful in the archaeological record.. · Key isotopes to analyse: Carbon, Nitrogen and Sulphur-all link to diet.. · Analysis takes place using collagen (bone) or tooth enamel.. How do discuss it within an essay:. 1. When food is eaten and digested it already has a carbon and/or nitrogen trace within it.. 2.

Like the rest of the Old Citys streets, these straight roads are narrow but, unlike the others, they preserve a historical skeleton of sorts that forms the basis of the Old City we know today. This skeleton was created, most archaeologists agree, not during Jewish, Christian or Muslim rule, but during the Roman period, when the city of Aelia Capitolina was built on the ruins of Jerusalem following the destruction of the Second Temple in 70 AD.. Ironically, it is actually the streets of this imperial and pagan city - which supposedly left behind no cultural or spiritual heritage for modern Jerusalem - that have bequeathed to the city the skeleton structure that has survived to this day.. In the history of Jewish Jerusalem, Aelia Capitolina is the very embodiment of defeat and destruction - a reminder of the humiliation of the Second Temples destruction, which erected a pagan temple in its place. This image has distanced Aelia Capitolina from the fathers of Israeli archaeology, who were ...

Themes: / Science Fiction / Archaeology / Climate Change / Aliens / Space / Space Exploration /. Climate change has Earth on the brink of disaster. The only viable solution is terraforming other planets to ensure survival. For a small group of archaeologists, however, terraforming is the worst possible solution. The only suitable planet is also the one planet with the most promising artifacts of an unknown alien race. Known as the Monument Makers, the aliens buildings feature a seemingly uncrackable code on them. The team is looking for the alien equivalent of the Rosetta Stone and must race against time to finish excavations before terraforming begins. Despite the fact that the book begins by talking about climate change, which always gives me a sinking feeling, that is just the pretext for launching readers into a mystery. The teams quest takes them to outer space, other planets, and into extreme danger as they follow the Monument Makers trail to discover their whereabouts and why every ...

I loved the museum. Just being surrounded by all these amazing artefacts was a motivation by itself to come to work everyday with a smile on my face. I loved taking the long route to the office through the Dinosaur and Ice Age halls, walking by the T-Rex, Mastodons and Mammoths everyday. In Dr. Stanfords office were all the prehistoric projectile points that I was studying. It is just a lot of fun to actually study real artefacts, especially when you have been reading about those very artefacts for years. Besides the artefacts I truly enjoyed being in this environment where something always seems to be happening. People are passionate about their work and are enthusiastic to tell you all about it but they are also very much interested in your work. I have felt very much accepted by many different people during my stay in Washington DC. For me it has been a great adventure. Through my contacts at the museum I got into contact with archaeologists in Nevada and Alaska and I got invited to visit ...
This is my first post for the Day of Archaeology event. Id like to begin by thanking the organizers, advisors, and sponsors for conceiving of and making this event happen. Its important that we discuss archaeology across the world and get our work out to a broad audience. All most people know about archaeology is what they see on the Discovery Channel or from Indiana Jones.. The road I took to get to a career in archaeology involved several u-turns and a few speed bumps. Here is a quick history. When I was a kid I wanted to be an astronaut, an airline pilot, or an archaeologist. Since my family didnt have the money for me to realize any of those goals I did what I thought was the next best thing and joined the Navy right out of high school. I spent the next four and a half years working on EA-6B Prowlers as an aviation electronics technician. During that time I went on a cruise on the USS Enterprise for six months in the Mediterranean and in the Persian Gulf. We saw some great cities with ...

The Capital letter H at the end of the site number for CA-SFR-04/H means that there are historic-period items and features found at the site as well as prehistoric ones. These are mostly remnants of foundations, fill, and debris from the military and possibly the pre-military use of Yerba Buena Island by Thomas Dowling. These remains are sparse, considering how many people have used the island in the last 200 years. This is because trash was often dumped directly into the Bay or hauled away rather than being left to accumulate on the island ...

Donna C. Roper, professional archeologists, was born to Norman E. and Laura (Dietz) Roper in Oneonta, New York, June 20, 1947. She became involved with archaeology at Hartwich College in Oneona where she earned a B.A. in History with Departmanental Honors in 1968. She completed her Masters and Doctoral degrees, respectively, in Anthropology with an amphasis in archaeology at Indiana University, Bloomington, in 1970 and the University of Missouri, Columbia, in 1975.. Donna Roper was a dedicated and prolific archaeologist. She directed projects in Illinois, Iowa, Missouri, Ohio, Nebraska, Kansas, and other states. She held research positions at the American Archaeology Division of the University of Missouri and the Illinois State Museum in the1970s. In 1980 she joined Gilbert/Commonwealth Inc. of Jackson, Michigan as Senior Archaeologist and Project Manager, becoming a partner with Commonwealth Cultural Resources Group of Jackson, Michigan, in 1988.. Her projects for Comonwealth took her to ...
Examples and brief details of past and ongoing projects are given below. Many of the interesting why and how questions in archaeology and physical anthropology can be re-phrased in terms of when questions. Again, the connecting theme in the projects described below is the use of optical dating to provide chronological frameworks within which hypotheses can be tested and histories developed.. Previous project: The Hofmeyr skull and the evolution of modern humans. A number of genetic studies of living people indicate that modern humans evolved in Africa 150-200,000 yrs ago and that a relatively small group of these moved out of Africa to colonize Europe and Asia between 65 000 and 25 000 years ago. However, some other DNA evidence argues against this Africa origin and exodus model, suggesting that archaic, non-African people, such as the Neanderthals of Europe, made significant contributions to the genomes of modern humans in Europe and Asia. The out of Africa genetic theory predicts that humans ...

The fort is a scheduled ancient monument, so it is illegal to disturb the ground here without special consent. However, moles are not subject to scheduled monument legislation, and they continue to dig around inside the fort disturbing archaeological deposits and bringing pieces of pottery and other finds to the surface where they can be picked up from molehills. Ideally, the moles would be removed from the site, but this is not currently a feasible option. Consequently the Altogether Archaeology volunteers decided to work with the moles to carry out an investigation of the fort. Using canes stuck in the ground, the fort was divided up into a grid of 10×10 metre squares, and the molehills within each square were sieved and all finds retained and accurately plotted on a large-scale plan. The finds will now be analysed and it will be interesting to see what they tell us about life in the fort throughout the Roman occupation. It is hoped to repeat the survey each spring, and that all the finds ...

The Conservation Research Laboratory (CRL), directed by Dr. Donny L. Hamilton, is one of the oldest continuously operated conservation laboratories that deals primarily with archaeological material from shipwrecks and other underwater sites. Operating under the the Center for Maritime Archaeology and Conservation, CRL plays an important role in the Nautical Archaeology Program at Texas A&M University (TAMU), and works closely with all of the excavation projects of the TAMU-affiliated Institute of Nautical Archaeology in developing new conservation strategies. In fact, the Nautical Archaeology Programs graduate students are a big part of the work done at CRL and is an integral part of each students academic training in artifact conservation.. CRL deals with large complex archaeological projects year-round and consists of two laboratories: one is used primarily to teach conservation classes to students at TAMU; it is also equipped to conduct conservation of small inorganic and organic artifacts. ...
Time Teams genesis is a well-rehearsed story. Its prototype was Timesigns, a four-part series that aired in 1991. Exploring the archaeology of the Roadford Reservoir, Devon, this came about after Tim Taylor approached Mick Aston to present the series. With Phil Harding also on board, three members of the future Time Team core were in place. Yet despite bringing the past to life using the familiar ingredients of excavation, landscape survey and reconstructions - including Phil felling a tree with a flint axe - Timesigns is a very different beast.. Available to view on 4oD (www.channel4.com/programmes/timesigns/4oD), watching it now provides a salutatory lesson in just how revolutionary the Time Team format was. Slower paced, Timesigns has Mick talking directly to the camera in a style more akin to a history documentary or Open University broadcast. There is a focus on interesting, previously discovered, artefacts, while pipe music lends an almost mystical air to proceedings. Jim Mower ...

Despite the obvious differences between the anthropogenic-based field, archaeology, and the geologic oriented field, paleontology, there are numerous overlapping similarities. Such as, the excavation process or the incomplete record that we are faced to interpret. Focusing on these similarities made it easy to tailor my experience towards my own benefit. In the same manner that you begin a research project I began to ask: What do I want to gain from this? How can I implement my experience and apply it to this internship? And it didnt take long to release that I was not the only one asking these questions. After a few weeks of working as an intern, Stephanie asked me if I would be interested in putting together a lithics type collection as a reference for other volunteers. This was an excellent way to develop my rock and mineral identification, while explaining some of the basic geologic principles that are involved in identification ...

The Acheulian culture endured in the Levant for over a million years during the Lower Paleolithic period (1.4 million to 400,000 years ago). Its use of bifaces or large cutting tools like hand axes and cleavers is considered a hallmark of its sophistication - or, some researchers would argue, the lack thereof.. A new Tel Aviv University-led study published in Natures Scientific Reports on September 10 reveals that these early humans also crafted tiny flint tools out of recycled larger discarded instruments as part of a comprehensive animal-butchery tool kit. This suggests that the Acheulians were, in fact, far more sophisticated than previously believed.. The international team of researchers, led by Dr. Flavia Venditti and Prof. Ran Barkai of TAUs Department of Archeology and Ancient Near Eastern Cultures together with colleagues from La Sapienza Rome University, discovered tiny flint flakes in the Lower Paleolithic Late Acheulian site of Revadim. In the past, this site yielded various stone ...

This workshop seeks to examine the potentials and practical problems of underground archaeological research. The presence of later, often historically and artistically valuable, structures and paintings as well as multi-layered stratigraphy, environmental and soil conditions can affect the way archaeologists operate underground and represent a challenge to research and conservation in situ. Working underground can also present particular challenges with regard to safety, communication and equipment use. Nonetheless the latest improvements in non destructive analysis and GPR data acquisition have the potential to enhance researching in underground spaces. Collecting information can be done faster and more accurately now than ever before, with a significant improvement in the degree of detail achievable today ...

Due to the canyons desert climate and the challenges of traveling through this harsh land, most people lived either along the river, near dependable water sources in side canyons, on the rims, or elsewhere where they found a favorable environment. The Colorado River offered a steady source of water and broad, level terraces on which to build their homes and grow their corn, beans, and squash. About a thousand years ago, ancestral Puebloan people lived in small communities in this section of the canyon. The canyon is wide at river level here, and trails connect the inner canyon to both the North and South Rims. Todays Tanner Trail starts here at Lipan Point, following an ancient route from the rim to the river. This route, and others like it, was likely used by the people who lived at the sites you will visit during the virtual tour.
