Additional Information In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content: Although a number of worthwhile collaborative unions between archaeologists and Native Americans have been forged in recent years, a substantial proportion of the cooperative effort has been dedicated to improving communication methods often within a federal regulatory format and to managing cultural resource programs and sites often on tribal lands more effectively. Currently, there are too few examples in the mainstream literature demonstrating how such partnerships lead to a more meaningful interpretation of archaeological phenomena. In addressing precisely how Native American partnerships can lead to new insights and alternate ways of investigating the archaeological record, this chapter describes particular circumstances that developed in — at the Hickory Bluff site in Dover, Delaware, and the learning process that resulted from the dialogue and collaboration. It is important to state at the outset that this chapter describes only the experiences of two archaeologists involved in the Hickory Bluff investigations. Our observations are not necessarily the perceptions of the Native peoples or of anyone in the state or federal government who participated in this process. As part of federal and state regulatory planning procedures, background research and archaeological investigations were initiated which indicated that numerous archaeological sites were present in the region Custer and Cunningham Intensive surveys, site evaluations, and excavations in the highway corridor were performed over a year period, leading to the preservation of hundreds of sites and the retrieval of substantive information on paleoenvironments and Native American occupational history, settlement patterns, subsistence, and material culture.

George Catlin was inspired to paint the sport after witnessing a game in Indian Territory in Games and Sports Games and sports appear to be universal features of human culture, both past and present. Archaeological investigations have uncovered numerous artifacts from game play in sites around the world. These include implements related to games of physical skill, such as balls and hoops, game boards, board game pieces, and playing cards for games of strategy, and dice, used in games of chance.

Early athletic games, or sports, are well known from archaeological and narrative sources. A variety of art forms, including painting and sculpture, from around the world commonly depict play in games and sports. The remains of the ancient Greek Olympic games, often dated to BCE, are well known and include both the site where games were held but also implements, such as javelins and discuses.

In ancient Rome, a variety of sports, some transformed from Greek predecessors, were held, initially in gymnasia and palaestrae and later in large stadia, such as the Circus Maximus, and amphitheaters, such as the Colosseum. Popular sports included chariot racing, held in the Circus Maximus, and gladiatorial combats held in the Colosseum.

Tree-Ring Dating Dendrochronology Dr. Ron Towner from the Laboratory of Tree-Ring Research at the University of Arizona explains the principles behind dendrochronology and why this dating method is valuable to archaeologists. Ron demonstrates how to accurately count tree-rings, and discusses the importance of patterns and master chronologies.

Stratigraphy, carbon dating and cross-dating are a few of the methods used by archaeologists working on site. In addition to these procedures, students learn about site survey, analysis, recording.

Biography Jim Brown is an archaeologist with broad interests in the aboriginal cultures of the North America, past and present. His research has been directed towards detailed examination of social and cultural complexity in the Eastern Woodlands of North America. Critical to this endeavor has been an effort to move the archaeological debate from typically parochial concerns to a globally based framework that allows the archaeological record of the Eastern Woodlands to be examined cross-culturally.

Currently, he has been concentrating on religious and social changes over the past years. Iconography has been employed as a route to the study of religion, canonical representation and craft specialization. He is a recipient of grants and fellowships from the National Science Foundation, National Endowment for the Humanities, National Park Service and various state agencies. His books include The Spiro Ceremonial Center: Price , Prehistoric Hunters and Gatherers: The Emergence of Cultural Complexity , and other co-edited works.

He serves on the board of directors of the Center for American Archeology Kampsville , and has served as commissioner of the Illinois and Michigan Canal National Heritage Corridor Commission, the Board of directors of the Illinois State Museum including chairman of the board.

Why Anthropology?

Rethinking the Medieval Frontier Few topics in medieval studies have as much current relevance and activity as frontiers and borders. Yet approaches to their study in the Middle Ages are often untheorised, and compare, if at all, only to often outdated studies of the Yet approaches to their study in the Middle Ages are often untheorised, and compare, if at all, only to often outdated studies of the ancient or modern world.

A fully comparative approach to the possibilities of what it meant to establish, live in or contest a frontier or border zone shown by the societies of late Antiquity and the Middle Ages can power the development of a new shared understanding of the processes at work where borders are laid down or transgressed. The project Rethinking the Medieval Frontier has been exploring such ideas since

Chronological dating, or simply dating, is the process of attributing to an object or event a date in the past, allowing such object or event to be located in a previously established usually requires what is commonly known as a “dating method”. Several dating methods exist, depending on different criteria and techniques, and some very well known examples of disciplines using.

This publication listed the numerous well known Trust properties related to the Jacobites — Culloden, Killiecrankie, Glenshiel and Glencoe, amongst others, but also touched on some less-well-known connections. It was a relatively straightforward process to scan through this excellent publication and pick out names of places which are part of Trust properties or at least closely associated with them.

Obviously it goes without saying that Culloden has the strongest link and the vast majority of names listed in the book were at the battle itself, if they had not already been wounded or killed in the preceding campaign or captured at Carlisle. Probably the Trust property with the most men serving in the ranks at Culloden was Glencoe. Despite the fact that the major settlement at the mouth of the glen lies outwith the Trust property boundary, the settlement sites of Inverigan, Achnacon and Achtriachtan, which are on Trust land, are mentioned frequently.

The latter is of interest as it suggests there was a change house, or Inn, at Achtriachtan. Could this be the change house kept by Alexander MacDonald? I wonder if these men were recruited from the initial raising of the standard, on their own doorstep, and marched with the army all the way down to Derby and back. One of his two servants, who is recorded as the gardener at Drum, James Anthony, was captured but eventually pardoned. From the town of Alloa there was: From Dunkeld James Mann, a baker, was taken at Carlisle and was transported while his fellow townsman, William Miller, a 14 year old waggoner, was captured at Culloden but later discharged.

Unraveling the Secrets of Archaeology through Chemistry.

When we think of archaeology, most of us think first of its many spectacular finds: the legendary city of Troy, Tutankhamun’s golden tomb, the three-million-year-old footprints at Laetoli, the mile-high city at Machu Picchu, the cave paintings at Lascaux.

It is based on a chrono-typological classification already made by the author in the PhD research. The documentation is collected in order to examine in depth the phenomenon of the adaptation of the ceramic repertoire of Phoenician tradition in the colonial sphere. It allows us to highlight the dual cultural connections of the western Phoenician production: In this paper a typological and chronological framework of the evolution of open forms of the Phoenician table pottery is outlined, starting from the Iron Age documentation of the Syro-Palestinian coast 11th-6th centuries BC up to the colonial elaborations of the Iberian Peninsula 9th-6th centuries BC.

The definition of the chrono-typological horizons identified in both areas is combined with an analysis of the issues affecting the absolute chronology of the Iron Age in the Mediterranean basin. The analysis is also carried out through the comparison with other archaic contexts recently come to light, for example, at Utica and Carthage. The documentation of the Syro-Palestinian coast, the homeland of the Phoenician culture, from the Iron Age 11th-6th century BC , is compared here with the ceramic found in the Iberian Peninsula, on a period going from the 8th to the 6th century BC.

The goal is to identify the prototypes that were imported from the motherland, their subsequent development in the colonial area and the morphologies that rose in the Iberian Peninsula, also taking into account the regional differences.

We find a corresponding statistically significant drop in absolute population using an extended version of a previously published simulation method. Case study 2 uses this refined simulation method to test for a settlement gap identified in oral historical records of descendant Tsimshian First Nations communities from the Prince Rupert Harbour region of the Pacific Northwest region of British Columbia, Canada. We conclude that our technical refinement extends the utility of radiocarbon simulation methods and can provide a rigorous test of demographic predictions derived from a range of historical sources.

In this study we apply the method of summed calibrated probability distributions to a set of published radiocarbon dates from the Republic of Serbia in order to reconstruct population dynamics in the Early Neolithic in this part of the Central Balkans. These results are broadly consistent with the predictions of the Neolithic Demographic Transition theory and the patterns of population booms and busts detected in other regions of Europe.

These results suggest that the cultural process that underlies the patterns observed in Central and Western Europe was also in operation in the Central Balkan Neolithic and that the population increase component of this process can be considered as an important factor for the spread of the Neolithic as envisioned in the demic diffusion hypothesis.

The Petra Archeological Park In , Jordan set aside a hundred odd square miles of rugged canyon country as a national park. This park not only contains the ancient city of Petra with it’s priceless monuments, but all through the park are steep walled canyons with old caravan roads that once moved exotic eastern goods to the Egyptian, Greek and Roman Empires. For several years, even before its inscription on the List, Petra had benefited from international co-operation.

During the period to , studies were carried out by the World Bank, in collaboration with experts from UNESCO, with a view to establishing a new residential areAto house the peoples living in tombs dating back to the Nabatacan era and carved in the rose-red rock of Petra.

Archaeological contributions can be made by observing the evolution of consciousness, but with a view that incorporates the notion of cross-cultural differences. One of cognitive archaeology’s objectives is to observe the occurrence of symbolism in various societies in order to understand the links in cognitive processes between cultures.

Within the archaeological framework of the so-called Tophet sanctuaries, a relevant role could be Currently, according to the pottery analysis, all the archaic Tophets Carthage, Sulky and Motya seem to have been established independently around the mid-8th century BC. Their ceramic corpora include vessels derived from or inspired by Levantine prototypes, together with new shapes, sometimes assimilated or reworked from other repertoires.

Patterns of distribution, function, religious and cultural significance of these ceramic hallmarks are here discussed. Starting from the second half of the 6th century BC, the influence of Greek culture over the Pun Sicily was the favoured setting for this process, marked by the alternating defeats and victories in battles that featured the history of the island throughout the 5th and 4th centuries BC.

Employs a global and holistic perspective to examine the economic, social, political, cultural, and ideological integration of society. The comparative, cross-cultural method distinctive to anthropology is used to explore the diverse ideas and behavior that characterize humanity and the human condition. Presents the fundamental questions that cultural anthropologists ask, the methods they use to answer these questions, and some of the uses of anthropological knowledge.

Self-reflection and critical analysis of one’s own world view assumptions and cultural belief system are fundamental objectives of the course. A premise of the course is that the human form and human behavior have evolved together and neither can be fully understood or appreciated without a full understanding of the other.
