A number of these gorgets are in the collections of the Texas Archeological Research Laboratory at The University of Texas at Austin, and I have documented them as part of the recent study of a 15thth century engraved gorget from the Pipe site 41AN67 in the holdings of the Gregg County Historical Museum in Longview, Texas. It is really exciting to examine artifacts from the ancient peoples of the Lower Pecos region of Texas at TARL and explore these questions. Tori Pagano collected a discontinuous series of eight pilot samples for me, from sandy sediments representing about a year span of the Late Holocene. The gorgets occur in Middle Caddo ca. Most or nearly all the juveniles will fall through standard field screens, even for the larger species, so fine mesh sampling is essential if the complete spectrum of species is to be recovered. Many bulbs, roots, and tubers are more palatable and nutritious after the long slow cooking that earth ovens provide Wandsnider

Dan and I judged that flotation processing would allow us to recover small seeds or bulb fragments that might be present but not readily recognizable among all the dirt and wood charcoal. In the entire vast area of the Big Bend more than 12, square miles, not counting parts of Culberson, Hudspeth, and Reeves countiesno formal archeomalacological studies have been done until recently, as far as I know.

Although snails are not especially temperature-sensitive, they make good paleo-moisture proxies, and because vegetation and moisture are correlated, snails can also hint at past vegetative cover.

Geological Society of America, Memoir Any heavier artifacts still in the soil can be separated by pouring vn266b remaining sludge through a screen.

Nutritional studies of various species of chenopodium show they can be important sources of protein, minerals especially ironanti-oxidants, and anti-microbials Navruz-Varli and Sanlier ; Poonia and Upadhayay How to Obtain, Measure, Season, and Burn. References Cited Cheatum, E. An ongoing digitization and records inventory project is underway at TARL. Last fall, an archeologist working at TARL recognized a rare opportunity to look for plant remains from bn26b site that had been excavated nearly 80 years ago.

All the photos are taken in cross-polarized light, or xpl. Davis Site collected burned corn cobs and beans but not usually wood charcoal. But England is a wet place replete with snails, and while one-liter samples may be adequate there, Texas is a lot drier, so my target sample size is usually about liters.

However, the s Smith Rockshelter collection is housed at the Texas Archeological Research Lab because the shelter, at the time, was on private property. Figures 4 and bn2666b.

At the time, we were excited to offer many interactive features for maps, graphics, and student learning activities using Bn266g technology. If proper sampling is done, enough specimens can often be recovered to allow some rudimentary quantitative methods to be applied.

Olivine is an igneous mineral forming deep within volcanic vents or channels. Given the abundance of bison bone at the site, pit cooking of bison is a strong possibility.

Site locations in Brewster and Val Verde Co. The Texas Archeological Research Laboratory. The hope is that the detailed analyses of these Titus phase ceramic vessel assemblages in East Texas will be of use in continued studies of the social and political organization of Titus phase settlements and communities in East Texas.


The fragment was too small and brittle to identify conclusively, but the closest match appears to be povertyweed Baccharis spp. Plain and engraved gorgets are rare occurrences on ancestral Caddo sites in the southern Caddo area, as they have been b2n66b in burial features at only 13 sites in Southwest Arkansas, Northwest Louisiana, southeastern Oklahoma, and East Texas Table 1.

What clues did they leave for us? Hodges Engraved, VesselBn26b. Journal of Anthropological Archaeology Shoshones used the salve to kill lice as well.

For several months this year, I have been focused on the study of ancestral Caddo ceramic vessels in the Texas Archeological Research Laboratory, The University of Texas at Austin whole vessel collections from 20 different Titus phase sites, dating generally from ca.

We also hoped to recover plant material such as grass stems, grape leaves Vitis spp. This method is what I used for the Rob Roy samples. Sanders site Figure 1and no other site has more than three gorgets see Table 1. At least one site 41CC; Treece A database, which willhouse all excavation and survey data, will facilitate a more robust understanding of the extent of the WPA project in our local area.

In hand samples, or gem forms, olivine is olive green, hence the name, and has vitreous luster.
