An excel spreadsheet containing the zooarchaeological data from AZ BB:13:6.
An Excel spreadsheet containing the zooarchaeological data from Mission Cocóspera. While some human remains were uncovered during excavation, that data is excluded from this dataset.
The Mesoamerican Radiocarbon (MesoRAD) database compiles radiocarbon dates and isotopic data from archaeological sites in across Mesoamerica. The initial dataset from MesoRAD is a compilation of 14C dates from the Maya lowlands. We will be expanding the database to other parts of Mesoamerica soon. If you would like to submit your data to MesoRAD, please visit our website for more information: http://www.mesorad.com
This database contains 32863 tree ring dates from archaeological sites in new Mexico, Arizona, Colorado and Utah that Kohler was able to collect. All date determinations were made by the Laboratory for Tree Ring Research at the University of Arizona. The database contains site numbers and site names, lab (LTRR) numbers, references where available, the outer date (AD), the outer symbol, and the confidence level. This confidential version of the database contains site locations; the...

Middle and Late Archaic faunal database from the Tree Row Site (11F53), Fulton County, Illinois
Middle Archaic and Late Archaic faunal assemblage from the White Bend Site (11HA938), Hancock County, Illinois.
Late Middle-Early Late Archaic faunal database from Broglio Site (11WM80), Williamson County, Illinois.
The database includes gastropods identified and analyzed by James Theler (University of Wisconsin, Madison). The gastropods were recovered in the heavy fraction from flotation samples, usually 15 liters in volume, from Excavation Units C, D, and F from the 1980 excavations in the West Shelter at Modoc Rock Shelter.
This data set contains the faunal data recovered by 1/16 inch waterscreening during the 1980 excavations conducted at Modoc Rock Shelter (11R5). Modoc Rock Shelter is in the central Mississippi River valley in Randolph County, Illinois. The site is on the National Register of Historic Places and is a National Historic Landmark. Excavation was conducted by Bonnie Styles, Melvin Fowler, and Steven Ahler under the auspices of the Illinois State Museum and the University of...
Faunal identifications from flotation made by Andrea Boon as part of her MA thesis research. There are no other flotation bone identifications for this horizon.
Gastropod remains from the 1956 field season deep excavation in the West Shelter area. Gastropods were recovered via either hand picking or screening through 1/4" (6.4mm) mesh. In 1991, a sample of 1956 strata was chosen by Steven R. Ahler to represent a contiguous cross-section of the 1956 excavations. The gastropod samples from the 1956 excavation were identified and analyzed by James L. Theler (University of Wisconsin-LaCrosse). In 2015, Mona Colburn (Illinois State Museum) entered...
Vertebrate faunal remains excavated under the direction of Howard D. Winters during June 1961 at the Riverton Site, Illinois (11CW170). Remains were screened with unspecified mesh size; however, it is presumed that 1/4" mesh was used. Dr. Paul Parmalee analyzed the faunal remains. Dr. Parmalee only recorded attributes for the following variables: taxon, element, completeness (whole vs fragmentary), the number of identified specimens, and miscellaneous comments.
The 1980 excavations at Modoc Rock Shelter collected an approximately 4 liter sediment sample from each of the major stratigraphic zones exposed in the profiles in the West Shelter for malacological analysis. David Baerreis (University of Wisconsin, Madison) and James Theler (University of Wisconsin, Madison) and identified an analyzed the gastropods recorded in this database.
Vertebrate faunal remains excavated at the Riverton Site, Illinois (11CW170) under the direction of Joseph R. Caldwell during July and August 1963. Remains were hand troweled and some features were screened with unspecified mesh size (it is presumed that 1/4" mesh was used). Dr. Paul Parmalee analyzed the faunal remains. Dr. Parmalee only recorded attributes for the following variables: taxon, element, completeness (whole vs fragmentary), the number of identified specimens, and miscellaneous comments.
Ancient Native American use of caves in the Eastern Woodlands occurred throughout the entire span of regional prehistory; however, the ways that these natural features were used varied considerably over time. To date only 25 cave sites containing deposits dated to the Archaic period (ca. 10,000–3000 B.P.) are recorded in the state of Tennessee, representing just 0.4% of the total known Archaic sites. In 2014 the authors conducted a salvage operation, bucket auger survey, and...
Faunal remains collected from Test Units 1 through 5 and 8 by screening through 1/4 inch mesh at Little Freeman Cave (23PU565) in Missouri.
Faunal remains were excavated from the West Pillar (Unit F) at Modoc Rock Shelter (11R5) and processed with 1/4" waterscreening. Remains include vertebrates, gastropods, and freshwater mussels. Remains were identified by Mona Colburn using the Osteological Collections of the Illinois State Museum; and checked by Dr. Bonnie Styles.
Napoleon Hollow (11PK500) is located at the base of the bluff and in the floodplain adjacent to the lower Illinois River in Pike County, Illinois. The site was excavated in 1979 and 1980 by the Center for American Archeology (Dr. Michael Wiant, Site Director) for the Central Illinois Expressway with funding from the Illinois Department of Transportation. Archaic deposits were encountered in alluvial deposits in the Illinois River and Napoleon Creek floodplains and in colluvial...
