  • Zooarchaeology of Mission Santa Clara de Asìs: Bone Fragmentation, Stew
           Production, and Commensality

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Through the analysis of faunal remains from refuse features associated with the Native Californian living quarters at Mission Santa Clara de Asìs, the article examines Indigenous diet within this colonial mission settlement. In Alta California, Native Californians from differing sociolinguistic groups were relocated to Spanish missions, creating an ever shifting pluralistic society. Within these mission settlements, Native Californians were tasked with maintaining the vast agricultural fields for which they received ingredients for two Spanish-style meals, atole and pozole. This study examines the diet of Native Californian families living within Mission Santa Clara, specifically focusing on the breakage patterns of cattle bones and the communal preparation, cooking, and consumption of these daily meals. These results illustrate change and continuity of foodway practices, expanding our understanding of mission political economies and Native Californian persistence within this colonial system.

  • Agricultural Extension Programs and Small Finds from Home Sites of Rural
           Black Leaders

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Although historic stereotypes depict the South Carolina Sandhills as a backwoods of poor, White families, demographic and archaeological data evidence a diverse community. Small finds from three home sites connected to the Dunlap family challenge poverty and race-based assumptions. The Dunlap family stood out in the Sandhills as Black landowners and leaders in twentieth-century agricultural extension programs. These programs emphasized material consumption as an indication of household progress and stability. Analyzing small finds from the Dunlaps’ homes within the context of the agricultural extension service reveals the impact of segregated federal programs on identity mediation.

  • Archaeology and Quality of Life in Central-European, Pre-Industrial Towns
           (Fourteenth to Eighteenth Centuries)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Diversification of standards of living in modern societies is one of the main research topics for economists and sociologists. Usually, economic inequalities are considered to be a natural phenomenon which trigger further progress and, in moderate amounts, are socially acceptable. However, deep inequalities are unjust and destructive and lead to conflicts. The research of contemporary inequalities in living standards mainly focuses on defining their source and their social and economic implications. The issue of social inequalities in pre-industrial societies is researched in a similar way, but requires different methods and data sources. The purpose of this paper is to determine the usefulness of archaeology in the research of diversification of living standards in Central-European cities at the end of Middle Ages and in the Early Modern era. As a case study we discuss the consumption strategies of Late Medieval and Early Modern dress accessories from different burgher plots in Prague (modern Czech Republic) and Wrocław (modern Poland) as an introduction for broader research.

  • Spectacles of Settler Colonial Memory: Archaeological Findings from an
           Early Twentieth-Century “First” Settlement Pageant and Other
           Commemorative Terrain in New England

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In 1923, rural New England mill town Dover, New Hampshire, staged a Tercentenary pageant of extraordinary proportions to celebrate its “first” settlement. This public spectacle memorialized a specific, and deeply exclusionary, narrative of English settler colonialism, shaped by social anxieties of the post-First World War United States. Recent archaeological research has found possible remnants from this spectacle on a seventeenth-century site. In disturbing this site, the Tercentenary pageant appears to have disregarded actual significant material traces from the very era it aimed to memorialize--traces that offer distinct, fuller understandings of deeply nuanced Native-settler interactions in the Piscataqua River region. Dover’s pageant is situated in a regional analysis of Native and Euro-colonial commemorative place-making of the early twentieth century, exploring how different communities pursued multivocal, monovocal, or other approaches in their performative engagements with the seventeenth century.

  • Recovering a Black Cemetery: Automated Mapping of Hidden Gravesites Using
           an sUAV and GIS in East End Cemetery, Richmond, VA

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Estimates suggest that over 15,000 people are buried at East End Cemetery, a historic African American cemetery in Richmond, Virginia, that until recently received no public funding for upkeep. Here, we present a case study analysis and potentially replicable methodology for counting and locating unmarked burial depressions in non-forested areas using a low-cost sUAV (drone) and simple, hydrology-based geographic information systems analyses. Upon visual inspection of 12% of our final 8,000 burial site dataset, we find our dataset is a plausible representation (75% accuracy) of potential grave locations. We hope that the methods presented below can be implemented to assist in reclaiming historically underfunded Black cemeteries across the American South.

  • Incomplete Histories and Hidden Lives: The Case for Social Network
           Analysis in Historical Archaeology

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: From the kind of data used, to the creativity of approaches aimed at exploring social networks in the past, applications of social network analysis (SNA) in archaeology are characterized by exceptional diversity. In recent years, applications of SNA by historians and history-adjacent scholars have also increased dramatically, partly as a product of the growing field of digital humanities. In the North American sense of the term, the utility of social network analysis has yet to be substantively realized by historical archaeologists. In this paper, we use two case studies from the southeastern United States to illustrate the potential that social network analyses could offer historical archaeologists. In particular, we highlight how social network analysis can be employed as a framework for the integrated consideration of both archaeological and documentary evidence to explore the distribution, accumulation, control, and production of social capital in the past. In our first case study we leverage archaeological networks as a proxy for social capital to explore the contradictions and complementarity of archaeological data and the ethnohistorical record on the Indigenous politics of sixteenth-century Southern Appalachia. In our second example we examine networks of tasks and spaces across a nineteenth-century enslaved community on the Georgia Coast to understand how social capital can be differentially accumulated and accessed within particular spaces and practices. Through these examples, we demonstrate the potential for social network analysis to enrich the research programs and support the goals of North American historical archaeologists and to link such research into broader themes across the social and humanistic sciences.

  • Macropod Bone Apatite Isotopic Analysis as Evidence for Recent
           Environmental Change at Bandicoot Bay Pearling Camp, Barrow Island,
           Australia

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Stable isotope analysis of bone apatite oxygen (δ18O) and carbon (δ13C) was undertaken for modern and archaeological spectacled hare wallaby (Lagorchestes conspicillatus) bone collected from an 1880s indentured labor confinement camp on Barrow Island in Western Australia. δ18O results and historical climate data indicate decreased annual precipitation during occupation of the site and provide insight into the conditions experienced by Aboriginal pearling laborers incarcerated on the offshore island. δ13C values may reflect variation in water availability or a short-term vegetation change resulting from landscape burning. This study is the first application of macropod bone apatite isotopic analysis in an Australian historical context and demonstrates its significant potential for identifying recent environmental changes to a high level of sensitivity.

  • The Social Logic of the Temple Space: A Preliminary Spatial Analysis of
           Historical Buddhist Temples in Chiang Saen, Northern Thailand

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: This article applies space syntax analysis as an experimental tool to assess the spatial organization and social landscape among the Chiang Saen community in Northern Thailand. This article aims to highlight concepts and interpretations of social spaces that have both ritual and domestic components, providing insights into similarities and differences in the use of space. Space syntax research elsewhere has shed light on issues of social behavior through spatial accessibility. Application of the method to the spatial arrangements in sites in Northern Thailand that span the Buddhist reform period of the fourteenth century CE enhances our understanding of similar issues. The space syntax analysis demonstrates common systems found among six archaeological sites: the first is an asymmetrical and hierarchical pattern, which reflects elements of a strongly conventional temple pattern characteristic of the post-reform period, and the second identified the symmetrical and “openness” qualities of social spaces, a less regimented spatial pattern more aligned with local religious practices. The results demonstrate that the spatial arrangement in most temples is a combination of both spatial and social systems which also indicates negotiation and change between the two, suggesting diverse social activities and religious ideas were practiced and performed at the temples.

  • Threads of Evidence: Polarized Light Microscopy for Funerary Textile
           Identification from an Eighteenth and Nineteenth Century Philadelphia
           Burial Ground

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The First Baptist Church of Philadelphia (FBCP) burial ground was excavated in 2017 after being discovered during construction in historic Philadelphia (Leader et al., in press). Burial records indicate its use from ca. 1702–1859. Skeletal remains of approximately 491 individuals, along with associated funerary goods, including coffins and coffin furniture were recovered from the archaeological excavations. Across historical burial grounds, textiles are often infrequent due to a lack of preservation, or are understudied due to the inability to identify the fabrics. These disadvantages highlight the need for the increased sharing of methods for textile identification, and discussion of historical funerary textiles. Like many burial ground sites, a large number of shroud pins was recovered at FBCP yet only a small sample of textile material (n = 12) was preserved. Here we use polarized light microscopy (PLM) to identify textile fibers and weaves, and discuss these using other comparable funerary textile examples.

  • Seafaring along the Bulgarian Black Sea Coast in the Ottoman Period, Based
           on the Finds from the Late Eighteenth- Early Nineteenth-Century Kitten
           Shipwreck

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Recent work undertaken by the Black Sea Maritime Archaeology Project in the territorial waters of Bulgaria, uncovered 37 Ottoman-Period shipwrecks, demonstrating the high density of seafaring activities in the Black Sea. Though the finds are important in understanding Ottoman seafaring technology, they provide little information about life on board. The Kitten shipwreck remains the sole fully excavated nautical site of this period in the Black Sea. This article discusses artifacts found on board this late eighteenth- early nineteenth-century shipwreck, excavated on the southern Bulgarian coast. The finds offer insights into shipboard life, the religious background of the crew, and support historical references to the family nature of seafaring ventures.

  • Sugar Pills' Investigating Humphreys’ Homeopathic Specifics:
           Utilizing Liquid Chromatography-Tandem Mass Spectrometry for an In-Depth
           Look at Nineteenth-Century American Homeopathy

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Frederick K. Humphreys (1816-1900), founder of Humphreys Medicine Company, appeared at the rise of both greater acceptance and popularity of the homeopathy in the United States, as opposed to more orthodox medicine. Although bolstered by the relatively high cost and low success rate of traditional medicines, homeopathic remedies soon became a source of controversy due to the largely unknown ingredient lists and contradictory claims of effectiveness. Tandem mass spectrometry analysis (MS/MS) was used to pinpoint the ingredients of four “specifics” in Humphreys’ Homeopathic Remedies. Generated spectra showed similar base peak ions for each pill, leading to the hypothesis that each remedy contained the same basic ingredients. Further MS/MS analyses identified these base peak ions as adducts of sucrose (m/z 365, 381), its related ions (m/z 433, 203, 185), and apigenin (m/z 271). When placed into a historical context, the application of chemical analyses to study these early remedies can provide insight into the question of validity that evoked arguments during the late nineteenth century.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The Bay of Pasaia is one of the highest heritage value portside cultural landscapes in the Basque Country, Spain. In order to understand the factors that have led to the current complex configuration, this study traces the historical development of this landscape. It analyzes economic and social dynamics that led to transformations of the historic areas, port, and natural environment, and documents the remaining historical traces and heritage elements that have resulted from this interaction in a GIS database. Following the recommendations of the HUL Approach and the Valletta Principles, three historical periods have been identified, which bear similarity with other port areas around the world. The results of this study are expected to serve as a basis for future urban regeneration plans and heritage enhancement strategies.

  • Revisiting Criollas: Recent Findings from Casa Blanca Archaeological
           Contexts, San Juan, Puerto Rico

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: During the Casa Blanca archaeological project, a large collection of significant artifacts was recovered. The assemblage included an important component of criolla ceramics. Archaeological evidence demonstrated that manufacture and use of this unique ceramic type extended throughout most historical phases of Casa Blanca from its construction in 1521 to the late nineteenth century. Evidence also seems to indicate that most of these ceramics were used specifically for food preparation and cooking, showing traces of fire on both internal and external walls. These handmade ceramics are characterized by coiling techniques with medium to very coarse grit tempers. Having recovered this ceramic type from a building continuously occupied for 490 years has provided the unique opportunity to report these findings and broaden the perspectives of similar types for other areas of Puerto Rico as well as the rest of the Caribbean.

  • Mapping Poverty in Gotham: Visualizing New York City’s Almshouse
           Ledgers from 1822 to 1835

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: This paper maps and spatializes the Almshouse Ledger records for the children of unmarried parents in New York City in the 1820 and 1830s. Mapping the distribution of poverty and the provision of forms of welfare in the city, this paper illustrates specific areas of the city which were attracting the very poor as early as the second decade of the nineteenth century. This paper argues that migrants from countries with similar welfare systems to those established in New York may be overrepresented in the record due to familiarity with the system. This interdisciplinary paper combines archaeological approaches to GIS with archival research to illustrate the distribution of welfare provision.

      Abstract: The fill of two late and post-medieval cesspits in Brussels was analyzed using a multidisciplinary approach, including the study of macrobotanical and faunal remains, pollen, and parasite eggs. These show that in the diet plant foods were dominated by cereals while the animal remains document the consumption of mainly fish and birds. The presence of foods that were luxuries at that time would indicate that these were affluent households, although with an admixture of meals related to those of lower socioeconomic status. Seven species of helminth and protozoal parasites were identified, with dominance of those species spread by poor sanitation.

  • Inscriptions and Images in Secular Buildings: Examples from Renaissance
           Scania, Sweden, ca. 1450–1658

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: This paper examines how agents inscribed their persona in buildings during the Renaissance in Scania in present-day Sweden. Through an analysis of stone tablets and timber beams with inscriptions, images, and dates, questions of identity and individuality are highlighted. The objects were often placed above doors in noble country residences or in buildings belonging to the urban elite. The paper discusses who was able to see and understand the messages communicated by the buildings, and when, how, and why the tradition of putting up this type of object on buildings emerged in a Scandinavian context.

  • Costly Signaling and Windmill-Building: Inter-Island Technological
           Variability on Eighteenth-Century Sugar Estates in the Lesser Antilles

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Caribbean sugar mills were powered by water, animals, wind, or steam, yet the evidence indicates major differences between islands in terms of which mill type predominated. We suggest that windmills offered few, if any, advantages over animal mills and several serious disadvantages. Why, then, were so many windmills built during the eighteenth century on some of the islands of the eastern Caribbean and so few on others' Here, we draw on Costly Signaling Theory to help explain these patterns. The preference for windmill-building may have had less to do with functional requirements or economic efficiency than with cultural competition, the signaling of membership of the planter class, and the display of power throughout the plantation landscape.

  • Ceramic Production and Social Change in the South east of the Iberian
           Peninsula between the Islamic and Christian Periods: The Case of Granada

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The major social and political shifts undergone by the south eastern Iberian Peninsula, and specifically Granada, Spain, between the fourteenth and seventeenth centuries brought about clear changes in the ceramic repertoire. This work analyzes these changes through the comparative analysis of three archaeological sites: the Castle of Moclín, the Palace of the Abencerrajes, and the Fortress of Lanjarón. These sites present a clear transitional sequence spanning Nasrid repertoires and Early Modern Castilian productions, including instances of both continuity and rupture. The article advances a new statistical methodology to analyze the degree of standardization of these productions, the coefficient of variation.

  • Modern Colonialism and Cultural Continuity Through Material Culture: An
           Example from Guam and CHamoru Plaiting

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: This article analyzes cultural persistence in Guam through plaiting, material culture, and maintenance activities, a set of daily practices that are essential to social continuity and well-being. The colonization of Guam began in 1668 with the Jesuit missions. Jesuit policies utilized maintenance activities to colonize Indigenous lifeways and subjectivities, but we believe those activities also functioned as reservoirs of traditional knowledge. Although plaiting has been situated in different historical contexts across the centuries, it no doubt expresses material continuities stretching from a precolonial past. The article also challenges today’s widespread belief that the search for change is a universal value. It argues that societies appreciate continuity over change in inverse proportion to technological control over nature, asymmetrical relationships of power, and specialized fragmentation of functional tasks. In the absence of such features, the best guarantee of survival lies in maintaining the balance achieved by traditional lifeways.
