Investigators should inform the Louisiana Division of Archaeology about their schedule of fieldwork for Phase II projects in order to provide the opportunity for Division personnel to visit the site s. At the completion of a Phase II project, each site tested must be assessed as eligible or not eligible with the supporting documentation provided in the report. A site update form must be submitted to the Louisiana Division of Archaeology that describes the results of Phase II investigations at each site tested on the project. Field Methodology for Phase II Archaeological Testing Given the diversity of sites examined in Phase II investigations, considerable professional judgment in the strategy developed to address the above goals is expected.
Duggan My research interests are in Paleoindian archaeology, Pleistocene landscapes, lithic technology, and the formation of early cultural systems in prehistoric Florida. Ryan Steeves My research interests include historic and industrial archaeology.
My current research focuses on zooarchaeology, specifically analyzing the remains from the West Kendall Site in Miami, an Everglades tree island.
I am interested in human interaction with the environment, both past and present.
Arlene Fradkin My major area of expertise is zooarchaeology, the study of animal bone and shell remains recovered from archaeological sites.
As a branch of environmental archaeology, this discipline is directed toward understanding the dynamic relationship between past human populations and the natural and social environment in which they lived.
Clifford Brown Most of my research and experience in archaeology focuses geographically on the culture area called Mesoamerica, which encompasses central and eastern Mexico, Belize, Guatemala, El Salvador, and western Honduras. Recently, I began survey and excavations in northwest Nicaragua.
My research interests include the origins of civilization, particularly the emergence of inequality and social complexity; ceramic analysis; lithic analysis; and the application of quantitative methods in archaeology, especially fractal analysis.
My current focus involves further exploring various methodologies for assessing chimpanzee endocrine responses. Alexandra Thomas My research interests involve human evolution and migration. I am research dentition and diet to see if these markers explain the morphology of the cranium.
My particular areas of research interest are Europe and Asia. Alyson Fishbein My research interest is the evolution of the brain, specifically the roles of white matter tissues and the mechanisms responsible for brain growth and human language.
I will focus on the corpus callosum of individuals afflicted with a medical condition called microcephaly. With my background studying community forestry and indigenous land rights, I plan to research the impact of environmental degradation on the Everglades as well as the threats to Native American tribal lands in Southern Florida.
Marissa Tirro My current research examines the effect that spirituality has on the concept of sustainability and its intentional application by a Florida ecovillage in implementing a permacultural model of sustainable living. Max Kirsch Most of my work as an anthropologist has been economic and political anthropology, globalism, the anthropology of work and the anthropology of gender, as well as human rights and issues of peace and justice.
In doing this, my focus contains questions of the meaning and generation of theory and their consequences on the analysis of local populations in global settings, as well as the analysis of the individual in society. Michael Harris My work in anthropology is motivated by my interest in making anthropology relevant to contemporary social problems.
In general, I am most interested in how anthropology can be used to address such disparate issues as health and disease patterns, inequality, and environmental degradation. From this basic focus on land use, my research extends out to economic and political processes as well as issues of health and illness especially childhood disease and mortality.In doing this, my focus contains questions of the meaning and generation of theory and their consequences on the analysis of local populations in global settings, as well as the analysis of the individual in society.
Archaeology, or archeology, is the study of human activity through the recovery and analysis of material culture. The archaeological record consists of artifacts, architecture, .
The first type of analysis is domain analysis, which is “a search for the larger units of cultural knowledge” (p. 94). The other kinds of analysis are taxonomic analysis, componential analysis, and theme analysis.
Learning Goals. The Department of analysis, critical thinking and communication that prepare students for effective participation in a variety of careers and endeavors; history, art, archaeology, and philosophy of Classical antiquity primarily through English translations.
degree in evolutionary anthropology is designed for students interested in archaeology, biological anthropology, paleoanthropology, geoarchaeology, or other related fields in human evolutionary studies (e.g., skeletal biology, forensic science, primatology).
The analysis of ceramics then is a very important part of archaeological fieldwork. Analysis of ceramics at Isthmia begins with an initial sorting into broadly periodic (e.g., Roman), functional (e.g., fine ware), typological (e.g., pottery), morphological (e.g., rim sherd) classes for each lot.
