Europe - Romania - Archaeology of the Roman Frontier: A Solider's Life - Transylvania 2016

Deadline
2016-04-08

Tensions between Dacia and Rome always ran high. This came to a head in the beginning of the 2nd Century AD, when Trajan led two campaigns across the Danube to attack Dacia. The war was hard fought, and the Roman suffered heavy losses, but in the end, Trajan claimed Dacia for the Roman Empire, and returned to Rome to celebrate his victory. But what of the people of Dacia? Now that they were in the Roman Empire, how did their lives change? How did they interact with the Roman Army that was left behind? For a long time, these questions were ignored, but current archaeological work is looking to answer just these questions. The Cumidava Archaeological Research Project (CARP) is seeking to better understand what is occurring in Dacia after the Roman conquest. It focuses on small scale interactions between Roman soldiers and Dacian civilians, in and around the Cumidava Castrum, home of the VI Cohorts Cumidavensis, on the Transylvanian Limes. CARP seeks to understand what it actually meant to the average person to now be subjected to colonial Roman rule in a newly formed province of the Empire. Our project addresses questions of creolization and dynamic interaction at different scales, exploring the mechanisms of integration of several distinct groups forced to coexist in overlapping environments.

Deadline
2016-06-24
Cooper's Ferry Archaeology Field School, led by Dr. Loren Davis, will be returning to resume excavations at the Cooper's Ferry site in the summer of 2015. The Cooper's Ferry site is located in the beautiful lower Salmon River canyon of western Idaho and contains some of the earliest evidence of humans in the Pacific Northwest. Previous excavations show that the Cooper's Ferry site contains a long record of repeated human occupation, beginning with a Western Stemmed Tradition assemblage associated with radiocarbon dates of 11,370 and 11,410 14C years BP. These dates are controversial and, if true, support arguments that peoples bearing the Clovis tradition were not the first to settle the Far West. Our upcoming work at the site will build upon the exciting information collected already and will seek to address many archaeological questions related to the evolution of technology, economic patterns, and environmental conditions during the late Pleistocene to early Holocene period (ca. 13,000-13,000 cal BP). Ultimately, the OSU excavations at Cooper's Ferry will hopefully contribute critical data to answer many questions about the first peoples of the Pacific Northwest and, by extension, the Americas. Join us this coming summer to learn professional archaeological excavation, recordation, and field curation skills as we seek clues about the first peoples of Far Western North America. Students will also get an introduction to landscape and site-level approaches to geoarchaeological study--perspectives that are important in the search for and study of the First Americans.

North America - Utah - The Nancy Patterson Archaeological Site, Blanding, Utah - 2014

Deadline

The Nancy Patterson Archaeological Project was the vision of Mark Evans and his strong commitment to preserve while conducting cutting edge research and education about the privately owned Nancy Patterson Site. His goal was to see the site used to bridge the gap between the public and scientific community by providing a common educating experience and appreciation for our prehistoric American History. Over the years it has continued with the support of private indiduals. The 24 acre site circles the Nancy Patterson Butte that juts up from the Montezuma Canyon bottom. As discussed at previous Pecos Conferences there is a continuous occupational sequence spanning Basketmaker III through Pueblo III periods. The major features are the Nancy Patterson Village located at the southern base of the butte and large circular plaza on the butte top. Spirit Bird Cave which lies to the north just up canyon is closely associated with this site. Studies over the past 30 years have confirmed the site to be a center of major Anasazi importance and it is listed on the National Registor of Historic Places. This year the site will be set up for tours during the Pecos Conference.
