Tránsito y paisaje en la puna de Jujuy durante los desarrollos regionales: una aproximación iconográfica
Montenegro,Mónica; Ruiz,Marta;
Cuadernos de la Facultad de Humanidades y Ciencias Sociales. Universidad Nacional de Jujuy , 2007,
Abstract: this work sets out to accede to the knowledge of the landscape of the puna de jujuy's northern sector during the desarrollos regionales' period, through the iconographyc's analysis of the objects of the hallucinogenic complex. understanding the archaeological register, like the socio-cultural product of past towns, framed in a landscape that contains and means it, the study of the material culture was made from the proposals of the archaeology of the landscape. we worked on the transit concept, examining the relation which the archaeological objects keep with the movement, that somehow it reflects an interrelation with its immediate surroundings. it was come to the analysis of the materials, from the iconography's method and from a semiotic's perspective; later, the materials were related to their regional surroundings: sites of the quebrada de humahuaca and the north of chile. an interesting iconographyc's correlation was observed, that put in evidence the capacity which certain images had to journey puna and to move between both slopes of the andes; this allowed to bring data to the discussion on the movement of material goods and ideas, during the desarrollos regionales' period.
Diachronic and Spatial Distribution of Khabur Ware in the Early Second Millennium BC
Alessio Palmisano
Journal of Open Archaeology Data , 2012, DOI: 10.5334/4f8d6ed49bd54
Abstract: The dataset provides the diachronic and spatial distribution of Khabur ware in upper Mesopotamia and central Anatolia in the early second millennium BC (ca. 1900-1750 BC) by evaluating the ceramic evidence coming from excavated archaeological sites. Khabur ware is wheel-made pottery with monochrome geometric painted decoration in red, brown or black, which owes its name to the archaeologist Max Mallowan after that great quantities of it were found by him at the site of Chagar Bazar, in the Upper Khabur valley. Nevertheless, the data yielded from the archaeological excavations show that this pottery is not just confined in the Khabur basin, but spreads in northern Iraq, Syria and in a few sites in Iran and Turkey. This kind of pottery can be studied and analysed as fossil guide for detecting possible political and economic dynamics that caused its spread in Upper Mesopotamia and Central Anatolia in the Middle Bronze Age.
Ancient Maya Regional Settlement and Inter-Site Analysis: The?2013 West-Central Belize LiDAR Survey

Remote Sensing , 2014, DOI: 10.3390/rs6098671
Abstract: During April and May 2013, a total of 1057 km 2 of LiDAR was flown by NCALM for a consortium of archaeologists working in West-central Belize, making this the largest surveyed area within the Mayan lowlands. Encompassing the Belize Valley and the Vaca Plateau, West-central Belize is one of the most actively researched parts of the Maya lowlands; however, until this effort, no comprehensive survey connecting all settlement had been conducted. Archaeological projects have investigated at least 18?different sites within this region. Thus, a large body of archaeological research provides both the temporal and spatial parameters for the varied ancient Maya centers that once occupied this area; importantly, these data can be used to help interpret the collected LiDAR data. The goal of the 2013 LiDAR campaign was to gain information on the distribution of ancient Maya settlement and sites on the landscape and, particularly, to determine how the landscape was used between known centers. The data that were acquired through the 2013 LiDAR campaign have significance for interpreting both the composition and limits of ancient Maya political units. This paper presents the initial results of these new data and suggests a developmental model for ancient Maya polities.
Intensive Survey Data from Antikythera, Greece
Andrew Bevan,James Conolly
Journal of Open Archaeology Data , 2012, DOI: 10.5334/4f3bcb3f7f21d
Abstract: The Antikythera Survey Project was an interdisciplinary programme of fieldwork, artefact study and laboratory analysis that considered the long-term history and human ecology of the small Greek island of Antikythera. It was co-directed by Andrew Bevan (UCL) and James Conolly (Trent), in collaboration with Aris Tsaravopoulos (Greek Archaeological Service), and under the aegis of the Canadian Institute in Greece and the Hellenic Ministry of Culture. Its various primary datasets are unusual, both in the Mediterranean and beyond, for providing intensive survey coverage of an entire island’s surface archaeology.
Prospección arqueológica de la Cuenca del Río de las Tunas: Dptos. Tupungato-Tunuyán, Mendoza
Ots,María José;
Cuadernos de la Facultad de Humanidades y Ciencias Sociales. Universidad Nacional de Jujuy , 2005,
Abstract: we present in this paper the results of the systematic surveys carried out in the river de las tunas valley in valle de uco, in mendoza province. our objective is the study of the area from the regional archaeological perspective, integrating the sites investigations with the contributions of the distributional archaeology, off site, to identify the transformations and the continuities in the prehistoric occupation of the regional landscape. we adopt the methodology proposed by the distributional studies that it consisted on the prospecting of the microregion selected by means of transects for the pedestrian, intensive and systematic inspection of the different sectors of the landscape; and the registration -position, mensuration, systematic gatherings, samplings, mapping- of the environmental conditions and the "isolated finds" and artifact concentrations. in spite of their limitations as for the chronological precision and sites functionality, we identify settelment patterns and use of the landscape in the different stages of the regional prehistory that could indicate increase and population's mobility and technological and cultural change.

The Landscape and Archaeology of Jebel Sabaloka and the Sixth Nile Cataract, Sudan
Lenka Suková,Václav Cílek
Interdisciplinaria Archaeologica : Natural Sciences in Archaeology , 2012,
Abstract: There are only six cataracts on the Main Nile of which the sixth Nile cataract located ca. 80 km downstream of the confluence of the Blue and White Niles represents the southernmost and smallest of theseries. Despite its close vicinity to Khartoum, this area was the least studied cataract zone along the Middle Nile until 2009 when it became the object of geoarchaeological research by the Czech Institute of Egyptology (Faculty of Arts, Charles University in Prague) and the Institute of Geology (Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic). Four field campaigns have been carried out in Jebel Sabaloka and the Sixth Nile Cataract up to now, of which the first two were focused on landscape archaeology of a “large scale”, i.e. on the recognition of all observable human influencesin the research area of approx. 15×20 km. The main result of the first landscape archaeological reconnaissance consistsin the localisation and first description of ca. 30 major sites spanning from the Middle Palaeolithic up to the recent past. A peculiar archaeological feature of this part of the nile Valley has turned out to be the existence of a dense network of terraced “villages” connected via old paths with the Nile and with the periphery of the mountains. Furthermore, two Christian and Islamic forts have been found at places guarding the crossing of the Nile above the sixth cataract. Last but not least, a large number of prehistoric sites, including an extraordinarily rich settlement dated to the Mesolithic and Neolithic periods, has been described as well. After the first two seasons, the findings of which are summarised in this paper, it can be argued that the last of the six Nile cataracts to be investigated has finally begun to reveal its rich and hitherto unknown archaeological past.
Rapa Nui Landscapes of Construction
Sue Hamilton
Archaeology International , 2007, DOI: 10.5334/ai.1011
Abstract: Rapa Nui (Easter Island) is the most remote inhabited spot in the world. It is famous for its gigantic stone statues, which have been the focus of much archaeological study. The new Rapa Nui Landscapes of Construction Project, described in this article, adopts a more holistic approach, aiming to place the statues and associated monumental structures in the context of the wider landscape of settlement and cultivation. It also concentrates on the processes of construction as much as the final products, with an emphasis on quarries and other places of construction, approached through multiple methods of field exploration.

Study on landscape spatial pattern in the center of Chengdu City is based on the Landsat-8 image by using 3S technique and spatial pattern analysis software Fragstats 3.3. The results showed that there covered an area of 193.92 km2 in the center of Chengdu City. 55.24% of the total area was made up of buildings, covering an area of 107.12 km2, and the overall landscape of impervious ground-based. There were 22,666 patches; 29.67% of the patches were roads. The human interference of buildings, roads and green space was a maximum; fragmentation of the highest was green space. The fragmentation of overall urban landscape was high; the diversity was low; the value of Shannon’s diversity index was 0.63; the value of Shannon’s evenness index was 0.70. All kinds of landscape distribution were not balanced, and lack of connectivity. This research puts important reference for creating good urban landscape space and restoring the natural ecological environment in the western regions of China.
