1. Baxevanis, Susan E. Collection management and analysis of the Lake Theo Folsom bone assemblage.

Degree: 1997, Texas Tech University

The Lake Theo Collection is an important representation of a Paleoindian multi-component site on the Southern Plains. Its current state of degradation is not reversible; however, future deterioration has been slowed by the implementation of standard preservation and collection management techniques. The Collection Management Plan involves the inventory, cleaning, and stabihzation of the Collection, followed by adequate packaging, and storage by today's standards. StabiUzing and cataloging the Lake Theo Collection allows a re-investigation into this site without the need of additional excavations. The re-investigation potential of the site is demonstrated through a prehminary analysis of the bone material for species identification, morphological element, and evidence of taphonomic processes. The re-investigation of the Collection and the now useable Collection itself also lay the foundation for future research questions and excavation approach if the site were to be reopened. In the past, post-excavation care generally was not included in the archaeologist's budget or plan, and was a museum's responsibility alone. Many archaeological collections received by museums as unprocessed collections remained in that condition because museums could not afford the burden of the care that these collections pose (Bleed and Nickel, 1989). Even fewer could afford post-excavation research on the collections. The responsibihty the generator of a collection has to its in-perpetuity care has increased greatly, and recently-generated collections tend to be in much better condition upon arrival at a museum. However, older, unprocessed collections should not be ignored and allowed to deteriorate further and must be addressed in a museum's long-term goals. These collections contain information vital to the interpretation of archaeological sites that must be utilized before further destruction of a site is undertaken. The information the unprocessed collections contain can be useful in the planning and implementation of further excavations at the site from which the collection came.

2. Graves, Adam Charles. Investigating Resource Structure and Human Mobility: An Example from Folsom-Aged Bison Kill Sites on the U.S. Southern Great Plains.

Degree: PhD, 2010, University of Oklahoma

Modern and prehistoric bison teeth from the Southern Plains are analyzed to assess the interrelatedness of Bison antiquus - an extinct form of the North American buffalo - and human movements between 10,800 and 10,200 years ago. This study uses Laser Ablation Inductively Coupled Plasma/Mass Spectrometry (LA-ICP/MS) to examine the down-tooth distribution of trace elements in enamel of modern Bison bison from Colorado, Kansas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Texas to define the geographical limits and concentrations of specific minerals. In addition, Bison antiquus teeth from Early Paleoindian locales on the Southern Plains are analyzed. The modern bison enamel provides an elemental map upon which the movements of extinct herds are assessed. Bison antiquus herd movement and structure can be linked to human adaptive strategies on the Southern Plains. Human hunting tactics shifted from a moderately specialized approach to highly specialized bison hunting around 11,000 B.P. The presence of predictable migratory and residential bison herds in the Southern Plains was likely a catalyst for specialized bison hunting. Advisors/Committee Members: Bement, Leland C (advisor).
