  2. Site 23JA275: Preliminary Report of Investigations, June 15 - July 9Fri, 30 Oct 2015 12:30:10 PDT
    During the summer of 2015 the Johnson County Community College Midwest Archaeological Field School conducted investigations at 23JA275. 23JA275 is located in southwestern Jackson County, Missouri along the bank of Longview Lake, which is part of the Little Blue River. Based on the presence of diagnostic lanceolate points, the site is associated with the Nebo Hill phase and dates to the Late Archaic. This report summarizes the scope of fieldwork and presents the preliminary findings of our efforts. Our results confirm that 23JA275 is a relatively large (15000 m2) seasonally occupied Late Archaic residential camp. Although significant bioturbation has occurred, this area does hold potential for more extensive areal excavation in the future. More...
  3. Smiths Fork Archaeological Site (23CL223), Smiths Fork Campground, Clay County, MOFri, 30 Oct 2015 12:30:09 PDT
    Previous survey and excavation identified 23CL223 (the Smith's Fork archaeological site) as a possible Steed-Kisker phase household with intact sub-plow zone deosits and multiple loci of cultural activity, including a pit feature and a hearth. Our work was designed to explore the potential this site held for shedding light on Steed-Kisker lifeways by expanding excavations beyond the previously noted pit feature. To this end, we systematically excavated six 1m x 1m units, which revealed extensive disturbance from modern farming activities that may have damaged or destroyed in situ evidence of a Steed-Kisker house. A total of 55 artifacts, consisting of modern objects, charcoal, pottery, fire cracked rock, and stone tools were recovered. A soil discoloration that may represent the remains of a posthole was noted as well. More...

  5. A Gardening Lesson From the Natural World: How Forest Ecosystems Can Provide For UsTue, 22 Sep 2015 10:26:05 PDT
    Though agriculture of the past lead to the rise of civilization, degenerative agricultural practices today may very well lead to the demise of civilization. Fortunately, nature offers a solution. By studying and manipulating the inner workings of ecological systems for the gardeners benefit, resilient gardens, specifically forest gardens, can be created. This paper explores processes that occur in the natural world such as the hydrologic and nitrogen cycles, biotic interactions, and succession and how to mimic them. Concluding with a real-world example, this paper demonstrates that gardens can thrive with minimal input while still providing an abundant variety of food, fuel, and other important resources.

  7. A Survey of Copyright LawThu, 27 Aug 2015 11:38:15 PDT
    This paper examines the persistence of state copyright laws, and the extent to which they still exist in light of federal copyright law to further understand how those state laws will be affected by possible preemption. Specifically, the scheme and penalty of unauthorized duplication and bootlegging statutes are examined from all fifty states. We further address areas where the Copyright Act would preempt these state laws. More...
