Adam C. J. Menzies

This dataset complements the dissertation Craft Specialization and the Emergence of the Chiefly Central Place Community of HE-4 (El Hatillo), Central Panama by Adam C. J. Menzies (which can be freely downloaded from the University of Pittsburgh's Electronic Theses and Dissertations Database). It provides detailed data on archaeological remains collected through intensive surface collections, shovel test probes, and stratigraphic excavations at the site of El Hatillo, Panama. The data are discussed in full in the dissertation, whose contents are as follows:

Spatial Information

Spatial information is provided as AutoCAD (Release 12) .DXF files which can be read by many CAD and GIS programs. The coordinate system for all spatial data is UTM Zone 17 N (units are Kilometers).

Location of Surface Collection Lots and Stratigraphic Units

Numeric Data

Numeric data are provided in two file formats. Comma-delimited text files should be easy to import into spreadsheet, database, and statistical programs for manipulation and analysis. Excel spreadsheets are easier to browse, and can also be imported into many programs. The numeric data files are as follows:

Ceramic inventory from surface collections and shovel test probes. Ceramic inventory from stratigraphic excavations.
Lithic inventory from surface collections and shovel test probes. Lithic inventory from stratigraphic excavations.
Faunal inventory from surface collections and shovel test probes. Faunal inventory from stratigraphic excavations.
