Experimental investigation of wind effects on long-span slender bridges with stochastic traffic flow.

Overview

The archaeological context of the High Basins, southern Pah Rah Range, Washoe County, NV, is analyzed---primarily the rock art data (petroglyphs). Petroglyphs have an advantage of being a durable residue of cultural activity not lost through excavation or collecting activities.

Overview

The archaeological context of the High Basins, southern Pah Rah Range, Washoe County, NV, is analyzed---primarily the rock art data (petroglyphs). Petroglyphs have an advantage of being a durable residue of cultural activity not lost through excavation or collecting activities. The disadvantage is that no absolute dating methods have yet gone past the trial stages. One relative technique that can be used to assign a cultural timeframe to sites with petroglyphs is motif analysis. Munsell color system repatination data and actual imagery were looked into to deduce likely activities surrounding and timeframes of use of the area's resources. Likely exploitation of these resources was by seasonal task groups beginning in early Spring focusing on plant resources. This is not denied by prior investigations; nonetheless, the rock art has been associated with hunting magic and said to have preceded the period when evidence of seed processing becomes abundant (Delacorte 1997), in late components after 600 B.P. This conclusion distances the domestic context in direct association with the rock art---a context also found in other western and northern Great Basin areas (Ricks 1995; Woody 2000)---temporally and by marginalization. House rings and grinding equipment presided in the area, along with a generalized lithic tool kit, thus task group composition suggests the prehistoric presence of women and children through all components, not just the late component. The petroglyphs are archaeological features strongly associated with the house rings and some concentrated milling areas. The seasonal upland field camps comprised part of the marsh and upland exploitation prevalent in the Great Basin (Janetski and Madsen 1990).
