Following his father across the meadow, Bill wondered what he was going to show him. As they walked slowly along the banks of the gurgling stream, his father knelt and brushed at the ground with his hand. Come look at this, Bill. Stepping next to where his father was, Bill looked at the ground. He saw a handful of black, glossy flakes of rocks. Isn t it flint? Bill asked with awe in his voice. Its proper name is obsidian, his father answered. When an Indian wanted to make an arrow point, he would use an antler point in one hand and a piece of buckskin in the other to protect his hand. Then he would flake off the obsidian and make whatever he wanted. Kneeling next to his father, Bill picked up several obsidian chips. How do you know all of this? he asked.Obsidian, a captivating tale of parallel lives, is the story of heartache and love, war and peace, richly woven between the past and the present. Although separated by more than 100 years, an Indian boy and a white man embark on an unforgettable journey through time...
Obsidian was long valued by ancient peoples as a raw material for producing stone tools, and archaeologists have increasingly come to view obsidian studies as a crucial aid in understanding the past. Steven Shackley now shows how the geochemical and contextual analyses of archaeological obsidian can be applied to the interpretation of social and economic organization in the ancient Southwest. This book, the capstone of decades of investigation, integrates a wealth of obsidian research in one volume. It covers advances in analytical chemistry and field petrology that have enhanced our understanding of obsidian source heterogeneity, presents the most recent data on and interpretations of archaeological obsidian sources in the Southwest, and explores the ethnohistorical and contemporary background for obsidian use in indigenous societies. Shackley provides a thorough examination of the geological origin of obsidian in the region and the methods used to collect raw material and determine its chemical composition, and descriptions of obsidian sources throughout the Southwest. He then describes the occurrence of obsidian artifacts and shows how their geochemical fingerprints allow archaeologists to make conclusions regarding the procurement of obsidian. The book presents three groundbreaking applications of obsidian source studies. It first discusses an application to early Preceramic groups, showing how obsidian sources can reflect the range they inhabited over time as well as their social relationships during the Archaic period. It then offers an examination of the Late Classic Salado in Arizona's Tonto Basin, where obsidian data, along with ceramic and architectural evidence, suggest that Mogollon migrants lived in economic and social harmony with the Hohokam, all the while maintaining relationships with their homeland. Finally, it provides an intensive look at social identity and gender differences in the Preclassic Hohokam of central Arizona, where obsidian source provenance and projectile point styles suggest that male Hohokam sought to create a stylistically defined identity in at least three areas of the Hohokam core area. These male "sodalities" were organized quite differently from female ceramic production groups. Today, obsidian research in the American Southwest enjoys an equal standing with ceramic, faunal, and floral studies as a method of revealing social process and change in prehistory. Shackley's book discusses the ways in which archaeologists should approach obsidian research, no matter what the region, offering a thorough survey of archaeological obsidian studies that will have methodological and theoretical applications worldwide. The volume includes an extensive glossary created specifically for archaeologists.
Daud Haider's poetry reveals that 'human condition, both body and soul, is destitute, haunted by loneliness, abused by despots and consumed by the ever-present fires of war.' He unforgettably describes the vivisection of living communities, massacre, famine, drought, flood, volcanoes and holocausts. His work is encircled with masterful use of Bengali metres, rhythms from traditional and modern nursery rhymes, and the effective combination of poetic diction and colloquial speech. According to Gunter Grass 'his poems are marked by direct experiences, sustained perplexity and exile.'
Book One of the bestselling Lux series Starting over sucks. When we moved to West Virginia right before my senior year, I'd pretty much resigned myself to thick accents, dodgy internet access, and a whole lot of boring...until I spotted my hot neighbor, with his looming height and eerie green eyes. Things were looking up. And then he opened his mouth. Daemon is infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. We do not get along. At all. But when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, well, something...unexpected happens. The hot alien living next door marks me. You heard me. Alien. Turns out Daemon and his sister have a galaxy of enemies wanting to steal their abilities, and Daemon's touch has me lit up like the Vegas Strip. The only way I'm getting out of this alive is by sticking close to Daemon until my alien mojo fades. If I don't kill him first, that is.
