Choirokoitia[edit]

Hiya, I've created an article Choirokoitia. It's just a beginning, translated from German and Dutch. I'm not an expert on archaeology, nor do I have any books of reference on the topic. So I hope you and other archaeology enthusiasts can make a more detailed article out of it. (Also posted a message on the discussion page of Neolithic, but didn't know whether someone checks that regularly) NielsF 22:31, 9 January 2006 (UTC)

Megalithic Burials in Korea[edit]

Dear Madam/Sir, I edit some material on Northeast Asian Archaeology. In the Korean Peninsula, there are more than 50,000 megalithic burials dating to the Mumun Pottery Period. The article that you started (?) characterizes burials of the British Isles, but megalithic burials are found in many parts of our planet. I dislike the rude and abrupt manner of some of the so-called editors of Wikipedia and wish to conduct myself in a more respectful manner toward others. Would you be upset if I added a section on megaliths outside of the British Isles? Mumun 23:56, 13 January 2006 (UTC)

Grotte du Lazaret[edit]

Hey Adamsan, regarding the Grotte article, there is not a specific thing that I felt could be cleaned up, it was more the overall tone of the article that to me didn't fit well with an encyclopedic entry. It just seemed to be a bunch of sentences pieced together instead of a paragraph. Example:

"It has also produced more than 20,000 bone fragments from the remains of prehistoric animals. Part of the skull of a nine-year old child from the cave suggests that either homo heidelbergensis or a proto-Neanderthal group occupied it almost two hundred thousand years ago."

I would reword the above to say:

"The Grotte du Lazaret cave has also produced more than 20,000 bone fragments from the remains of prehistoric animals including that of a nine-year old child that suggestting that, almost two-hundred thousand years ago, either Homo Heidelbergensis or a proto-Neanderthal group occupied the cave."

Notice how I sort of blended two sentences into one, but kept the facts. Now, obviously you don't have to go with my wording, but it was just an example to show some ways how I felt the article could be cleaned up, consolidated, and reworded. I noticed you've been the only one contributing to the article to date, and I think you did an excellent job on writing it, don't get me wrong. If you like my above rewording suggesting, I'd be more than happy to help you clean it up a bit. Phaldo 02:13, 21 January 2006 (UTC)

John Wymer[edit]

The article John Wymer contains a link to the article "Reading", which is a disambiguation page. I would disambiguate it, but I am not certain which is the correct target. Duckbill 13:46, 28 February 2006 (UTC)

List of archaeological periods[edit]

I notice you have some plans to replace this page with another, looking at that could we discess your plans here as this although more globals in scope is perhaps not of the same quality. Is there anyway I can help with this. :: Kevinalewis : (Talk Page) 09:43, 2 March 2006 (UTC)

Having made a bit of progress on these articles I was wondering if you wouldn't mind giving them the once over to check if I have made any mistakes. Or if you have anything to suggest, offer etc. :: Kevinalewis : (Talk Page) 10:06, 28 March 2006 (UTC)
Did I miss your response, don't want to be rude and ignore you if I have. Regards :: Kevinalewis : (Talk Page)/(Desk) 08:52, 10 April 2006 (UTC)

Villa & Roman Villa merge[edit]

This proposal has been around for some time and most "if not all" the response seems negative, can we not bottom out this one and remove this as a merge proposal. :: Kevinalewis : (Talk Page) 11:34, 2 March 2006 (UTC)

Roman presence before 43[edit]

You just deleted

"Archeological findings indicate that there was some kind of Roman precence in Britain prior to 43, possibly to support local rulers friendly to Rome or to protect trading posts." in Roman conquest of Britain with the comment: "presumed ref to disproved Time Team"

I included that comment originally based on a article in the 'History Today' magazine (8/2005 p 6) as indicated in the editsummary.

Could you please elaborate why you deleted that sentence? Possibly a source that disproves the above statement. (Note that it was sufficiantly vague in saying there was "some" precence as there was clearly no outright rule at the time) Agathoclea 20:20, 9 March 2006 (UTC)

May I add, that if it is clearly disproven it would be worth mentioning in the article as a known fallacy. Agathoclea 20:21, 9 March 2006 (UTC)
The article in question was written by Miles, therefore based on the timeteam research. But published after the reference you mentioned and possibly toned down because of that. Interrestingly your reference says: "I don't think anyone would deny that there was probably a continuous trade presence with Rome in one form or another from the time of Julius Caesar's invasion (and one which would probably account for every artifact which Time Team will bring up)". It might need some more research and thinking of getting the right words (I am German and see "precence" as being there, but I see it could be understood as occupation.

Long Live Adamsan[edit]

I'd just like to say, Adamsan, what a magnificient job you have done with Stonehenge and the other archaeology related articles here at Wiki.

Folsom Site and Lindenmeier Site[edit]

Folsom Site and Lindenmeier Site are two articles in List of National Historic Landmarks in Colorado and List of National Historic Landmarks in New Mexico that I am working on. It would be great if you could add to those articles. I copied your pithy paragraph from the Folsom, New Mexico article for the Folsom Site article, thanks for that already. doncram 23:28, 18 October 2007 (UTC)

Invasion theory[edit]

I see you have a history of working on the article Invasion theory. I am looking at it from the project Wikipedia:Unreferenced articles where it is one of the longest {{unreferenced}} tagged articles that does not meet at least the barest minimum of verifiability. It has been tagged and completely without references since June 2006. It would be extremely helpful if you had some references you could add to the article to help support its verifiability and notability. Thanks for any help you can give.

Culture[edit]

Hi, I am here to solicit your help. As of a week ago, the culture article was just a total trainwreck. There was a GA and it elicited many reasonable criticisms. I recently did a major revision of the article, although my approach was conservative: I deleted redundancies, deleted fringe and tangential material, and reorganized what was left in an attempt to highlight distinct approaches and points of view. I explain all this in more detail on the talk page starting here (note: the two people who did the GA think my revision is bad and the earlier version should be restored). I admit that my revision has big holes, and i am hoping other editors can help fill them in.

A major hole involves material culture:

  • what do we know about the evolution of tool-use?
  • what is the relationship between material culture and symbolic or mental culture?
  • how do archeologists conceptualize culture? What are the main debates today among archeologists over how to define and study culture?

I do not want to duplicate the archeology article ... I think Culture should be about "culture" and the different views and approaches to conceptualizing and studying culture. But clearly, archeology should be represented in this.

I know everyone has other things to work on - any edits you can make would be valuable, I am sure. You may also have suggestions about the organization of the article (e.g. should we have separate sections on cultural anthropology and archeology? or should we have separate sections on Taylor's categories, non-material culture, behavioral culture, and material artefacts of the preceding two? Or something else?

Anyway, I appreciate any help you can give! Slrubenstein | Talk 16:35, 25 January 2009 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Aubrey Burl[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article Aubrey Burl, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process because of the following concern:

Does not meet WP:ACADEMIC -- former academic at a very minor institution.

All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice should explain why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page.

Avebury[edit]

Hi Adamsan, A little bit of help is required on the above, namely confirmation of the authenticity of the carbon dates citation on the Monument, which you inserted originally back in 2004. The question is: is it realistic to expect citation accuracy to one year when the date range spans nearly 800 years? As you were the original editor who made a sizeable contribution to this article you might be interested in returning to it, as it is currently under review. Regards, LouisBB (talk) 09:41, 12 July 2009 (UTC)
