    The Amdo plateau is well-known as a language convergence area (Dwyer 1995, Slater 2003, Janhunen 2004). But what kind of influence has Tibetan had on the languages of that region? What cultural contacts have facilitated ...
  • An analysis of the skeletal material from Sugar Creek Ossuary 

    Nickels, Martin K. (University of Kansas, 1971-05-31)
    The purpose of this study is essentially twofold: first, to record and present the osteological data from the skeletal material recovered at the Sugar Creek Ossuary (23PL58) and, second, to assess this material's affinities ...
  • Steed-Kisker and Nebraska ceramics : a new interpretation 

    Greatorex, Linda J. (University of Kansas, 1997-05-31)
    Ceramic variation has been used as the major criterion for taxonomically separating archaeological complexes in the Central Plains during the Middle Ceramic period (A.D.900-A.D. I 500). The Steed-Kisker and Nebraska phases ...
  • Dataset on the epidemiology and genetic diversification of dengue virus (DENV) serotypes and genotypes in Mexico
