THE STATE-VIDE ARCHEOLOGICAL SITE RECORDING SYSTEM


In order to systematically place on record all archeological sites in

a state it is necessary to number them according to some system. Further-

more, it is desirable that this numbering be of such a nature that sites in

nearby areas are grouped together. Two methods designed to accomplish this

purpose are now in general use.

In the first method the area under study, a state or other unit is

laid out in a grid pattern by the establishment of coordinate lines. The

areas defined by the grids and parts thereof are designated by names or

letters and the sites are numbered within each grid section or subsection.

This system is used in the Southwest, being most widely applied by the Gila

Pueblo in Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, and Chihuahua (Gladwin, 1928; Fisher,

1930).

A second method, even more widely used, is based on county units.1 In

each state counties are given numbers 'or abbreviations, within each county

sites are given numbers. Thus a site is designated, as the-case may be, by

an initial county number followed by a site number or an initial county

abbreviation followed by a site number.

In the case of Florida this second form is used-that is each county

is given an abbreviation and each site within a number. In doing this it

is most practical to use two letters for a county abbreviation rather than


F of 1For example see Heizer (1950) and Fenenga (1949) for the use of this
0. I bysstem in California. The latter reference has an extensive bibliography.

one. Possible confusion rith grid coordinate numbering systems in excavated

sites is thus avoided. In two Florida counties, Alachua and Lee, this-

could not be avoided; a simple one letter designation for the former was

already in use and the latter is too short to abbreviate.

Unfortunately two distinct systems of county abbreviations and number-

ing are now in use by institutions interested in Florida archeology. The

present system, however, is the one in use by the two state universities,

University of Florida and Florida State University, as well as the Smith-

sonian Institution and Yale University. State coverage with-this system

is wide, sites in the Northwyst Gulf Coast, Central Gulf Coast, and

Manatee areas.being included in Gordon Willey's recent book (Willey, 1949);

those of the Indian River in Irving Rouse's (1951) monograph on that area:

and those of the Northern St. Johns and Glades areas in studies of John M.

Goggin to be published in the near future.

In ordet to convert these site numbers to the national system in use

by the Smithsonian Institution River Basin surveys the state number (derived

frao its alphabetical order), .8, can be added in front of the county abbrev-

iation. However, within the state this is not commonly used. For example,

the famous Mt. Royal mound on the St. Johns River is site 35 in Putnam

County, thus, 8Fu 35 or simple Pu 35. ...In numbering new sites the master

files at the University of Florida or Florida State University should.. first

be consulted in order to determine the latest number for any given county.

For convenience in allocation of numbers, the University of Florida is

assuming primary responsibility for numbering sites east of the Aucilla

River while- Florida State University is numbering those west of that

stream. Thus duplication is prevented.
