PROJECT Uploaded by: Heather Walder

This project contains all data for Heather Walder's dissertation, completed in spring of 2015. Abstract: This dissertation addresses the timing of the introduction, exchange, and social implications of two complementary lines of evidence, reworked copper and brass objects and glass trade beads, from 38 archaeological sites of the Upper Great Lakes region dated to c. 1630 to 1730. In this situation of intercultural contact and colonialism, local Midwestern Native peoples encountered...
