DOCUMENT Citation Only Rachel Hensler.

Spanish colonization of the South Atlantic coast in the 16th and 17th centuries had wide reaching effects on the greater Southeast. The Big Bend region of the Ocmulgee River Valley lies about 160 km from the coastal mission effort. However, Native Americans in the area were in contact with Coastal Native groups both prior to and after European contact, making the area a good case study to better understand how changes in the social structure of Native groups on the coast affected the interior...

More than a Rusty Nail: Archaeometric Analysis of Wrought Iron Nails from Fallen Tree, St. Catherines Island, Georgia. (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Nicholas Triozzi. Henry Towbin. Glen Keeton.

Computed Tomography (CT) scanning empowers researchers to analyze the physical properties of archaeological materials beyond their superficial qualities. Micro CT enables one to non-destructively observe and measure interior features of an artifact with high precision. It also allows one to segment conjoined materials by their relative densities. The processed images can be exported as 3-dimensional models and analyzed in an array of open-source software applications. In this case study we use...
