  • Diasporic Flows and "Dwelling-in-Travel" in Southeastern North America (2013)
    DOCUMENT Citation Only Charles Cobb. Chester B. DePratter.

    The establishment of the Carolina colony in AD 1670 prompted a series of population movements toward Charleston among numerous Native American peoples eager to exchange slaves and hides with English colonials. In microcosm, this is a precursor and embodiment of the population flows associated with globalization today. We consider how diasporic movements between Indigenous home territories and the Carolina frontier established a pattern of what James Clifford has referred to as...

    DOCUMENT Citation Only Walter A. Clifford IV.

    The Daniel Island site is a small-scale, multi-component settlement located northwest of Charleston, South Carolina. The contact-era occupation at Daniel Island consists of an Ashley phase farmstead with historical references tying the land to the Etiwan Indians. Cultural resource investigations indicated the presence of early Ashley phase (A.D. 1590-1620) and Late Ashley phase (A.D. 1620-1670) occupations ending prior to the founding of nearby Charles Towne in 1670. I investigate the absorption...

    DOCUMENT Citation Only James A Stewart.

    Fort Congaree, a government controlled trading factory and military outpost, was established to facilitate exchanges of indigenous produced deerskins for trade goods.  Renewed archaeological excavations and historical research are opening new approaches to interpreting daily life at the site.  Focusing primarily on material culture disposal patterns, this paper will identify activity areas within Fort Congaree and situate the occupation within colonial articulations of labor and exchange. 

  • Transformation of Native Populations in Seventeenth Century Carolina: Exploring Stylistic Changes in Ashley Series Pottery (2013)
    DOCUMENT Citation Only Eric C. Poplin. Jon Marcoux.

    Ashley series pottery archaeologically defines the Indians who lived around Charleston Harbor when the first English settlers arrived in Carolina. Recent excavations and analyses demonstrate a rapid stylistic change in decorative motifs by the mid-seventeenth century, with at least two sub-phases represented in samples from two principal sites; samples from additional sites provide corroborative information and temporal associations into the early eighteenth century. Do these changing motifs...
