Summary

Between 1979 and 1985 the National Park Service conducted an archeological survey of most of the area of the Cape Cod National Seashore (CACO). Many ancient and historic period sites were identified and evaluated. Some of the evaluated sites also had small areas excavated. The areas around Nauset Harbor in Eastham and High Head in North Truro contained high concentrations of sites. Additional archeological investigations were carried out at some of the sites in these two areas. Figure 1 shows locations of the sites and general areas described in the faunal and metallurgical analyses included in this report. Other results of the CACO Archeological Survey have been published in a series of technical reports, articles, and conference papers (e.g., Borstel 1985, 1986; McManamon 1981, 1982; McManamon [editor] 1984, 1985; McManamon, Bradley, and Magennis 1986; McManamon and Bradley 1986, 1988). Some of the information also has been presented in a series of web pages posted on the park’s website (Cape Cod National Seashore 2009).

This report, which describes and interprets faunal remains and metal artifacts found in some of the prehistoric period sites discovered and evaluated during the CACO Archeological Survey, continues the reporting on the Survey’s results. The sites and archeological remains described and analyzed in this report are located in the Nauset Harbor area (19Bn308, 19Bn390, and others), near Wellfleet Harbor (19Bn387), and at High Head (19Bn415/ 481, 19Bn281, 19Bn410, and others).
