Summary

The report, which is volume 2, deals with various kinds of prehistoric remains in a series of chapters. Each chapter uses a common set and sequence of units of analysis to minimize confusion about the identity and locations of concentrations. A series of foldout maps will help with the geographic orientation as well. Eight chapters are included in Volume 2. One of these is a description and analysis of the kinds of archeological deposits and lithic assemblages found by the survey. Another chapter describes the floral and faunal remains found. Shellfish remains found in the archeological deposits and the seasonality information derived from them are described and analyzed in two chapters. Prehistoric ceramics are described and analyzed in two chapters, one of which focuses on the technology and style of the ancient ceramics. A description of the types of lithics used for stone tools and the sources of these lithics is presented in one chapter. The final chapter is an interpretation of the human adaptations followed by ancient and historic Native American populations who resided on the Cape.
