Spanish Mission Archaeology in the Southeast. 1974-2014 A.D. (After Dave)

Author(s): Kathleen Deagan-Harris

Year: 2015


The archaeological study of Spanish missions among the American Indians has been underway in the Southeastern and Western regions of the United States for more than 70 years. This paper considers the directions and contributions of that body of work in the Southeast, with particular attention to the interdisciplinary impacts of the Santa Catalina Mission program, carried out by Dave Thomas between 1974 and today on St. Catherine's Island, Georgia.
