Architectural Features versus Historic Maps of Fort St. Pierre, 1719-1729, Vicksburg, Mississippi.
Fort St. Pierre (1719-1729), located near present-day Vicksburg, Mississippi, was a short-lived French fort on the periphery of colonial Louisiane. Data from the 1974 through 1976 excavations have recently been collated with unreported excavation data acquired in 1977; and now provides a more complete picture of the perimeter of the fort (the palisade and dry moat) and the structural remains within this perimeter. Historical maps of this fort depict an orderly layout of fort structures; but the archaeological features reveal a crowded and confusing arrangement, use and abandonment of buildings within the fort. This presentation will briefly discuss the fort, its history, and will discuss in depth how aspects of daily life and the environment influenced and affected the reality of the fort’s architecture.
