Summary

In 2007, severe drought conditions at Lake Okeechobee, in the northern Everglades revealed 6 prehistoric archaeological sites. These were the Caleb Boyer , Ritta Island , Kreamer Island and three sites referred to as the Pelican Bay series. Since Phase 1 investigations failed to yield intact strata or datable carbon, it became necessary to assign each site’s temporal position based on their artifact assemblages. This paper presents and a detailed summary of the sites’ ceramics and concludes that they range in date from 500 B.C. to approximately A.D. 1450 and thus can be assigned to the Glades I- Glades III periods.
