Defining Boundaries: An Investigation of Boynton Mounds (8PB100)

Author(s): Rebecca Stitt

Year: 2016


In fall of 2013 preparations began for a limited study of the Boynton Mounds (8PB100) archaeological site. This group of earthwork lies nestled between the Okeechobee basin and East Okeechobee areas in central Palm Beach County Florida. Investigations aim to reveal similarities and dissimilarities between the two areas, which, in turn, may lead to a better understanding of regional variation in South Florida. The primary objective of this study is to identify which culture region Boynton Mounds is most similar to across time, the East Okeechobee or the Okeechobee basin culture areas.
