A Flow of People: Household and Community at the Cane Notch Site, a Protohistoric Cherokee Town on the Nolichucky, Upper East Tennessee
Radiometric dates from the protohistoric Cane Notch Site on the Nolichucky River in upper East Tennessee indicate contemporaneous ceramic assemblages characterized by multiple traditions. Our work produced wares referable to the Qualla and Overhill series, wares directly associated with 18th century Cherokee villages elsewhere. Burke wares, from the eastern side of the Appalachians, also occur in large numbers. These “different” wares at Cane Notch share common attributes, however, that also reflect a local identity. Using geophysics, excavations of selected house floors, and ceramic attribute analyses (including p-xrf analysis), we explore ways of doing and identity at the Cane Notch Site.
