Zooarchaeological Findings and the Importance of Seascape at Weeden Island Archaeological Site (8PI1)
Author(s): Sharlene ODonnell
Many indigenous and non-indigenous communities throughout the world depend on coastal and riverine environments for their livelihood and subsistence. The seascape is a setting of daily activities, and these communities have a detailed knowledge of their surrounding environment, the tides, and the seasons, all of which influence their decisions for catchment locations of habitat-specific faunal assemblages. For this paper, ethnographic research, zooarchaeology, biological salinity tolerances, GIS mapping, and Tampa Bay seasonal salinity data are used to recognize the importance of seascape for the people inhabiting Weedon Island, Florida during the Safety Harbor period (AD 900 – AD 1725).
