Some Very Middle Class Indians? Connections between the Croaton Indians of Hatteras Island and the wider 18th century world.

Author(s): Frederick J G Neville-Jones

Year: 2013

Summary

The historical narrative of the Pamlico Sound and Outer Banks of North Carolina reflect their geographical situation at the edge of the North American continent, connected to wider stories but always at the periphery. Although enjoying connections to the story of American ethnogenesis and the Lost Colony at Roanoke Island, the development of powered flight and the Wright Brothers at Kill Devil Hills and Blackbeard and the Golden Age of Piracy at Beaufort Inlet, except in the case of projects at Roanoke and Beaufort Inlet very little archaeology has been conducted in the area and then on extraordinary sites.

This paper discusses how even at the periphery, 30 miles from the American coast in the Atlantic Ocean, the forces of early modern globalisation and the export of European culture are evident in the archaeological record of the Native Croatoan Indians and the extraordinary findings of an ordinary site.
