Intramural activities of a deerskin trading factory in colonial South Carolina

Author(s): James A Stewart

Year: 2013

Summary

Fort Congaree, a government controlled trading factory and military outpost, was established to facilitate exchanges of indigenous produced deerskins for trade goods.  Renewed archaeological excavations and historical research are opening new approaches to interpreting daily life at the site.  Focusing primarily on material culture disposal patterns, this paper will identify activity areas within Fort Congaree and situate the occupation within colonial articulations of labor and exchange.
