Reconstructing Seasonal Subsistence Patterns: A Case Study in Michigan's Saginaw Valley
Author(s): Elspeth Geiger
The Saginaw Valley provides one of the most robust records of Michigan’s prehistoric subsistence history. Of this 10,000-year history, the Middle Woodland to Late Woodland regional transformation has been a particular point of interest concerning local subsistence practices. Previous research has hypothesized a three-zone seasonal subsistence strategy as an essential element of the Saginaw Valley Late Woodland adaptive shift. In particular, this regime included a reliance on riverine and wetlands resources. This poster focuses on the interpretation of archaeobotanical macroremains from Midland Michigan site 20MD263 in the context of this regional pattern.
