Prehistoric Tree Island Use in the Northern Everglades: New Evidence from the Late Archaic
A season of test excavations at a late archaic tree island site in south Florida has produced several interesting, if broad, patterns in the practices of prehistoric peoples living within this landscape. Stratigraphic evidence further supported by AMS dating reveal use of the tree island spanning nearly 1000 years of periodic long-term human occupation. Evidence attests to a certain "social fabric" at the settlement, suggesting its identity as a memorable place on the landscape, a quality contrary to what might be expected of existing models of tree island use in the prehistoric Everglades.
