Looking Beyond the Public Walkways: Introduction of Old and New Data to Expand and Enhance Interpretations of Brunswick Town and Fort Anderson
Excavations at colonial Brunswick and Civil War era Fort Anderson by Stanley South in the 1950s and 1960s were designed to make their shared footprint into a public historic park. Historical data and the artifacts uncovered through his excavations formed the initial interpretations. While this data was documented in field reports and select other venues, such as CHSA presentations in the 1960s and Method and Theory (1977), the publication of Archaeology at Colonial Brunswick (2010) largely represented South’s final interpretive statements of his work at this site. Since this publication, archaeologists have begun to use both existing and newly excavated data from beyond the public walkways to generate new ideas that build upon the South’s culture history and artifact patterns into additional anthropological issues. This presentation will summarize South’s work and serve as an introduction to more recent work that is expanding and enhancing interpretations of the town and fort.
