What Lies Beneath: An Analysis of Historic Ceramics Found at 23SC2101, a Multi-Component Historic Site.

Author(s): Grace I. Smith; Steve Dasovich

Year: 2017

Summary

23SC2101 is a multi-component site with French Colonial through 20th century domestic occupations.  Multiple projects located ceramics from all time periods and all levels of excavation.  The site is in an urban area and many of the upper levels have suffered from severe disturbance. Besides the normal analysis of socio-economic status and site function, the analysis of ceramic date ranges by level may help to determine how severe the disturbance has been.  Information on disturbance is often overlooked, but it can be a valuable tool in analyzing site formation processes.
