Summary

The piney woods area of El Camino Real de los Tejas, spanning from Natchitoches, Louisiana to Crockett, Texas is an area characterized by multi-cultural interaction under generally peaceful conditions during the middle to late 18th century’this would change after the Louisiana Purchase of 1803. The French in Louisiana had established economic and social relations with the Spanish and various American Indian groups in Texas during the 18th century and identifying French pottery in the piney woods area of El Camino Real de los Tejas allows an examination of the nature of the interaction between the various European and American Indian groups. French colonial pottery recovered from 18th century sites in NW Louisiana (Natchitoches Parish) and Deep East Texas (Nacogdoches County) excavated within the last ten years will be discussed and interpreted.
