Author(s): Sadie S Dasovich

Year: 2018

Summary

23SC2101 is a multi-component site with French Colonial through 20th-Century domestic occupations. A number of gunflints have been located throughout the site. The site is located in an urban area and many of the upper levels have suffered from severe disturbance. Based off the shape and color of these gunflints, this poster will suggest the weapon types the gunflints may have been used in and the geographic areas from which the flints were sourced. Analysis of the wear-patterning will also be discussed.
