Foodways in the 18th Century Mississippi Valley

Author(s): Meredith Hardy; Elizabeth M Scott

Year: 2018


Archaeological investigations up and down the Mississippi River Valley have produced a wealth of information about the ways people in French and Spanish colonies identified, obtained, and consumed food. Evidence regarding the maintenance of tradition and the emergence of new practice is found in the remains of foods and the wares used to prepare and serve them. In this paper, we present these practices from sites along the expanse of the Mississippi River, highlighting their differences and similarities.
