Preliminary Report on the Archaeobotany of the John Hollister Site

Author(s): William A. Farley

Year: 2018

Summary

This paper reports on and begins the process of addressing research questions related to the archaeobotanical remains from the 17th-century John Hollister Site in Glastonbury, Connecticut. The site boasts an extraordinary level of botanical preservation and promises to be a significant contribution to the understanding of the period’s regional foodways. Initial results suggest a mixture of indigenous plants and taxa that likely entered the region with early European settlement. This mirrors the material culture assemblage which likewise represents a complex set of cultural entanglements.
