Spain at Mackinac? Adornment Artifacts From a Fur Trade Household
Author(s): Lynn Evans
This is an abstract from the "Frontier and Settlement Archaeology" session, at the 2019 annual meeting of the Society for Historical Archaeology.
Michilimackinac is well known as a French and British fur trade entrepôt in what is now northern Michigan. Analysis of personal adornment artifacts from a recently excavated fur trader's household revealed that the assemblage included some artifacts more commonly associated with the Spanish, jet beads and a fan stick fragment. Are these artifacts evidence for trade with the Spanish at St. Louis, or were the French or British commonly using these artifacts?
