Anglo-Native Interactions in Context: A Discussion of "Anglo-Native Zones" at the Country’s House Site

Author(s): Rebecca Webster

Year: 2019

Summary

This is an abstract from the "Archaeologies of Contact and Colonialism" session, at the 2019 annual meeting of the Society for Historical Archaeology.

Until recently, the interactions between Native peoples and European settlers in Maryland during the seventeenth century have been treated as momentary incidences of contact of individuals occupying the same colonial landscape. However, in reality, the lives of the Native peoples of Maryland and the European settlers were if not directly, indirectly connected to one another, shaping the Maryland cultural landscape. This paper examines documentary and archaeological evidence associated with the Country’s House Site in St. Mary’s City, Maryland in order to discuss the context in which zones of Anglo-Native interactions on the site occurred and how these interactions shaped colonial Maryland.
