The Struggle Was Real: The End of the Archaic and the Onset of the Intermediate Indian Period in Eastern Subarctic North America
This is an abstract from the "SAA 2019: General Sessions" session, at the 84th annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology.
The transition between the end of the Archaic and the Intermediate Indian Period in the Eastern Subarctic of North America was marked by significant changes in just about all dimensions of Amerindian life—technology, raw material use, exchange networks, social organization, architecture, burial customs, settlement patterns, and subsistence strategies. These changes, coinciding with an apparent reduction of site numbers and site distribution, suggest that this transition was less of a strategic reorganization and more of what we may call a cultural and demographic collapse.
