There Were Pots After All: Production and Use of Ceramic Vessels in the Upper Laurentian Region of Québec, Canada
This is an abstract from the "SAA 2019: General Sessions" session, at the 84th annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology.
Nomadic hunter-gatherer populations of the Eastern Subarctic were once thought to have largely rejected or ignored pottery technology. The archaeological recovery of ceramics at several sites north of the St. Lawrence Lowlands over the past few decades has passed the status of anecdotal finds and seriously challenges this assumption. Questions remain, however, about the origins, production and use of these containers. Here we present recent ceramic data collected in the Upper Laurentian region of Québec (Canada) combining typological, technological, and organic residue analysis. This is part of a larger research project investigating how Northern Algonquin populations negotiated their identities through foods and foodways in the face of intergroup contacts and technological innovations.
