Coastal Louisiana’s Vanishing Archaeological Record: The Last Investigations at the Adams Bay Mounds Site (16PL8)
This is an abstract from the "SAA 2019: General Sessions" session, at the 84th annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology.
Sea level rise coupled with coastal erosion and subsidence has created an unprecedented land loss crisis for coastal Louisiana. This presentation provides an overview of the effects of land loss to coastal Louisiana’s archaeological record observed at different scales (coast-wide, regional, and the individual archaeological site) and highlights the 2018 summer fieldwork at the Adams Bay Site (16PL8). This site is a Plaquemines mound complex (1200-1500 AD) located in Plaquemines Parish, Louisiana, which will be fully destroyed by coastal erosion and subsidence in just under eight years.
