’77 to ’17: Re-investigating the Perimeter of St. Catherines Island after Four Decades
Author(s): Thomas Blaber
This is an abstract from the "SAA 2019: General Sessions" session, at the 84th annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology.
In 1977 Drs. Chester DePratter and David Hurst Thomas began a complete perimeter survey of St. Catherines Island. In their initial survey they identified more than 100 new archaeological sites that were either visible on the surface or eroding out of the bank of the island. Many of these sites were not investigated again until January 2017 when archaeologists from the American Museum of Natural History began an 18-month systematic survey that followed and expanded upon the original 1977 survey. This poster will show the objectives, methodology and initial findings of this investigation.
