Co-residence in Hunter-Gatherer Groups: New Insights from the Southern Florida Interior
Author(s): Matthew Colvin
This is an abstract from the "SAA 2019: General Sessions" session, at the 84th annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology.
In recent years, there has been a resurgence in interest of co-residence among hunter-gatherers, chiefly in relation to how groups solve collective action problems. The southern Florida interior can greatly contribute to these ongoing discussions with many multi-mound complexes exhibiting periods of monument construction and varying degrees of co-residence among hunter-gatherers. However, the nature or duration of residence at these multi-mound sites remains unclear. This presentation employs recent excavations of proposed house mounds at Fort Center (8GL13) as a case study to explore co-residence among Fisher-Hunter-Gatherers prior to institutionalized hierarchy.
