Picking Up Olive The Pieces: An Analysis On 16th Century Olive Jar From The Tristán De Luna Site
This is an abstract from the session entitled "Plus Ultra: An examination of current research in Spanish Colonial/Iberian Underwater and Terrestrial Archaeology in the Western Hemisphere." , at the 2020 annual meeting of the Society for Historical Archaeology.
In Spanish colonial sites, olive jars stand out among other ceramic types as important chronological markers due to their abundance and previously observed changes in form over three centuries. This plays a large role in identifying the age of sites in areas, like Florida and the Caribbean, where Spanish colonial rule persisted over those three centuries. Despite their importance as chronological markers, comparatively little research has been done on the 16th century form of the olive jar. This paper aims to better illustrate the characteristics of 16th century olive jar based on our collective ongoing research of olive jar sherds found at the 16th century Tristán de Luna site in Pensacola, Florida.
