This is a paper/report submission presented at the 2020 annual meeting of the Society for Historical Archaeology.

Early Colonial (1650s through 1750s) sites on Maryland’s Western Shore occupy several distinct ecosystems, each offering opportunities for, and imposing constraints on, provisioning strategies. Faunal data assembled from eight Maryland sites along the Chesapeake Bay measure that variability as the first phase in a larger study that explores varying dietary patterns and the effects of different provisioning strategies on Chesapeake ecosystems.
