Summary

This project contains data from 17 seasons of excavation from the Eaton Site in West Seneca, NY just south of the city of Buffalo. It is a multi-component site that was occupied intermittently from late Paleo-Indian times through the early 19th century when it contained a cabin on what was then the Buffalo Creek Reservation. The bulk of material recovered from the site is from an Iroquoian village dating to the mid-sixteenth century. The major portions of three longhouses and a palisade pertaining to the Iroquoian component were recorded on the site. Eaton is one of a number of large Iroquoian village sites found in this region dating from the 15th through the mid-17th century. The Archaeological Conservancy now owns most of the site.

This project contains data recovered as a result of 17 summer field schools directed by William Engelbrecht. An excavation report was written after each field school and these have been uploaded to this project. Rob Pltier uploaded approximately 250 digital images of floor plans of excavation units. Both these images and the yearly excavation reports are grouped together under collections for each excavation year (i.e. Eaton 1975, Eaton 1977, etc.). Five Access tables (Tables 1-4 and Extras) give artifact counts by unit and level. Publications relating to the Eaton site have also been scanned and uploaded as have many artifact photos.
