ANTH 459 - Tsenacomoco: Native Archaeology of the Chesapeake

Spring (3) Gallivan

This class explores the "deep history" of Native Chesapeake societies by tracing a 15,000-year sequence resulting in the Algonquian social landscape of "Tsenacomoco". We consider Pleistocene-era settlement, hunter-forager cultural ecology, migration, agricultural adoption, chiefdom emergence, and Native responses to colonialism.
