ANTH 559 - Tsenacomoco: Native Archaeology of the Chesapeake

Spring Credits: 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”. The class considers Pleistocene-era settlement, hunter-forager cultural ecology, Woodland-period migration, agricultural adoption, chiefdom emergence, Native responses to colonialism, and contemporary uses of the Native past.
