The creation of a collections-based comparative study and online database consisting of material culture recovered from 33 Potomac River archaeological sites occupied between 1500-1720 AD. (24 months)

St. Mary's College of Maryland seeks NEH support for a collections-based archaeological study of the lower Potomac River Valley between c. 1500 and 1720 AD. By taking material culture as our point of departure and incorporating the rich ethnographic evidence found in documents into our analysis, we plan to explore the forms colonial encounter took in this area of the Atlantic World and how what transpired here contributed to the profound renegotiation of identity that continues apace at the beginning of the 21st century.
