Settlement and Subsistence in the upper Yadkin River Valley

Last week I began, with the help of anthropology major and rising senior Peter Ellis, excavations at a site in the upper Yadkin River Valley. This work builds on the findings from last year’s fieldschool and is searching for evidence of settlement and subsistence. These are two areas that we do not fully understand for Late Woodland (AD 1000-1600) societies in the upper Yadkin River Valley. I will post periodic updates on our work throughout the summer.
