Science Café: “The Science of Archaeology”
October 10, 2017 at 07:00 pm • RGWFU Education Wing
From AD 800-1600, Native American settlements in the upper Yadkin River Valley remained small, consisting of one to four households. This was unique for the region, which was characterized by increasing community size after AD 1200. This research examines artifact distributions and sediment properties from a site in the Valley to describe the settlements, and it examines regional social, political, economic, environmental, and landscape data to explain why this unique pattern formed.
