9780813027807: Indian and European Contact in Context: The Mid-Atlantic Region

Between the 16th and 19th centuries as indigenous Native Americans, colonizing Europeans, and Africans came into sustained contact in North America, their cultures underwent a variety of complex transformations. While other scholarly books that examine "cultural contact" have traditionally viewed the issue through a single lens, this collection offers a strikingly different picture by collecting a variety of archaeological and ethnohistorical perspectives to formulate an interdisciplinary investigation.

Book Description:

"A strong and diverse volume which offers new perspectives on the early contact period (A.D. 1500-1750) in the Mid-Atlantic. . . . The strength of the essays—indeed, what links the volume together--is the commitment to integrating the archaeological data on an equal basis with the well-known ethnohistoric and historic sources of the region."--Jeffrey L. Hantman, University of Virginia   Between the 16th and 19th centuries as indigenous Native Americans, colonizing Europeans, and Africans came into sustained contact in North America, their cultures underwent a variety of complex transformations. While other scholarly books that examine "cultural contact" have traditionally viewed the issue through a single lens, this collection offers a strikingly different picture by collecting a variety of archaeological and ethnohistorical perspectives to formulate an interdisciplinary investigation.   Contents Introduction, by Dennis B.
