Archaeology Lecture Series - The Pollen Record at Crystal River: Reconstructing Environmental Change, Site History, and Ancient Plant Use
Thursday, December 15, 2016 from 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM (EST)
The forager communities living in the Crystal River/ Salt River drainage of Florida’s Big Bend Gulf Coast during the Woodland Period (1000 BC – AD 1050) are well known among southeastern archaeologists for their elaborate shell mound architecture, maritime lifeways, and participation in wide-ranging exchange networks. What remains uncertain are the local environmental conditions involved in the development and history of the Crystal River Site (8Ci1) as a village and civic–ceremonial center. By combining the analysis of ancient pollen grains preserved within archaeological soils with an extensive radiocarbon dating program, it is possible to shed light on how local communities experienced and interacted with broad environmental fluctuations during the first millennium AD.
