Coming up on Nov 8: Ceramics, Cuisine, and Climate at the Cloudman Site

November 07, 2018

Sponsored by the Coffinberry Chapter of the Michigan Archaeological Society.

Thursday, Nov. 8, 7 pm in Lake Michigan Hall, room 249.

New research focused on pottery from the Cloudman site, and multicomponent site located on Drummond Island in Lake Huron, off the coast of Northern Michigan, has enhanced prior understandings of lifeways in the Upper Great Lakes during the Woodland period. The application of multiple types of food residue analysis, as well as typological and functional analysis of cooking vessels, has created a rich picture of past diet, cooking methods, technology, and social relationships. Variation in these cultural traditions also vary through time, and may be related to environment fluctuations.
