Indigenous Borderlands of the Chesapeake: The Lower Rappahannock Valley Landscape, 200-1850 CE

Excavation and artifact analysis at eleven Native American sites along the lower Rappahannock river in Virginia, leading to the development of interpretive print and online publications and GIS datasets. (26 months)

The project seeks NEH support to develop a baseline history of an understudied but key watershed in the Chesapeake region of North America. The Rappahannock River valley, located between the better known Potomac and James rivers, was, circa 1608, densely populated with well-organized polities, presupposing a dynamic but still unknown history. Using collections- and fieldwork-based methodologies along with GIS technologies, Saint Mary's College of Maryland and its collaborators will explore this borderland river drainage, addressing questions of migration and mobility, political development, the forging of group identities, and responses to colonialism. Our approach is rooted in landscape, the digital humanities, and a perspective that emphasizes the long durée.

Conference: American History through the Archaeology of the Potomac River Valley

A conference and edited volume of essays on American history through the lens of archaeology of the Potomac River Valley.

This grant funds a small conference focused on developing an edited book manuscript describing research completed as part of the NEH-funded project, “The Lower Potomac River Valley at Contact, 1500-1720” (RZ-51442-12). This conference will be organized by Dr. Julie King and her co-collaborator, Barbara J. Heath (University of Tennessee), and will be held Sunday, May 14 through Wednesday, May 17, 2017. The book manuscript proposed as an outcome of this project would consist of 14-15 chapters by different authors, all of whom participated in the original sponsored NEH project in one capacity or another. The purpose of this concluding conference would be to review, critique, and better integrate individual essays for a planned peer-reviewed book. The goal is to have a final manuscript ready for submission to an academic press on or about September 1, 2017.

Colonial Encounters: The Lower Potomac River at Contact, 1500-1720 AD

The creation of a collections-based comparative study and online database consisting of material culture recovered from 33 Potomac River archaeological sites occupied between 1500-1720 AD. (24 months)

St. Mary's College of Maryland seeks NEH support for a collections-based archaeological study of the lower Potomac River Valley between c. 1500 and 1720 AD. By taking material culture as our point of departure and incorporating the rich ethnographic evidence found in documents into our analysis, we plan to explore the forms colonial encounter took in this area of the Atlantic World and how what transpired here contributed to the profound renegotiation of identity that continues apace at the beginning of the 21st century.
