Virtual Lunch and Learn: "Finding Fish Weirs in East North America: Preliminary Findings from the North Carolina Fish

Friday, May 21, 2021, 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM


"Finding Fish Weirs in East North America: Preliminary Findings from the North Carolina Fish Weir Archaeological Project," presented by Dr. David J. Cranford, NC Office of State Archaeology Stone fish weirs are relatively common features in many waterways above the fall-line in the Eastern Unites States. These usually "V" or "W"-shaped stone alignments reflect both pre-colonial and historic methods of fish procurement and represent an often overlooked component of the cultural landscape. Due to several factors they have received only intermittent archaeological attention and are rarely the subject of systematic survey. Relatively recent advances in the quality of satellite based imagery, like Google Earth, have made the identification and recording of fish weir sites possible on a regional scale. This talk will provide some initial findings and insights of the North Carolina Fish Weir Archaeological Project. To register, send your email to usclnasp@mailbox.sc.edu and the Native American Studies Center will respond with the meeting ID and password required to join the program.
