Processes of cultural change
Jenneth Elizabeth Curtis
Written in English
The archaeology of the Rice Lake-Trent River Region in south-central Ontario provides a case study for the investigation of processes of cultural change involving social interaction. A synthesis of previous archaeological research indicates that the period encompassing the Middle to Late Woodland transition and Iroquoian origins is poorly known in this region. It nonetheless represents a time during which significant cultural changes were taking place. The processes of cultural change are explored by contrasting the migration and in situ development hypotheses for Iroquoian origins while incorporating the central role of social interaction. Analysis of data obtained through excavations at the Spillsbury Bay and Log Cabin Point Sites provides new information concerning the nature of Middle and early Late Woodland occupations in the region. The ceramic assemblages from these two sites are placed within the wider context of the regional scale in combination with previously excavated collections. Expectations for ceramic patterning derived from the cultural change scenarios are then evaluated against this regional database. This assessment is facilitated through the use of two statistical techniques: frequency distributions and correspondence analysis. The results clearly demonstrate both continuity and patterned change within the region. In addition to supporting the in situ hypothesis, analysis of the ceramic assemblages enables the establishment of a regional ceramic sequence. This sequence consists of three temporal phases of the Point Peninsula Tradition: Trent, Rice Lake, and Sandbanks; followed by the Early Ontario Iroquois Stage of the Ontario Iroquois Tradition. Interregional comparisons between Sandbanks ceramics and those of the contemporary Princess Point Complex in southwestern Ontario provide a broader perspective on the nature of the Middle to Late Woodland transition in the Northeast.
