Binghamton MAPA grad student floats Archaic period shell ring samples from SC

Anna Patchen is a first year Master's in Public Archaeology student. Today, she floated samples in the Binghamton University Public Archaeology Facility's flo-tech float machine. These samples were recovered from Hilton Head Island, South Carolina where Binghamton Assistant Professor Matt Sanger is leading a project on studying hunter-gatherers who inhabited the region several millennia ago. The site is a shell ring formed by the discard of mollusks and fish. Through Anna's research, we look forward to seeing what kind of plants these people ate, used, and discarded as well.
