"The French in the Western Hemisphere are best known from their activities in Canada and the Great Lakes. This book provides insights into their interactions with their English and Spanish rivals south of the border."--Charles Ewen, East Carolina University "The first collection of broadly multiregional and multidisciplinary archaeological studies addressing the French colonial experience in the southern United States and the Caribbean. The contributions reveal the diverse ways in which French colonists, African slaves, and Native Americans adjusted to new colonial realities through studies of material culture, landscape, architecture, diet, and bioarchaeology. Important source material for all students of the American colonial period."--Kathleen Deagan, Florida Museum of Natural History This innovative collection of essays brings together archaeological research on French colonial sites from Maryland, South Carolina, the Gulf Coast and Lower Mississippi Valley, the Caribbean, and French Guiana to explore the nature of French colonization. Specific contributions explore foodways, ceramics, plantations, architecture, and colonial interactions with Africans and Native Americans, all with an eye to what makes the French colonial endeavor distinct from better-known British or Spanish experience. Crosscutting the volume are such questions as, how are "French" sites different from those of other nationalities, what is the nature of French colonization, how can archaeology help identify particularly national histories in a given colonial setting, and how was French identity materialized and maintained in the New World?
