Ethnoarchaeology and Gulf Coast Fishing Technology: An interview with Ginessa Mahar, PHD candidate in archaeology @ University of Florida

     Below is an excerpt from a lengthy interview I had originally planned to feature in the recent FPAN Central, Fall Newsletter. Due to space constraints when editing the newsletter, I thought a blog posting would be much more appropriate for such an in-depth conversation. I found Ginessa’s use of ethnoarchaeology to better understand pre-historic fishing technologies and coastal communities very interesting…hope you do to!

~~~

After finishing an outreach event at Cedar Key Public Library this past summer, I stumbled on an archaeological dig going on in the yard of a historic house built on a small midden along the Gulf. There I met Ginessa Mahar, PHD candidate in archaeology from the University of Florida. We chatted briefly about the work she was doing; her dissertation is focused on prehistoric fishing technologies employed along the Florida Gulf Coast, specifically the small islands of  North Key, Seahorse Key, and Snake Key located off Cedar Key.

What I found most intriguing was her method of research, integrating both archaeological and ethnographic approaches. By working with current fishing communities along the Gulf coast, Ginessa is hoping to “develop new models of fishing practices that can be used to better interpret the archaeological record regarding past human-environmental interactions along Florida’s coast.” (University of Florida, Laboratory of Southeastern Archaeology website). I had the opportunity to sit down with Ginessa and talk more about her work.

CIMG5300

Understanding the Nature Coast’s rich archaeological heritage, why did you pick Cedar Key to focus your research?  

I used to work for the Museum of Natural History in New York and our field project was on the Atlantic Coast in Georgia. I did my Master thesis there, ran their field projects. I’ve been a coastal archaeologist for close to a dozen years now. So I got here and started thinking about the “missing millennium,” that period between the late archaic and woodland (roughly 3,000 to 4,000 years ago).

So we [Mahar and Dr. Ken Sassaman] were thinking if that evidence is anywhere it would be on the Gulf Coast. We’re more likely to find it out there because of the gradual slope in coastal water depth. That was my initial focus, but then very quickly it became something else when I took a class in ethno-archaeology. I realized I enjoy talking to people. I can talk to them about sea level change and learn how it has affected their lives. There are a lot of folks out there that have seen entire islands disappear in their lifetime! But even more than that, I was better understanding their connections to traditional methods and lifeways associated with fishing.  I think that’s been a strong tradition for thousands of years across the planet! So I think research like this is applicable especially with the loss of fishing communities over time, for all kinds of different reasons.

So when I first decided to look at fishing on the gulf coast, because we have 5,000 years of people being fisher folk out there, I decided to start working with local community members to see how I could understand fishing in that particular area. So it really started as an ethnographic approach to archaeology. Let me see how people practice fishing and then maybe I can find reconstructions of that in the archaeological record. So if they were using nets or they were using weirs, hook and line, they (current fisherman) understand the fish and how they target different fish species.

CIMG5124

Will you please describe what a “fish-weir” is as opposed to cast-nets or other types of net?

A fish weir is a fish trap You can have a “tidal weir” where at high tide the fish can swim over the barrier, but at low tide they are trapped behind this barrier and confined in a place. So what you have done is lured the fish into a trap and then you can harvest them more easily. Mostly you can trap demersal or bottom dwelling fish that aren’t used to swimming up into the water column, fish like flounder, sheepshead, or other small demersal fishes with a tidal weir.

Then there’s another kind of weir called a “long-shore weir” that’s constructed by having a leader or a fence that comes out perpendicular from the shoreline. That leader goes into deeper water and at the end of it there’s a heart-shaped pod, where again the fish will swim down the leader and into the trap. For this kind of weir, it’s dependent on fish behavior. Schooling fish will swim into the trap and just perpetually swim around in circles. They won’t know that the entrance is also the exit. Then at low tide you can go and harvest them.

We know through ethnohistorical accounts that there is documentation by Spanish explorers of evidence of fish weirs being constructed out of limestone cobbles. In south Florida there’s word that the Calusa made them out of heaps and piles of oyster shells. So essentially the fish come to you, it’s a more passive fishing method.

CIMG5387

Do you think the “fisher folk” you’ve worked with on Cedar Key had an understanding of the archaeology of the area?

The people that I work with out in Cedar Key, it took them a little while to believe I was an archaeologist because I would just be asking questions all the time about what they do fishing. They were wondering what that had to do with anything. But I think now they get it. They seem to have a sense or a pride or connection with Native Americans that live there before them because they have such a love for that place. Especially when they start thinking that these weren’t just Native Americans wondering around in the woods, we’re talking about fisher people!

Crystal River Archaeological State Park Mural Project

 

Friends of Crystal River State Parks, along with the Florida Park Service, Florida Department of Environmental Protection, Florida Public Archaeology Network, and Gulf Archaeological Research Institute, is commissioning a mural to be painted at the Crystal River Archaeological State Park. The scene will be depicting “a day in the life” of the native people who once lived at the site.  Please click on the link below to download all the pertinent information. The Mural Packet includes a prospectus with important dates, description of location of the mural within the museum, and several archaeological interpretations of the site prehistorically to help guide the artist with content. Though the artist is free to render the scene as he or she envisions it to be, the packet helps to clarify specific aspects of the landscape, people, and culture in order to maintain historical accuracy. The mural committee would very much like to begin this project as soon as possible, so a quick response from interested artists would be appreciated. Please contact Nigel Rudolph (snrudolph@usf.edu) at the FPAN Central Regional Center @ Crystal River Preserve State Park  for any additional information.

Junior Archaeologist and Florida State Parks Summer Camp

by Jason D. Moser

The Florida Public Archaeology Network (FPAN) is pleased to announce the 2013 Junior Archaeologist and Florida State Parks Summer Camp at the Crystal River Preserve State Park. This year FPAN is collaborating with staff and volunteers from the Crystal River State Parks and the St. Martins Marsh and Big Bend Seagrasses Aquatic Preserve to offer two, one-week-long Summer Camp programs. The summer camps will introduce 7 to 11 year olds to a variety of interdisciplinary programs which will engage and educate Citrus County’s youth about archaeology, history, wildlife ecology, social responsibility, and respect for nature in a fun environment. Many of these educational programs fulfill Florida’s Sunshine State Standards for education.

Boat-building 101

Junior archaeologists will be introduced to the field of archaeology through a week-long program of tours, activities and games with archaeologists, park and aquatic preserve staff. During a tour of the Crystal River Archaeological State Park campers will be introduced to the prehistory of the region and learn about what it takes to be an archaeologist. They will participate in a wide variety of activities designed to explore the many different skills practiced by prehistoric people. They will learn about the technology of Florida’s prehistoric people such as making pottery and learning about the tools and weapons of ancient Floridians. They will learn about how archaeologists use these artifacts to understand the past.

Students will receive “hands-on” experience on a simulated archaeological excavation and participate in a field laboratory where they will learn information about the plants and animals used by the prehistoric people. Afterwards, they will assist University of South Florida (USF) archaeologists during field school excavations at the Crystal River site. Campers will be introduced to the importance of rivers and marshes in Florida while they learn about the regions watershed and its history. Our Campers will assist The Crystal River Boat Builders in the construction of a 1800s wood, sailing vessel. In this fashion they will be introduced to the different periods of human history in Citrus County, Florida. Finally, campers will learn about the Crystal River Preserve State Park and the importance of its ecology. They will participate in a guided exploration of the different ecosystems within the park. Campers will take tram rides out into the park to collect plants from different environments and then return to identify what they are. We will also take a boat tour on the Crystal River to view the habitats and wildlife that the Crystal River supports.

This year we are accepting twenty (20) applicants for each week. Camp hours are from 8:30 to 2:00 PM with a morning break for snacks and lunch. Campers need to bring their own bagged lunch and snacks. The camp is beginning to fill, so reserve your spot fast! Please call (352)795-0208 for more camp information.
The cost of this year’s camp will be $85.00 per camper per week (due at registration). If you are interested in having your child attend, please apply by May 28th, 2013. The first camp will run from June 3rd through the 7th and the second will run from June 10th through the 14th. Please contact Beth Blankenship, Bev Elliott or Jason Moser at 352-795-0208 or email us at blankenship@mail.usf.edu or jmoser1@usf.edu for more information. Applications will be available for download at http://flpublicarchaeology.org/crc/campRegistration.pdf.

Florida Archaeology Month 2013….Viva Florida 500

Florida Archaeology Month 2013 Poster

March is fast approaching …and that means that Florida Archaeology (FAM) 2013 is nearly upon us! Florida Archaeology Month is a celebration of 12, 000 years of Florida history and prehistory. The theme for this year’s Archaeology Month is Viva Florida 500: This theme was selected to mark the 500th anniversary of the landing of Juan Ponce de León’s arrival in Florida and his interactions with its indigenous people. From that point on, Florida has seen the arrival of many people of different nationalities and cultures. The archaeology of Florida’s diverse legacy begins at these distant points and continues into the present day.

As part of the celebration of Florida Archaeology Month a number of events have been organized throughout the state during March. A full listing of events and programs can be found on the events webpages of the regional centers of the Florida Public Archaeology Network or on the Viva Florida 500 website at http://www.vivaflorida.org/ designed to encourage Floridians and visitors to learn more about the archaeology and history of the state, and to preserve these important parts of Florida’s rich cultural heritage.
