In chapter 4, attention is directed toward the Late Archaic Orange pottery assemblages from Silver Glen, and, in particular, to what patterned variation in the technological styles of these pots indicates regarding the kinds of social gatherings in which they were involved. This discussion is prefaced with a review of current knowledge regarding the manufacture, circulation, and chronology of Orange pottery in northeast Florida. Data are then presented related to numerous metric, formal, and decorative attributes of Orange vessel lots from five distinct and temporally overlapping contexts at Silver Glen. Spatial disparities in vessel size, surface decorations, and use-wear patterns suggest that the two shell mounds were the sites of larger-scale and more culturally diverse gatherings than other areas of the complex. These pottery data are thus consistent with those from the broader region that support the notion that Orange shell mounds were places of social aggregation and feasting. This suggests that Orange pots, by way of their consumption at ritually-charged communal events and structured deposition in various contexts, were instrumental in both creating mounds as particular kinds of places and in negotiating and maintaining the networks of relationships associated with them.
