Gathering at Silver Glen

Chapter 6 employs various lines of evidence in conveying an eventful history of Late Archaic interaction at Silver Glen Springs. At the largest scale were the regional aggregation events during which droves of people and pots from throughout peninsular Florida converged at the complex’s shell mounds. These far-reaching, momentous occurrences subsumed countless smaller ones in the form of individual shell deposits, features, and artifacts, each with their own referential connections to other times, places, people, and traditions. The repeated bundling and re-bundling of all of these materials in the context of communal feasts helped condense an entire regional-scale network of relations into a single location. Over time, these events recreated the Silver Glen complex as a broadly influential place of ritual and remembrance for the region’s otherwise dispersed Late Archaic hunter-gatherer groups.
