The years 1677–1754 provide a swath of time sufficient to observe long-term trends in Seneca history surrounding the period during which the Townley-Read site was occupied. This chapter deals with the regional and supra-regional political-economic context that would have affected the Townley-Read residents; it supplies a partial and thematic history of the Seneca homeland rather than a fully rounded picture of the Seneca, much less the Iroquois, situation. The 1677–1754 era is bracketed by the diplomatic visit of New York official Wentworth Greenhalgh to Seneca territory in 1677 and the beginning of the Seven Years' War in 1754. The chapter, like the period, is divided into four segments based on the chapter's interpretation of political-economic conditions within the Seneca homeland: the Twenty Years' War, 1677–1701; a period of uncertainty, 1701–1713; the “middleman” period, 1713–1724; and the Oswego era, 1724–1754. A separate, final section considers the overarching issue of migration and the possible shift in French and British focus to the Ohio region.
