Living on the Edge

Foodways and Early Expressions of Creole Culture on the French Colonial Gulf Coast Frontier

(p.152) 9 Living on the Edge
French Colonial Archaeology in the Southeast and Caribbean



University Press of Florida

Archaeological excavations provide evidence of actions and beliefs of past peoples. Material culture is the physical reality of the belief systems of non-isolated culture groups and is indicative of the dynamic nature of social contact, interaction, and exchange. In this chapter, the ethos of the eighteenth-century French-Colonial Gulf-Coast region via foodways and cuisine is examined, as are design elements evident on the ceramics that were selected, purchased, and used. Through an examination of context, one can better understand processes of cultural change and expression via borrowing, adaptation, and creolization.

Keywords:   foodways, Gulf Coast, ceramics, cooking, interaction, creolization
