Interpretation of this heavily disturbed archaeological site relied on the excavated material culture. Detailed analysis was done on the ceramics, glass, and faunal remains. These artifacts and ecofacts had the most potential to enhance the level of information known about the site. The manufacturing periods for ceramic types helped develop some chronology for cultural activity within the site. Time-sensitive evidence from bottle glass and faunal remains reinforced the general trend noted for the ceramics. An assessment of pre-Columbian Lucayan material culture was also included.
