    Hey all –

    I went to Va. Dept. of Historical Resources today to find out about getting documents, photos and site material related to our interests. We are a go on photos for the study collection – these include great sioun preserved bone work, shell, pottery, lithics, metal and glass trade etc. i’ll have good access to site surveys and locations for matching up settlement interests from historical period. also right at contact and trade contact locations within the state. their library is open for research on interpretive data and other documents relating to va. prehistory and surrounding comparative data (NC for example). i can get either jpeg images of certain artifacts, a cd with multiples or slide duplication from their database. email me direct with special questions or specifics on $ for duplicates or specific sites / artifacts.

    the garters discussed on previous post –

    heres what i learned today!

    garter or sash – european made, for trade. Chevron designs woven in a copper wrapped cotton cordage (hence preservation). on display at dhr, slides and drawings available when i visit next on that one. also site recovery is from farther west than i expected, Greenville Co. VA. – not Ft. Christianna but contemporary, close by, and related culturally (maybe even directly). the site was after contact of course, but a previous late woodland site sits within the boundaries of the contact site. I can gather more data if warranted beside visuals. Department open and friendly – i have worked with them before. they are switching some databases, so time may be a factor, as is tight window between my work and their hours.

    Hello All, Buck I think that at this point anything would be welcome, I ofcourse want ot see the garter,even if it’s from trade material, we can still copy it it or use it as a basis for new pieces.

    hey all –

    ill get with the dhr crew on the site material and photos for this.

    forrest, in the interest of preservation – i can email this site number to you.

    if you are familiar, it comes from the “the green site” or also known as the “triangle site”. i believe Howard Mccord and floyd painter were the testing Arch’s on this.

    the site is unexcavated with the exception of testing and looting, hence the privacy.

    i just think its wise not to toss that data around for forum. email me from a “hotmail type” address if your privacy is needed.

    No worries. I dont need the exact location. Was just curious about the general section of the county it was in. Was wondering about it’s relationship to the Tutelo Fort or to Unote. Or, for that matter, the Cattail Creek area where most of our folks were living in the early 1700’s. You can email me at tyaskin@earthlink.net.

    Hello All, Buck I’d still like to see some of the images that you have talked about, if they are not possible perhaps you could post the mailing address here . All the best Tom.
