SHIFTING CONTOURS OF ARCHAEOLOGICAL KNOWLEDGE IN COLONIAL CONTEXTS 

Professor Michael S. Nassaney

Department of Anthropology

Western Michigan University

Narratives about the past are never divorced from the social contexts in which they are created. Colonial contexts have been especially subject to political influence when they involve descendant communities, directly or tangentially. Archaeology at Fort St. Joseph, an 18th century mission-garrison-trading post complex in southwest Michigan, illustrates recent changes in our understanding of colonial relations.
