Abstract

Previous studies have looked at reconstructing social and political systems in the New York. Included among these were studies in the adjacent Mohawk and Susquehanna valleys which show important differences in lifeways. Unfortunately, few studies focused on the Schoharie Valley of New York. By looking at the development over time, I reconstruct past lifeways in the Schoharie Valley of New York. I look at how such materials influenced the settlement and social complexity in the region by looking at settlement systems, subsistence (floral and faunal remains), and interaction over time.
