1. Judging from the notes you have made on table page 9. How did the quantity and types of grave goods different between the Schultz, Strichler, and Cohestoga townsites? Is there a discernible pattern to how the composition and use of these grave goods changed over time? From each of the sites there is variety of things that were found. In the early years less items were found due to how it was in an early time. The second site is where a little more culture item were found. The third site also had a cultural practice as well many more weapons were found that were buried with people. Yes, I think there is a pattern to how the composition and the use of these grave goods change over time. This is because of how the Europeans made trade and influenced the people. 2. Using the field notes, photographs, and information in source 14. Describle with eurpean goods replaced native goods in these bural sites. Did such change occur? What factors do you think most affected the likelihood of such substitution: technological superiority physical resemblance , or versaliity? The things that European goods replaced some of the natives good was with knives, kaolin pipes, iron aces were some of the items. The European were able to impact the natives and it showed the natives a different culture they are able to adapt from. The natives have pipes what were shaped like a flower and curved more upward than the Europeans had theirs. I do think that it had affected the natives due to now they have advanced a little ore in their technological superiority. They have their own weapons which is easier to find food and different beads to accessorized. 3. Where in these sources do you see evidence of Indians altering European goods or making use of them in ways different from the original functions of those goods what do such alterations in function or appearance of the goods tell you about the value Indians placed on it. The sources of 11, 13, 7 were evidence of Indians altering European goods. For example the pipes that the natives have used changed and started to use some of the European pipes. The axes were made use of differently. The alterations were to help with the Indians live a better life. 4. The field notes from the Schultz and strickler sites rarely venture a guess as to the sec of the bural site’s occupants, yet the field notes from coestoga town do. How might the archaeologist at Conestoga town have used grave goods to make their guesses in this regard? What does a gender difference in the distribution of grave goods tell you about the impact that contact with European colonist had on gender roles in native society. The cotega site is new than the other ones and are more likely to be able to identify the items and bones. The items that were buried with them may also be helpful as well. The natives seem to be buried with more weapons in the last sites. The weapons such as knives, gun, gunpowder were found near the natives burals. A lot more item were found with the natives then
