A Protohistorical Ode to a Prehistoric Huron Pot from Illinois

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The Hoxie Farm site, located in south suburban Chicago, is a massive Fischer and Huber Phase site that has been the subject of investigations since the early twentieth century (Bluhm et al. 1990; Jackson 2003, 2008). The most recent of these, conducted by the Illinois State Archaeological Survey (ISAS) as part of highway development, encountered nearly 2,400 features from two principal areas/components of the site. The largest and most extensive, known as the Main Occupation Area, is composed of Late Fisher phase and Huber phase remains spanning the fourteenth through the sixteenth centuries. A temporally and spatially discrete area in the southeast portion of the site produced a shorter-term Late Fisher phase fortified village.
