Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The article discusses the possibility that the Cadotte archaeological site, located on Wisconsin's Madeline Island, was historically used as a trading outpost for Ontario Odawa and Algonquin traders. The author argues that the site was inhabited fifty years earlier than other archaeologists have speculated. Analyses of the site's ceramic assemblage, potsherds, and pottery are provided as evidence for this notion. The probable influence of Ontario Wendat pottery traditions on Algonquin pottery is explained.
