Movement as Intimate Encounter: Local Connectivity in Past Landscapes
Authors: Meghan Howey
Archaeologists have increasingly harnessed the power of geospatial techniques in the analysis of past movement across large spatial scales. Here, I explore how these techniques can also help advance understandings of movement at smaller scales, exploring local connectivity as means of modeling aspects of more intimate experiences of place. I offer a case study of local social geographies among Late Precontact (ca. AD 1200-1600) communities in an inland lake landscape in northern Michigan.
