Ford Chairs Session at Conference on Historical and Underwater Archaeology

Dr. Ben Ford of the Department of Anthropology chaired a session entitled “Coastal Communities and Cultural Landscapes” at the 2010 Conference on Historical and Underwater Archaeology. Ford also presented a paper as part of the session.

The session, part of a four-day conference in Jacksonville, Fla., included papers on ship graveyards, coastal trade, coastal fortifications, cultural landscapes, and maritime heritage. Ford’s contribution, “Lake and Land during the American Revolution: Integrated Terrestrial and Underwater Archaeology of Carleton Island, Lake Ontario,” dealt with the British use of Carleton Island as a fort and shipyard to control Lake Ontario and much of the American interior.
