Even at this early stage of the project, we must extend our heartfelt thanks to several people: Bennie Keel; Bob and Julie Cathey, Joe Worley, Will Warren, and other local residents; Wayne Carson and the Canton Area Historical Museum; Scott Ashcraft; and John Wright and Rita Pelczar. With continued support from and collaborations with these and other individuals, we hope to generate new knowledge about the history of western North Carolina that will be of interest to the local community in addition to archaeologists.
AboutGCAP is a collaborative research project designed to learn more about unprecedented monument construction and long distance social interaction in the Appalachian Summit during the Middle Woodland Period (ca. 300 BC - AD 700). On this blog, we discuss our ongoing research on the Garden Creek site in Canton, NC, which is funded by the James B. Griffin Fellowship and the Arts of Citizenship Graduate Student Fellowship in Public Scholarship.
