Abstract
  • The Gaston site is a multi-occupation Native American site in North Carolina. The occupations span a period over 7000 years. This thesis solely focused on the last three occupations during the Late Woodland Period (500CE - European contact). This zooarchaeological research was done to determine white tailed deer hunting practices of these Native occupants. More directly by examining the age, sex, and biometrics of individuals hunted, to reconstruct not only the individual preferences, but also the strategies in which hunting was carried out.
