Abstract: Kiskiak Online Exhibit

For my Monroe Project, I intend to analyze artifacts from a Powhatan archaeological site called Kiskiak, located in York County, Virginia, with the goal of creating an online exhibit or website about the site. I would like to explore Powhatan daily life and subsistence patterns both pre- and post-European contact, all while asking where and how Powhatans had significant effects on their environment. Additionally, I will track the rise and fall of the Powhatan Chiefdom by returning to its archaeological remains for historiographic purposes. I hope to present this information in a way that will be captivating, relatable, and educational to average citizens across the Tidewater area.
