Between 1999 and 2001, approximately 84,000 faunal specimens from seven excavated sites along the Roanoke River Basin in North Carolina and Virginia were cataloged and analyzed. The purpose of the study was to provide information to U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to develop fishery management plans and restoration plans for endangered species through studying this historic distribution and abundance of fish and other animals in the basin.
Foodways studies can address numerous topics such as ritual, feasting, gender, status, and socioeconomic and political change. Work done on the faunal and botanical remains from the Coweeta Creek site in Macon County aid in understanding the subsistence trends of the 17th century Cherokee.
