This article presents a general historic overview of Hog Island, 1585-1711. Laughton discusses the island’s 16th century inhabitants, the Neusiok, and associated archaeological sites and historic records. While several historic shell mounds have been destroyed, other archaeological evidence continues to offer insight into the past. The historic record, on the other hand, details very little about Neusiok lifeways or political structure.
