Abstract:

This report details the results of an archeological data recovery project at Darrow, Ascension Parish, Louisiana (16AN54). This project conducted in preparation for levee enlargement and concrete slope paving on the left bank of the Mississippi River fronting Darrow. The project will impact parts of the pre-1932 occupation of Darrow. Data recovery intended to obtain primarily artifactual data from the original town deposits with which to examine questions of archeological analysis methods in a Louisiana river town, inter and extra regional trade, comparisons with other river towns in other regions, plantation versus urban material cultural deposits and early rural versus later urban diet. Five areas were opened with a backhoe exposing buried historic deposits, four of which were widened and then sampled with 18, threefoot square, excavation units. A total of 3,075 square feet was thus exposed. A variety of analysis techniques were used to aid in dating and interpreting the site. 0ver 130 liters of soil were floated and water screened, and the material was analysed by a zooarcheologist and ethnobotanist. Conclusions about the town and about the practice of archeology in urban settings were drawn and the project area released for construction.
