Abstract

As the Finger Lakes district of New York has been the subject of only sporadic archaeological inquiry, there are significant voids in our understanding of the indigenous occupation of this region. This paper reports on the Cayuga Lake Archaeology Project, a reconnaissance study designed to fill in some of the gaps in our knowledge about the diversity of hunter-gatherer land use in the Finger Lakes. The Cayuga Lake Archaeology Project focused on a survey of Trumansburg, Taughannock, Glenwood, and Willow Creeks, major subwatersheds of the southwestern quadrant of the Cayuga Lake hydrology system. The study resulted in the discovery of a dozen previously undocumented sites represented by artifacts dating from the Early Archaic to the Late Woodland periods. The recognition of the diversity of sites in these drainages necessitates that archaeologists incorporate previously ignored landscapes when constructing synthetic analyses of indigenous social, political, economic, and spiritual land use.
