Models of human settlement in the St. 23 24 A. Randall, K. Sassaman, Z. Gilmore, M. Blessing, and J. O’Donoughue Johns River basin have emphasized the apparent relationship between the onset of riverine exploitation and a near-modern hydrological regime (Miller 1998). In this model, Paleoindian and Early Archaic populations would be restricted to wellwatered locations such as first-magnitude springs (Thulman 2009). The middle Holocene increase in surface water elevation, which was made possible in part by higher flow from springs connected to the Floridan aquifer, aided the development of lakes, sloughs, and wetlands.

Johns basin. Heaps and Histories We began this discussion by arguing that shell mounds should not be treated as interchangeable isolates and that Archaic communities were neither local nor ahistorical in their outlook. On a practical level, this requires archaeologists to adopt a broader landscape perspective. In suggesting that shell mounds should be decentered, however, we are not simply arguing for a shift from looking at trees to looking at forests. As seen at Silver Glen Springs, Archaic communities had complex relationships with shellfish that preclude interpreting shell mounds as incidental.

Subsurface testing there has produced mixed results, mostly due to extensive shell mining. However, there is abundant evidence that shell was laid down at the northeast point of the mound during the Orange period, perhaps upon a preexisting Mount Taylor period shell ridge. Construction of the south ridge was also begun during the Orange period, a process that may have involved clear-cutting and preparing the ground surface before shell deposition (Sassaman, Gilmore, and Randall 2011). In addition to shell, many Orange period fiber-tempered vessels were deposited in the watershed.
