The Powhatan Landscape
The St. Mary’s College of Maryland Anthropology Department will host Professor Martin Gallivan, College of William & Mary, for the lecture “The Powhatan Landscape” on Wednesday, Nov. 1 at 4:15 p.m. in Cole Cinema, Campus Center. The event is free of charge and open to the public.

The presentation will offer a new perspective on Chesapeake history by tracing the Native past from the arrival of Algonquian forager-fishers to the rise of the Powhatan chiefdom.  The goal will be to shift the frame of reference from English accounts of colonial events toward a longer narrative of Algonquians’ construction of places, communities, and connections in between.  The archaeological record indicates that scholars’ attentiveness to the English arrival in the Chesapeake has concealed a deeper, indigenous past in Tsenacomacoh, the Algonquian term for Tidewater Virginia.
