Maps. Charts. 4to, black comb-bound, illustrated pale blue card covers “This thesis presents a functionalanalysis of the ceramics and glass remains excavated from two pre-expulsio n (circa 1680 to 1755) Acadian houses at Belleisle (BeDi-2), Annapolis County, Nova Scotia. The history of each artifact variety is traced, including manufacturing techniques, and distribution routes from the factories to theAcadian houses where the artifacts were used and discarded. The artifacts analysed are quantified and compared with similar information from other contemporaneous, domestic sites in eastern North America and France. Status differences are discussed. As a whole, the place of Acadian households in international, national and local markets is examined. becomes evident that the expanding, eighteenth century Acadian population at Belleisle benefited from the availability of a multitude of goods. This allowed them to developa material life rather different from those of other Acadians, or the cont emporaneous residents of the St. Lawrence Valley and New England. The ceramics and glass indicate that the Belleisle Acadians led a comfortable life.”(Abstract). Rubbed, else very good. 45.00
