Books Fort Michilimackinac 1715-1781 An Archaeological Perspective on the Revolutionary Frontier by Lyle M. Stone
This is a 1974 1st edition HARDBACK of this classic by Lyle Stone. It has 367 pages of mostly photographs. This is the book that you need to identify those 1700's artifacts that you find metal detecting. This book has to crosses to rings, all types of iron from knives, hinges, nails, axes, hoes, brass things like tinklers, thimbles, bracelets, and has an incredible work on glass trade beads by Mary Elizabeth Good. I have identified a lot of things I found on Indian village sites located in Alabama that are just like these recovered in Michigan. The French, English and some Spanish controlled the North American continent during the 1700's. So, it will assist in areas across the U.S.

The book is in very good condition with its dust jacket. The cloth covered book has gilt lettering on the spine and front cover and measures 8 3/4 x 11 1/4 inches. The book contains 273 illustrations and 54 tables. This is a first edition copy. Despite the slight imperfections in the jacket the book is in very good to excellent condition.

This report is an archaeological study of Fort Michilimackinac, an eighteenth-century historic site in Mackinaw City, Emmet County, Michigan. Fort Michilimackinac has been under continuous archaeological and historical investigation since 1959. The archaeological data presented have been obtained as a result of a joint research program between the State of Michigan, Department of Natural Resources, Mackinac Island State Park Commission, and the Michigan State University Museum and Department of Anthropology.

Fort Michilimackinac was nearly 60 per cent excavated between 1959 and 1969 and produced over 500,000 historic and prehistoric artifacts, numerous structures, structural components, and features. The foremost objective of this research was to provide information on the basis of which structures and period settings are reconstructed. The site's stockade and seven structures had been reconstructed as of 1974 as part of a continuing program of site development. Two other objectives of this research have been the preparation of archaeological and historical research reports and the training of students in the methods of field archaeology.
