Summary:
Through intensive analysis of use/wear indicators the tool kit of the little known Belle Glade culture of South Florida has been reconstructed. From this, we recognize a highly sophisticated technology which can be divided into specialized, generalized and ceremonial artifacts. All of these were utilized either directly or in support of Hopewellian ceremonialism. This, plus a preliminary analysis of the site plan indicates that one area of the site was the residence of the ceremonial practitioner, a second was a charnel house, while a third was the village area where craftsmen who fashioned ceremonial objects lived with their families.
