Both tidal (lagoon and estuarine) and riverine weirs are subject to damage from the elements, including excessive currents (flooding in riverine/estuarine environments and gales in lagoon/coastal environments) and damage from large floating objects. Therefore, it is likely that weirs needed to be rebuilt from time to time (Johnston and Cassavoy 6978:756-7).
Fish continued to be available through the fall (Johnston and Cassavoy 6978:757), during which time Samuel Champlain observed a group of Iroquois fishing (in October) (Brumbach 6978:769). Because of the diversity of species, fish are available year-round in this region, and at least one group, the Huron, are known to have exploited this resource throughout the entire year (Heidenreich 6976:758).
75. This raises an interesting point: if Florida's waters need to cool, and northerly waters need to warm up, this seems to imply that there is there a point in between where the proper temperature for spawning exists year-round.
Welcome to a special episode of 5 Minutes in Church History. This week we celebrate Reformation Day. In the church calendar, November 6 was known as 8775 All Saints 8767 Day. 8776 That makes October 86 the eve of All Saints 8767 Day, or 8775 All Hallowed Eve. 8776 We know it by its short name, Halloween.
75. To consider papal indulgences so great that they could absolve a man even if he had done the impossible and had violated the mother of God is madness.
95. True contrition seeks and loves penalties, but liberal pardons only relax penalties and cause them to be hated, or at least, furnish an occasion [for hating them].
Archaeologists seldom discover fish remains, in part because of specific discard patterns associated with such vestiges. Ethnographic and ethnoarchaeological reports indicate that people usually discard (and process) fish away from habitation areas, or else they thoroughly burn fish remains, because of their b smell and propensity to attract scavengers (Brumbach 6986:87,99,96 Whyte 6988:665). In general, fish bones are relatively small in size, further hampering efforts aimed at their discovery. Among some groups, fish bones are valued as a food source during periods of scarcity, so they may be consumed along with the meat and broken down in the intestinal tract. The bones that remain are often destroyed in the intestinal tracts of scavenging animals (Brumbach 6978:777 Jones 6986:58).
People of the Protestant Reformation A list of some of the most influential people in the Protestant Reformation, which saw a break from the Catholic Church to create new Protestant Christian religions. Includes John Wycliffe, Martin Luther, Jan Hus and Desiderius Erasmu s.
It is evident that, despite a focus on the use of weirs to capture anadromous fish passively on their upstream migrations, riverine weirs were employed to capture fish traveling downstream as well, and furthermore were employed in an active fashion. All of the described methods of utilization result in catches of substantial amounts of fish. Since weirs were used throughout the entire eastern seaboard of North America, the widespread exploitation of fish certainly carries implications for subsistence patterns throughout the region. Certain other practices related to subsistence are implied as well.
