Notes

Abstract:
In this thesis, I examine a set of historic iron and copper cauldrons from an 18th century Loyalist shipwreck off the coast of St. Augustine, in hopes of contributing to a narrative about a people largely forgotten by popular history. The examination of these cauldrons offers an entryway for the analysis and interpretation of Loyalist intentions. The cauldrons on the Storm site were part of a colonial, capitalistic society – as key items in an intermediary and inconclusive time for a refugee population. This allows us to view the cauldrons as both economic and social factors in Loyalist lifestyles; on one end, as objects that defined a sort of comfort and familiarity in the process of creating a home, and on the other, as objects of profitability. Examining the cauldrons from Storm, as well as the other artifacts present, can give a closer look at this Loyalist ship, and illuminate an important piece of forgotten colonial-era history.
