Description for Bookstore
"This is the first volume in a decade to address the Woodland period in the Southeast. The research is fresh and reports new information and interpretations gleaned from a variety of sources-new excavations, geophysics, grey literature, older collections-and covers a range of studies from single sites to specific archaeological complexes to interactions among complexes." -Lynne P. Sullivan, coeditor of Mississippian Mortuary Practices "This volume fills an important gap in Southeast archaeology, the Early and Middle Woodland periods. It contains the best that the current generation of archaeologists has to offer, set in the context of the broader landscape of regional archaeology."-Dean R. Snow, author of Archaeology of Native North America The Early and Middle Woodland periods (1000 BCE500 CE) were remarkable for their level of culture contact and interaction in pre-Columbian North America. This volume, featuring case studies from Georgia, Florida, North Carolina, Mississippi, Kentucky, Alabama, and Tennessee, sheds new light on the various approaches to the study of the dynamic and complex social landscapes of these eras. Essays by well-known and up-and-coming scholars incorporate empirical data with social organizational concepts such as ritual, cultural, and social places, highlighting the variability and common themes in the relationships between people, landscapes, and the built environment that characterize this period of North American native life.
