9780126662801: Ceramics, Chronology and Community Patterns: An Archaeological Study at Moundville (Studies in Archaeology) (Studies in Archaeology)

Moundville, located on the Black Warrior River in west-central Alabama, is one of the best known and most intensively studied archaeological sites in North America. Yet, in spite of all these investigations, many aspects of the site's internal chronology remained unknown until the original 1983 publication of this volume. The author embarked on a detailed study of Moundville ceramics housed in museums and collections, and hammered out a new chronology for Moundville.This volume is a clearly written description of the analytical procedures employed on these ceramic samples and the new chronology this study revealed. Using the refined techniques outlined in this volume, it was possible for the author to trace changes in community patterns, which in turn shed light on Moundville's internal development and its place among North America's ancient cultures.

Book Description Emerald Group Publishing Limited, United States, 1983. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 234 x 190 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. This book should prove useful to scholars in a variety of ways, for it deals with culture-historical, methodological, and evolutionary issues from shedding light on Moundville s development. In addressing matters of culture history, the study presents a detailed and well documented Mississippian chronology. It systemises and describes the late prehistoric ceramics from an important site, providing a benchmark that can be used in future studies of trade and stylistic interaction. And, perhaps even more importantly, it synthesizes the available information on Moundville s development, taking into account settlement, subsistence, and mortuary evidence.
