9780813011585: Archaeology of Aboriginal Culture Change in the Interior Southeast: Depopulation during the Early Historic Period (Florida Museum of Natural History: Ripley P. Bullen Series)

Members of Hernando de Soto's 1540 march through the interior of the southeastern US, as well as other explorers at that time, described encounters with complex and powerful Indian chiefdoms. Until this work by Marvin T. Smith, first published in 1987, scholars had argued about the role that Europeans played in the disintegration of that Mississippian culture.

Book Description:

“For much of the Southeast, a challenging question has long been what happened to the Indian nations described by members of de Soto’s 1540 expedition?... Smith’s study admirably bridges the history of interior Southeastern Indian nations between the Late Prehistoric and the eighteenth century.” – Alice B. Kehoe, American Indian Quarterly

“[Contributes] not only to a better understanding of the process of disintegration of chiefdoms, but to archaeological method necessary when dealing with the contact period. It argues for the introduction of European diseases as a major cause of the collapse of chiefdoms in the interior... Smith is a major figure among those ‘exploring our forgotten century.’” – Stanley South, American Anthropologist

"This superb archaeological study establishes the chronological controls that finally make it possible to discriminate the dynamic events of depopulation and culture change that occurred during the historical interregnum of the late sixteenth and most of the seventeenth centuries in the Southeast."--Jeffrey P. Brain, Peabody Museum, Harvard University

"Smith has cast the first ray of light into the great black hole of southern history--the century from about 1570 to about 1670. It has long been known that during this century the native population declined sharply and that social geography of the region changed drastically. With admirable doggedness and ingenuity, Smith has reconstructed some details on how these momentous changes occurred in one area."-- Charles Hudson, University of Georgia

Book Description University Press of Florida, United States, 1992. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. Members of Hernando de Soto s 1540 march through the interior of the southeastern US, as well as other explorers at that time, described encounters with complex and powerful Indian chiefdoms. Until this work by Marvin T. Smith, first published in 1987, scholars had argued about the role that Europeans played in the disintegration of that Mississippian culture. Rejecting the notion that the aboriginal nations acculturated to a European pattern, Smith shows that Old World epidemic diseases caused immediate population loss in interior areas. He develops a chronological framework for the period 1540-1670 based on European trade goods, which allows him to date the aboriginal sites and to examine the tempo of demographic shifts with more precision than archaeologists before him commanded. The effects of early European contact - documented with data that include artifacts associated with burial practices, public works, and craft specialisation - travelled farther than the European explorers themselves, as depopulation led to political breakdown and social collapse. One product of this collapse, Smith argues, was the Creek Confederacy of the 18th century, a mix of refugee populations who banded together in defence of alliances against the Europeans and other Indians.
