The three narratives of volume II are designed to give the reader the feeling of being a silent partner to the day to day activities of the period. Both men & women were centered in three separate endeavors, the acquisition of food, shelter, and personal safety of themselves and their families. The lives of Paleo, Woodland Archaic, and Late Woodland people were similar and yet different from each of the other two phases. The similarities of hunting were uniform across the three, shelter was a constant search, and safety was also a uniform issue. It is thru the actions that lend the technology to the task that was the defining factor in all three societies. As humans progress, they learn new skills and technologies to match the environment in each situation. Old ideas are replaced or modified, new technologies are refined and sometimes reinvented. A new perspective into what it meant to be “human” may be seen in the mortuary art & the means people dealt with their dead.

About the Author:

My working life is in a number of venues, mechanical design, pharmaceutical development, petro-chemicals, Aero Space, Jet engine engineering in military, commercial, industrial applications, and in architectural / structural design. This background has given me the ability to “reverse-engineer” artifacts into what they once were before time had its way with them. “Archaic Arts” has presented the market with hundreds of accurate reproductions, for over nineteen years, museums, educational programs, outreach, state & national parks, artists, film studios, and historic re enactors have made use of reproductions from my shop. Living history has seen a boom-time in new technologies in the video venue but some things are meant only to be seen and handled in real life pieces of our history. The demand has risen for quality reproductions to take the place of museum originals for insurance expenses; this has created the demand for my works and that of others in this new market. The preservation of our working history is a close held passion.
