Synopsis: Spectacular discoveries at the Etowah site in Georgia changed the American perspective of the artistic achievements of prehistoric Native Americans. These papers, originally published in 1932, offer an understanding of American archaeology and the cultural heritage of prehistoric Native America.

Book Description:

"The descriptive material [in the book] is priceless. . . . Any archaeologist who works on Mississippian cultures will want it."—Vin Steponaitis, University of North Carolina

Spectacular discoveries at Mound C at the Etowah site in Georgia, the result of excavations from 1925 to 1928, changed the American perspective of the artistic achievements of prehistoric Native Americans in the eastern United States. These discoveries, in a mound that had supposedly already been excavated under the sponsorship of the Smithsonian Institution in 1883, made up the final major field expedition of Warren King Moorehead, a legendary figure in American archaeology.
 The papers, written in the first person and originally published in 1932, at the end of what is considered the humanistic "golden age" of American anthropology, today offer a fresh understanding of the history of American archaeology and of the cultural heritage of prehistoric Native America.
 The Etowah site was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1965.

Warren King Moorehead (1866-1939) was known during his time as the dean of American archaeology. He was a member of the field staff for Indian exhibits at the Chicago World’s Fair of 1893 and was the first curator of the Ohio Historical Society. At the time of his Etowah research he was director of the Robert S. Peabody Museum of Archaeology at Phillips Academy in Andover.
