Book Description

January 30, 1990 0817305521 978-0817305529

This book deals with the prehistory of the region encompassed by the present state of Alabama and spans a period of some 11,000 years—from 9000 B.C. and the earliest documented appearance of human beings in the area to A.D. 1750, when the early European settlements were well established. Only within the last five decades have remains of these prehistoric peoples been scientifically investigated.

This volume is the product of intensive archaeological investigations in Alabama by scores of amateur and professional researchers. It represents no end product but rather is an initial step in our ongoing study of Alabama's prehistoric past. The extent of current industrial development and highway construction within Alabama and the damming of more and more rivers and streams underscore the necessity that an unprecedented effort be made to preserve the traces of prehistoric human beings that are destroyed every day by our own progress.

Editorial Reviews


"The definitive study of Alabama prehistory. . . . The volume provides a readable and authoritative survey of over 12,000 years of state prehistory. On the one hand it will be essential to the professional and the student. On the other, laypersons with a less structured interest in the prehistoric past will find it an engrossing record of archaeological discovery."

"Individuals interested in the archaeology of Alabama will find Walthall's Prehistoric Indians of the Southeast the definitive overview. This volume describes the history of archaeology in the state, natural environment, and the succession of aboriginal artifact assemblages associated with the various Indian cultures from as early as 10,000 B.C. until European contact."
Florida Historical Quarterly
