"This well-conceived collection of papers offers new perspectives on complexities of cultural and temporal variation that are masked by outdated and imprecise definitions of Hopewell and Adena. These fresh perspectives reveal the rich archaeological record and now-apparent cultural diversity in the Middle Ohio Valley during the Woodland Period."--Lynne P. Sullivan, co-author of Archaeology of the Appalachian Highlands
"The book has two main audiences: those who grapple with the problems of archaeological systematics, and general readers interested in Ohio Valley prehistory. It also will work well as one of the required texts in classes or seminars on archaeological theory and methods."
