Editorial Reviews


"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collection of papers offers new perspectives on complexities of cultural and temporal variation that are masked by outdated and imprecise definitions of Hopewell and Adena.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."
—The Register of the Kentucky Historical Society

Format: Paperback
The Amazon "Book Description" from the book jacket is a fair account of the book. But what exactly is in it?
The papers were originally presented at the 48th Annual meeting of the Midwest Archaeological Conference in Columbus, Ohio held in October 2002 and the 68th Annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology in Milwaukee, Wis., held in April 2003

The 15 papers in the Contents are:
-Woodland Taxonomy in the Middle Ohio valley:a historical overview
-Adena and Hopewell in the Middle Ohio valley:To be or not to be/
-Archaeology at the Edges of Time and Space: Working across and between Woodland period taxonomic units in Central Ohio
-The Bullock site: A forgotten mound in Woodford County, Kentucky
-Walker_Noe: An early early middle Woodland Adena mound in Central Kentucky
-Middle Woodland Ritualism in the Central Bluegrass: Evidence from the Amburgey site, Montgomery County, Kentucky
-Adena: rest in peace?
-Reflections on taxonomic practice
-learning from the Past: The History of Ohio Hopewell taxonomy and it's Implications for Archaeological practice
-Rethinking the Code complex, a Post Hopewellian Archaeological unit in Central Ohio
-The Many Messages of Death: Mortuary practices in the Ohio valley and Northeast
-taxonomic homogeneity and Cultural Divergence in the Midcontinent
-Valley View: Hopewell taxonomy in the Middle Ohio region
-Building Woodland Archaeological units in the Kanawha River Basin, West Virginia
-Some comments on Woodland taxonomy in the Middle Ohio valley

This is a book for graduate students or archaeologists working in the subject. Better choices for others are:
G Milner "The Moundbuilders: ancient peoples of eastern North America" 2005 or
Bradley T Lepper "Ohio Archaeology:An Illustrated Chronicle of Ohio's ancient Indian Cultures" 2005
