La Harpe's post : a tale of French-Wichita contact on the eastern plains by George H Odell( )

9 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 1,556 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This contribution to contact period studies points to the Lasley Vore site in modern Oklahoma, 13 miles south of Tulsa along the Arkansas River, as the most likely first meeting place of Plains Indians and Europeans more than 300 years ago. Odell presents a full account of the presumed location of the Tawakoni village visited by Jean-Baptiste Benard, Sieur de la Harpe about 1718, as revealed through the analysis of excavated materials by nine specialist collaborators. In a well-written narrative report, employing careful study and innovative analysis supported by appendixes containing the excavation data, Odell combines documentary history and archaeological evidence to pinpoint the probable site of the first European contact with North American Plains Indians."--Jacket
Contemporary lithic analysis in the Southeast : problems, solutions, and interpretations by Philip J Carr( )

Stone tools : theoretical insights into human prehistory by George H Odell( Book )

14 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 419 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publisher Description (unedited publisher data) Lithic analysts have been criticized for being atheoretical in their approach, or at least for not contributing to building archaeological theory. This volume redresses that balance. In Stone Tools, renowned lithic analysts employ explicitly theoretical constructs to explore the archaeological record and use the lithic database to establish its points. Chapters discuss curation, design theory, replacement of stone with metal, piece refitting, and projectile point style

17 editions published between 2003 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 286 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This practical volume does not intend to replace a mentor, but acts as a reality accessible guide to the basic tools of lithic analysis that a researcher can consult. Some focuses of the manual include: history of stone tool research, procurement, manufacture, and function; and assemblage variability." "This manual also includes text boxes, bringing basic terms and information to the attention of the researcher. Lithic Analysis will be an incomparable source for academic archaeologists, cultural resource, and heritage management archaeologists, government heritage agencies and upper-level undergraduate and graduate students of archaeology focused on the prehistoric period."--Jacket

This major contribution to contact period studies points to the Lasley Vore site in modern Oklahoma as the most likely first meeting place of Plains Indians and Europeans more than 300 years ago.
