Of caves and shell mounds by Kenneth Charles Carstens( file )
8 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 1,591 libraries worldwide
Ancient human groups in the Eastern Woodlands of North America were long viewed as homogeneous and stable hunter-gatherers, changing little until the late prehistoric period when Mesoamerican influences were thought to have stimulated important economic and social developments. The authors in this volume offer new, contrary evidence to dispute this earlier assumption, and their studies demonstrate the vigor and complexity of prehistoric peoples in the North American Midwest and Midsouth. These peoples gathered at favored places along midcontinental streams to harvest mussels and other wild fo

Plants from the Past is a fascinating, comprehensive record of the work of two dedicated plant scientists who were instrumental in the establishment of archaeobotany and paleoethnobotany as vigorous subdisciplines within American archaeology. Hugh Carson Cutler and Leonard Watson Blake worked together for many decades at the Missouri Botanical Garden in St. Louis, identifying and interpreting plant remains from archaeological sites all over North America.

Cave archaeology of the eastern woodlands : essays in honor of Patty Jo Watson ( Book )
2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 156 libraries worldwide
"Cave Archaeology of the Eastern Woodlands, edited by David H. Dye, explores how prehistoric and historic peoples utilized caves as a means to further their economic growth and represent cultural values within their societies. The essays range in topics from early gypsum mining to rare American Indian cave art, from historic saltpeter extraction to current archaeobotanical and paleofecal research. Dye and the contributors contend that studies of deep zone caves yield multiple insights into the values, beliefs, and cultural lifeways of ancient and historic peoples." "In addition to presenting new research in the field, contributors also place particular emphasis on Dr. Patty Jo Watson's influential cave research and how it has molded their own work. The essays convey a sense of wonder at the unique and sometimes harrowing world of caves, and readers will get a sense of why Native Americans regarded the Underworld or Beneathworld as a supernatural realm to be tread upon with great respect and caution."--Jacket

This collection consists of twenty-three documents, all in English, including the complete text of Late Archaic components at Modoc Rock Shelter, Randolph County, Illinois. The region discussed is the eastern United States. The focal (absolute) time period is 6000 B.P. - 3000 B.P., although the Late Archaic continues to 2500 B.P. in some parts of the Midwest. No single document gives a comprehensive overview of the Late Archaic. Reid discusses the Nebo Hill site, a Late Archaic site with pottery. Another important site for the Late Archaic is Modoc Rock Shelter. Ahler describes the 1987 excavations and findings from stratum 8E, and provides a summary of the Late Archaic findings. Thorson describes the faunal remains, King the floral remains, and Bade the skeletal remains. Schuldenrein provides an overview of geoarchaeology in southeast United States for the Mid-Holocene, which is why it covers the period of 8000B.P.-3000 B.P. Watts describes the flora for the Mid-Holocene southeast covering the time period 8500 B.P.-2500 B.P. Lastly, Gibson discusses the culture and site of Poverty Point. Phillips wrote an introduction to a book on the Archaic in the Midwest; it reviews the Archaic from 10,000 B.P.-2500 B.P. Brown also summarizes the Archaic in the Midwest for the time period of 10,000 B.P.-3000 B.P. Kay describes the settlement system in the Pomme de Terre River valley in Missouri. Phillips looks at the Labras Lake site outside of St. Louis. Emerson excavated at two sites in the American Bottom. The Archaic lasted a little longer there and the sites date to 3450 B.P.-2450 B.P. Fortier conducted large scale excavations at the Go-Kart North site. Marquardt describes excavations at shell mounds (mostly the Carlston Annis site) along the Green River in Kentucky. The latest documents discuss the Terminal Archaic for the Mid-Atlantic region. Truncer examines how Perkiomen points were used with experimental data and archaeological specimens, and Kraft interprets the uses of Perkiomen points with data from sites in the Upper Delaware River Valley. Pfeiffer discusses sites mainly around the mouth of the Connecticut River dating from 5000 B.P.-2700 B.P., including problems related to radiocarbon dating. Lastly, Cresson examines broadspears to understand their diversity
