Archaeological. ecological and experimental studies of the mound builders of the U.S. Midwest and Southeast. The huge earthworks and mounds scattered through the eastern half of the United States prompted people in the nineteenth century to speculate that a lost civilization had preceded the Indians then living among the mounds. Though we've known for some time that the ancestors of those Indians actually built the mounds, archaeologists are still exploring their contents for a better understanding of their builders. Includes both the Hopewell (100 BC- 300 AD) and Mississippian (700-1600 AD) prehistoric American cultures, and discusses social organization in such large communities as Cahokia in East St. Louis.
