He offers a succinct, yet thorough, overview of the Mississippian Period and then lengthy treatments of some select sites. As a guide, it is magnificent; but I predict the book will also have wide appeal in undergraduate courses and as a reference for many scholars and others interested in the precontact Southeast. Eric Bowne has produced an excellent guide to Mississippian archaeological parks in the eastern United States.
The book places each site in context, while discussing what can be seen today.
This book would be the basis for a great road trip! This guide is primarily intended for people who want to visit archaeological sites and museums where they can see the physical remains, scholarly interpretations, and artistic representations of Mississippian chiefdoms. In clear language and using well-chosen drawings, photographs, and artists' representations, Bowne gives summary descriptions of the more important Mississippian sites, with histories of the research that has been done on them, and with brief narrative accounts of our present understanding of the historical experience of the chiefdoms to which they belonged.
For laymen, this book will be a treasured introduction and guidebook to the Ancient South. For undergraduates, it will be a handy introduction to what is by now a vast archaeological and historical literature.
And for adventurous high school students, it will open doors of understanding to an unsuspected world. ERIC E. Welcome to the new UGA Press website! Title Details Pages: Trim size: Add to. Get ebook.
