Mississippian Towns and Sacred Spaces: Searching for an Architectual Grammar
Mississippian Towns and Sacred Spaces: Searching for an Architectual Grammar
by R. Barry Lewis, Charles B. Stout
Card catalog description: Architecture is the most visible physical manifestation of human culture. The built environment envelops our lives and projects our distinctive regional and ethnic identities to the world around us. Archaeology and architecture find common theoretical ground in their perspectives on the homes, spaces, and communities that people create for themselves. In this volume, prominent archaeologists examine the architectural design spaces of Mississippian towns and mound centers of the eastern United States. The diverse Mississippian societies, which existed between A.D. 900 and 1700, created some of the largest and most complex Native American archaeological sites in the United States. The dominant architectural feature shared by these communities was one or more large plazas, each of which was often flanked by buildings set on platform mounds.

The Prehistory of Missouri
by Michael J. O'Brien, W. Raymond Wood
The state of Missouri is so rich in Native American history that you can still go on productive arrowhead hunts. Michael J. O'Brien and W. Raymond Wood cover the earliest chartable periods in Missouri history, beginning about 9250 B.C. and continuing through the late Mississippian period. Color photographs of artifacts accompany the text, which expertly negotiates the territory between technical jargon and clear descriptions that explain to the layperson what types of artifacts can be found under which conditions, how the earliest Mississippians lived, what they might have looked like, and what traceable signs--cherts, arrowheads, fire pits--they left behind.

From Quarry to Cornfield: The Political Economy of Mississippian Hoe Production
From Quarry to Cornfield: The Political Economy of Mississippian Hoe Production
by Charles R. Cobb
From Quarry to Cornfield provides an innovative model for examining the technology of hoe production and its contribution to the agriculture of Mississippian communities.

Lithic specialist Charles Cobb examines the political economy in Mississippian communities through a case study of raw material procurement and hoe production and usage at the Mill Creek site on Dillow Ridge in southwest Illinois. Cobb outlines the day-to-day activities in a Mississippian chiefdom village that flourished from about A.D. 1250 to 1500. In so doing, he provides a fascinating window into the specialized tasks of a variety of "day laborers" whose contribution to the community rested on their production of stone hoes necessary in the task of feeding the village. Overlooked in most previous studies, the skills and creativity of the makers of the hoes used in village farming provide a basis for broader analysis of the technology of hoe use in Mississippian times.

Although Cobb's work focuses on Mill Creek, his findings at this site are representative of the agricultural practices of Mississippian communities throughout the eastern United States. The theoretical underpinnings of Cobb's study make a clear case for a reexamination of the accepted definition of chiefdom, the mobilization of surplus labor, and issues of power, history, and agency in Mississippian times. In a well-crafted piece of writing, Cobb distinguishes himself as one of the leaders in the study of lithic technology. From Quarry to Cornfield will find a well-deserved place in the ongoing discussions of power and production in the Mississippian political economy.
