The Michigan Anthropology Colloquia Series: "Mississippian Migration and Polity Formation in Central Alabama: Conflict or Communitas?"

Michigan Anthropology Colloquia: Cameron Wesson, Lucy G. Moses Distinguished Professor, Department of Sociology & Anthropology, Lehigh University

"Mississippian cultural practices appear somewhat later in Central Alabama than in other regions of the Southeastern United States. Although evidence of trade and exchange between Late Woodland communities in the region and Mississippian groups is present, it appears as though local Woodland groups were reluctant to fully embrace what archaeologists have defined as “classic" Mississippian culture. This talk centers on archaeological research at several Terminal Woodland sites in Central Alabama, highlighting cases where interactions with Mississippian groups generated archaeological remains that can be interpreted as either evidence of conflict or communitas as initial Mississippian settlement of the region took place."
