The southeastern United States has one of the richest records of early human settlement of any area of North America. This book provides the first state-by-state summary of Paleoindian and Early Archaic research from the region, together with an appraisal of models developed to interp... ret the data. It summarizes what we know of the peoples who lived in the Southeast more than 8,000 years ago-when giant ice sheets covered the northern part of the continent, and such mammals as elephants, saber-toothed tigers, and ground sloths roamed the landscape. Extensively illustrated, this benchmark collection of essays on the state of Paleoindian and Early Archaic research in the Southeast will guide future studies on the subject of the region's first inhabitants for years to come.Divided in three parts, the volume includes:Part I: Modeling Paleoindian and Early Archaic Lifeways in the SoutheastEnvironmental and Chronological Considerations, David G.
