The Emergence of the Moundbuilders · The Archaeology of Tribal Societies in Southeastern Ohio
Edited by Elliot M. Abrams and AnnCorinne Freter

Native American societies, often viewed as unchanging, in fact experienced a rich process of cultural innovation in the millennia prior to recorded history. Societies of the Hocking River Valley in southeastern Ohio, part of the Ohio River Valley, created a tribal organization beginning about 2000 bc.

“This work’s anthropological perspective goes beyond more traditional treatments of prehistory. The focus on the tribal level of socio-political organization is particularly noteworthy. The result is an updated and very useful treatment of Hocking Valley prehistory.”
