Type of Degreethesis
MetadataShow full item record
Excavations at 1EE89, the Historic Creek town of Hickory Ground identified an extensive Proto-Historic occupation. This occupation is identified by evidence of 30 domestic structures and one public structure. The majority of the cultural material from this occupation consisted of ceramics recovered from these domestic structures. Excavations recovered ceramics representing two distinct cultural traditions. This evidence demonstrated a lack of cultural homogeneity for the Proto-Historic occupation, containing elements of Lamar and Moundville traditions. It is the goal of this research to provide relevant information not only to the cultural and temporal identity of this site, but also to add to the Proto-Historic research in the region.
