Cahokia: Domination and Ideology in the Mississippian World Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

About one thousand years ago, Native Americans built hundreds of earthen platform mounds, plazas, residential areas, and other types of monuments in the vicinity of present-day St. Louis. This sprawling complex, known to archaeologists as Cahokia, was the dominant cultural, ceremonial, and trade center north of Mexico for centuries. This stimulating collection of essays casts new light on the remarkable accomplishments of Cahokia.

Synopsis:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 291-345) and index.
