This book addresses some important questions related to the builders of artworks in Middle Ohio Valley by examining the cultural and social nature of the well-known Ohio Hopewell monumental earthworks. Chapters examine the purpose, meaning, and role of earthworks and similar artifacts, considering how they may have reflected political, social, and practical ecological organization. The open conversations and debates presented in this book regarding divergent archaeological practices provides an opportunity for the assessment of various approaches to studying these ancient communities.
