Hemphill is the name of a representational art style which is local to the Moundville region and seen in a variety of media. This paper examines the distribution of Hemphill-style artifacts in Moundville burials, and focuses on four distinct genres: engraved pottery, stone palettes, stone pendants, and copper gorgets. The distributions of Hemphill-style pottery and stone pendants show little patterning with respect to age and sex. Copper gorgets seem to be associated predominantly with males, but are not restricted by age. Stone palettes are found predominantly with adult males, with grave assemblages that are richer than usual. The four Hemphill genres seem to mark different socio-religious identities that are not exclusively elite.
