This chapter discusses site distribution and population trends in the Black Warrior Valley over time, specifically during the Late Woodland and Mississippi periods. Survey data and Geographic Information Systems analyses are used to demonstrate the environmental and social variables that affected settlement locations. Site densities and ceramic data are used to determine relative measures of population density over time. The results indicate that settlement landscapes were driven by a relationship between communities, mounds, and environmental features and that land use was relatively consistent through time, even as populations fluctuated.

Keywords:   settlement patterns, environment, mounds, ceramics, farmsteads, population
