Investigations at three small sites in Moundville’s rural hinterland (Gerald Wiggins, Grady Bobo, and Gilliam) indicate that these settlements were not only devoted to food production. Rather, they also were places where the rural populace took part in collective activities (e.g., feasting and ritual) and produced specialized goods (e.g., feather work). Other possible activities seen at these sites included the making and consumption of fineware ceramics.
