Still Seeking “Hopewell”

(p.334) (p.335) 12 Coda
Hopewell Settlement Patterns, Subsistence, and Symbolic Landscapes

N’omi B. Greber

University Press of Florida

The concluding chapter tries to compose a coda for the chapters and conversations by different scholars contained in this book adding to the view of “Hopewell.” This coda is an ending rather than being a summary which ponders the concepts of theory and data in general terms that are integral to all archaeological research. In particular, this chapter considers where, when, who, and, more important, what distinguishes the “Hopewell” associated with various patterns perceived in the several material and abstract systems portrayed in this volume. The chapter states that to understand better the peoples we call “Hopewell,” we need to deal with basic magnitudes of time, space, and peoples, both cosmological and practical. The chapter defines Hopewell to be a mosaic of balanced, intellectual, and gifted peoples spread through space and time.

Keywords:   coda, Hopewell, summary, time, space, culture, archaeological research, theory, data
