Early and Middle Woodland Landscapes of the Southeast

James A. Brown

University Press of Florida

This chapter considers the papers in this volume in their wider historical and cultural context, particularly relative to Hopewell material culture and interaction and proposes new directions for research on these issues. Specifically, several aspects of Eastern Woodlands cosmology are brought to bear on the landscape issues discussed in the preceding chapters, including the concept of the immanent universe, significant orientations and associations of the built environment, world renewal and centering, and material and ideological exchange. The concern of many chapters with Woodland religion is recognized as an essential complement to previous generations of research on this period in the Southeast.

Keywords:   cosmovision, Hopewell, monuments, exchange, settlement, interaction, religion
