This chapter synthesizes data about Kentucky’s Early-Middle Woodland domestic landscape using a multiscalar approach. Regarding microsettlement, most domestic structures are small, lightly built, short-term, single-use, circular and curvilinear open ramadas and cabanas with few internal features. Large, heavily constructed, and rebuilt enclosed structures are less common. Regarding intrasite patterning, more intensely occupied, open habitations exhibit multi-purpose activity areas, numerous features, and domestic structures, while less intensely occupied sites lack activity areas and have few tono features and structures. Rockshelter and cave sites show a similar dichotomy, though domestic structures are uncommon at the latter. Regarding intersite patterning, the widespread distribution of domestic sites suggests generalized utilization of the landscape, though there is temporal variation in preferred ecological zones and landforms. Domestic and ritual spaces were physically separate in most drainages. Logistical mobility associated with a collector subsistence strategy best characterizes Early-Middle Woodland settlement across Kentucky.
