We address Early and Middle Woodland landscape use on the Upper Cumberland Plateau (UCP) of Tennessee using a landscape approach to prehistory. We believe that ways of doing things on the plateau during this time were different because of the unique character of this upland landscape, namely the volume and density of rock shelters and caves. Thus, the UCP is an appropriate unit of analysis in a landscape approach. Further, we demonstrate that Early and Middle Woodland peoples on the UCP engaged in a variety of activities across all seasons of the year. In sum, the myriad rock shelters of the UCP functioned in many respects for Woodland peoples not simply short-term but special purpose hunting camps.
