(p.138) 9 The Woodland Period Cultural Landscape of the Leake Site Complex
Early and Middle Woodland Landscapes of the Southeast

University Press of Florida

Situated at the interface between the Southeast and Midwest regions, the Leake site is a large congregation site at which mounds and an arc-shaped ditch enclosure were constructed in the floodplain of the Etowah River. Across the river on a low mountain overlooking the Leake site are a stone burial mound, a hilltop stone enclosure, and a large cavern. These interrelated Middle Woodland Hopewellian sites made up a ceremonial landscape referred to as the Leake Complex. This chapter details the selected features of this landscape, and discusses the implications for issues such as interaction, feasting, community, and the sacred/secular dichotomy.
