Prehistoric architecture in the Ohio River Valley has been extensively documented in regards to archaeological remains, but the interpretation of architectural data has generally been either neglected or uncritically presented. The lack of a scholarly literature base suggests that researchers are lacking a framework to guide and evaluate interpretations. In this chapter, the authors present suggestions for basic architectural nomenclature, guidelines for developing a collective middle-range theory, and recommendations for future excavation methodology.

Keywords:   Ohio River Valley, Architectural nomenclature, Middle-range theory, Excavation methodology
