Authority, Autonomy, and the Archaeology of a Mississippian Community

Chapter 2 focuses on the choices Mississippian potters made in choosing materials, forming, firing, and decorating their pottery, choices that afford archaeologists a way of organizing material culture in space and time. A ceramics analysis based on types, varieties, and attributes is presented here, resulting in a refinement of the phase chronology for the northern Yazoo Basin. Based on the ceramics analysis, site stratigraphy, radiocarbon dates, and a Correspondence Analysis (CA), two chronological sub-phases were identified and their characteristics described. Parchman I corresponds to the 14th-century occupation at Parchman Place; Parchman II corresponds to the 15th-century occupation.
