University Press of Florida

This chapter orients the reader with a discussion of anthropological and archaeological theory pertaining to culture contact and the history of research at Cahokia. A brief summary of Mississippian settlement systems and chronology in the Greater Cahokia area, the northern hinterland, and the Lower Illinois River Valley provides the regional background and theoretical focus necessary for situating the arguments made in subsequent chapters. The theoretical frameworks include political economy, craft production, and theories of identity and tradition, migration, and social interaction.

Keywords:   Archaeological theory, culture contact, Greater Cahokia, northern hinterland, Lower Illinois River Valley, political economy, craft production, identity, tradition, migration, social interaction
