The Making of Mississippian Tradition

This chapter describes previous and recent archaeological investigations at the Audrey-North site (11Ge20) in the Lower Illinois River Valley. The Center for American Archaeology excavated from 1975 to 1983, exposing both Late Woodland and Cahokia-style structures, a circular sweatlodge, pit features, and a palisade segment. In 2000, Colleen Delaney-Rivera analyzed the ceramic artifacts recovered, identifying Woodland- and Mississippian-period pottery in addition to hybrid pots and non-local vessels. A magnetic gradiometry survey of the site in 2014 revealed two areas of interest for excavation: one Mississippian house and one unidentified anomaly. The house area was exposed with a backhoe, revealing a Stirling-phase (AD 1100–1200) wall trench house and associated pit features. Excavations over the other anomaly revealed a small early Mississippian wall trench structure, the floor of which was lined with yellow clay.
