Archaeology contributes material perspectives and temporal dimensions to the study of placemaking. This chapter explores relationships between people and place in Native American town areas of the southern Appalachians. How did these towns situate themselves within the southern Appalachian landscape during the period just before and after European contact? How did practices of placemaking shape Native American responses to encounters and entanglements with Spanish conquistadors and English traders and military expeditions? As evident from archaeology, oral tradition, and place names, many places within the landscape of the southern Appalachians were sources of resilience and stability and points of resistance to change.
