Early Holocene Foraging Strategies in the Eastern United States: A View from Koster (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Timothy Messner.

Over the last several decades, Dolores Piperno has made significant methodological and theoretical contributions to our archaeological understanding of the past. This paper draws on these insights to explore Early Holocene foraging strategies in the Lower Illinois River Valley and how these practices fit within their paleoenvironmental and social contexts. These data offer insights into the long trajectory toward plant domestication in eastern North America and the construction of space and...

On the other hand, these time periods are also known for the emergence of exchange networks centered on items including bone pins and bifaces. I argue that the co-occurrence of exchange networks and intergroup violence was likely the result of iterated "live and let live" or...
