Analyzing the Use of Inter-Structure Space at Ames, a Mississippian Town in Fayette County, Tennessee
Author(s): Benjamin Cross
Ames (40FY7) is an Early-Middle Mississippian period town with two dozen structures, four mounds, and plazas enclosed within a palisade located in Fayette County, Tennessee, which dates to A.D. 1050-1300. Very little research has been done on Early-Middle Mississippian settlements in West Tennessee; this has resulted in very little being known about the social life history of these sites. Recent research at Ames has utilized multiple lines of evidence such as magnetometry data, surface collections, and excavation to determine the function and organization of space throughout the site.
