Approaching Monument Diversity in the Woodland Societies of the Central Scioto Valley
Author(s): Timothy Everhart
The Woodland societies of the central Scioto Valley are renowned for various aspects of their ceremonial practices. Among the better known are craft production of ornate works from exotic materials and the erection of vast monumental landscapes. Those construction practices led to monuments with an incredible diversity of form, scale, and organization. This variability is yet difficult to explain, with the existing explanations differing widely and being inter-related with various other social and ideological factors. Additionally these explanations are based to some extent on limited and biased data sets. Alongside data collected from pre-existing museum collections, recent excavation of an earthen enclosure at the Steel Group offers new data to examine this question.
