Migration and Climate Change in Mississippian Archaeology: An Introduction and Brief History
Author(s): John Blitz
This is an abstract from the "Migration and Climate Change: The Spread of Mississippian Culture" session, at the 84th annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology.
This paper introduces the symposium "Migration and Climate Change: The Spread of Mississippian Culture ca. A.D. 1050-1400." I provide a brief history of migration and climate change research in the archaeology of Mississippian societies. These earlier research efforts -- the theoretical contexts in which they occurred, the critiques they encountered, the insights they produced, and the limitations of their methods -- serve as a prologue to the papers in the symposium.
