The Making of Mississippian Tradition
Christina M. Friberg
Christina Friberg investigates the influence of Cahokia, the largest city of North America’s Mississippian culture between AD 1050 and 1350, on smaller communities throughout the midcontinent. This book offers a new, more nuanced interpretation of how and why Mississippian lifeways developed.
Cahokia in Context: Hegemony and Diaspora
Edited by Charles H. McNutt and Ryan M. Parish
At its height between AD 1050 and 1275, the city of Cahokia was the largest settlement of the Mississippian culture, acting as an important trade center and pilgrimage site. While the influence of Cahokian culture on the development of monumental architecture, maize-based subsistence practices, and economic complexity throughout North America is undisputed, new research in this volume reveals a landscape of influence of the regions that had and may not have had a relationship with Cahokia.
