Synopsis

Given its pivotal location between the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico, its numerous islands, its abundant flora and fauna, and its subtropical climate, Florida has long been ideal for human habitation. Yet Florida traditionally has been considered peripheral in the study of ancient cultures in North America, despite what it can reveal about social and climate change. The essays in this book resoundingly argue that Florida is in fact a crucial hub of archaeological inquiry.New Histories of Pre-Columbian Florida represents the next wave of south-eastern archaeology. Contributors use new data to challenge well-worn models of environmental determinism and localised social contact. Indeed, this volume makes a case for considerable interaction and exchange among Native Floridians and the greater south-eastern United States as seen by the variety of objects of distant origin and mound-building traditions that incorporated extra regional concepts. Themes of monumentality, human alterations of landscapes, the natural environment, ritual and mortuary practices, and coastal adaptations demonstrate the diversity, empirical richness, and broader anthropological significance of Florida's aboriginal past.
