Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungSpanning 12,000 years, this scientifically accurate yet nontechnical and easily digestible book guides readers through the prehistoric and historic archaeological evidence left by Georgia's native peoples. It is the only comprehensive, up-to-date, and text-based overview of its kind in print. Max White draws on an extensive body of archaeological and historical data, tracing Native American cultural development and accomplishment over the millennia preceding the establishment of Georgia as a colony and state. Each chapter opens with a vivid fictional vignette that transports the reader to a past culture and sets the scene for the narrative that follows. From hunting giant buffalo and elephants to attempts in the 1700s and 1800s to maintain tribal integrity in the face of European and Euro-American violence and threats, White takes the reader on an archaeologically-based tour of the land that today is Georgia.Evidence from select archaeological sites and projects is woven into the narrative, and insets supplement the main text to highlight informative quotes from archaeological reports and historical documents. A generous number of photographs, maps, and illustrations are included to aid the reader in identifying artifacts and to give testimony to the artistic abilities of these indigenous peoples of Georgia.
PortraitMax E. White is associate professor of anthropology at Piedmont College and the author of Georgia's Indian Heritage.
