woodland-indians-tp

For almost 5,000 years—from about 3000 BCE to 1500 CE—the prehistoric Indians of the woodland areas of midwestern and southeastern North America fashioned utilitarian and ceremonial objects from shell, stone, metal, wood, and clay. This program discusses the cultural and aesthetic significance of these ancient artifacts. Illustrations accompany the text, which also includes maps showing the Archaic, Woodland, and Mississippian period sites where the pieces were excavated.
