Empirical Characterization of Exchange Systems in Lower Mississippi Valley Prehistory

Abstract

For more than a half century, archaeologists have recognized nonlocal, or exotic, artifacts and raw materials in the Lower Mississippi Valley, and a few early accounts evoked trade to explain them. Frank Setzler (1933a:153, 1933b:6–7), for example, suggested that the ceramic similarities between midwestern Hopewell and the Marksville site and vicinity in central Louisiana may have been due to “commercial intercourse.” Also, at the Crooks Mounds, another Marksville period mortuary site, Ford and Willey (1940:131) found “evidence... of extensive trade of material used for artifacts”: conch shells from the Gulf of Mexico, copper from Lake Superior deposits, galena and quartz from the mountains of Arkansas, and volcanic tuff and pumice from an unknown nonlocal source.
