Building the Past: Prehistoric Wooden Post Architecture in the Ohio Valley-Great Lakes By Brian G. Redmond, Robert A. Genheimer
2015 | 416 Pages | ISBN: 0813060400 | PDF | 10 MB

The study of ancient architecture reveals much about the social constructs and culture of the planners, builders, and inhabitants of the structures, but few studies bridge the gap between architecture and archaeology. This comprehensive examination of sites in the Ohio Valley, going as far north as Ontario, integrates structural engineering and wood science technology into the toolkit of archaeologists. Presenting the most current research on structures from pre-European contact, Building the Past allows archaeologists to expand their interpretations from simply describing postmold patterns to more fully envisioning the complex construction of critical locations like Hopewell, Moorehead Circle, and BrownAEs Bottom. The record of perishable architecture at these sites has proven difficult to interpret because it is often merely organic residues, such as soil stains from decayed wall posts, charred timbers, or trenched wall foundations. Addressing new discoveries and presenting previously unpublished data, this volume is an invaluable resource for archaeologists investigating the diverse ways prehistoric societies manifested their social worlds in earth, wood, and stone.
