Abstract

Data from various mound sites in southeastern Louisiana are presented to illustrate the probability that mound construction occurred in the area millennia before the earthworks of Poverty Point were built. Particular attention is given to sites with radiocarbon dates from mound contexts and I or diagnostic artifacts of the Archaic period.Many other undated mound sites in southeastern Louisiana are also reviewed for possible Archaic components. Similarities and differences in the sites with better information are discussed, along with some hypotheses concerning the longevity of certain precepts of mound construction in the prehistoric Southeast.
