Abstract

Since James Ford and Clarence Webb's initial research at Poverty Point in the 1950s, archaeologists have speculated on the age of Lower Jackson mound and its possible association with the Poverty Point earthworks. A comparison of the projectile point assemblages from the two sites, the relative degrees of pedogenesis in mound fill from Poverty Point's Mound A and the Lower Jackson mound, and a submound radiocarbon date from Lower Jackson all suggest that the Lower Jackson mound is Middle Archaic in age.Therefore, Lower Jackson should not be considered part of the Poverty Point earthworks.
