Were the builders of the famous earthworks and mounds of the Middle Ohio Valley, people we today call Ohio Hopewell, residentially mobile or sedentary populations? What role and meaning did Hopewell earthworks play within these ancient societies? Ultimately, can they teach us anything or help us see things anew? The chapters in this book address important questions, like these and others, by examining the cultural and social nature of the well-known Ohio Hopewell monumental earthworks. Chapters discuss the purpose, meaning, and role of earthworks and other artifacts, theorizing on how they may have reflected political, social, and practical ecological organization. Presented in a unique “dialogical” structure, this series of open conversations and debates about divergent archaeological practices provides a unique opportunity for the contributors to this book to assess directly their colleagues' various approaches to studying these ancient communities.
