Wickliffe Mounds overlook the Mississippi in Kentucky. Around 1100 CE, farmers and traders with a culture resembling the indigenous tribes of the Southeast created a settlement there, where they lived for 250 years. This volume is a compilation of 70 years' archaeological excavations at the site.

MEDIA REVIEWS

This book is interesting for not only its archaeological content but also its format. Few archaeology books aim to satisfy both professional and nonprofessional audiences, but that is what Wesler's ambitious and deceptively small volume about Wickliffe does. He attempts this feat by bundling with the text a CD that contains an additional twelve chapters, four databases, and over 700 figures. The chapters in the paper volume are of more general interest than the material allocated to the CD. I am very impressed by the result: a readable book supplemented with unusually abundant technical detail. "Southeastern Archaeology"
