About this product
- DescriptionArchaeologists, ethhistorians, osteologists, and cultural anthropologists have only recently begun to address seriously the issue of Native American war and peace in the eastern United States. New methods for identifying prehistoric cooperation and conflict in the archaeological record are w helping to advance our kwledge of their existence and importance. Focusing on four major issues in prehistoric warfare studies-settlement patterns, skeletal trauma, weaponry, and icography-David H. Dye presents a new interpretation of ancient war and peace east of the Mississippi. He considers evidence for raiding and more organized forms of warfare, accounts of native warfare witnessed by sixteenth-century Europeans, and the various causes of warfare, such as revenge, competition for resources, and ideology. War Paths, Peace Paths offers an invative analysis of cooperation and conflict in the prehistoric eastern United States.
