Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document Anderson used site data from ten states in the southeast (Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee) to examine regional settlement patterns during the Early, Middle, and Late Archaic periods. Anderson standardized the data by presenting the site component as a percentage of all sites recorded in that county or parish (maps show the distribution of sites by period). He then discusses where sites are found (river valleys, Piedmont, etc.) during each Archaic period and within the ten states. Anderson shows that regional adaptations during the Archaic were not homogeneous and he suggests how the data may reflect differences in settlement organization, mobility, and territoriality.
