CONFERENCE ON SOUTH CAROLINA ARCHAEOLOGY
2, 2013 USC COLUMBIA --GAMBRELL HALL ROOM 250
KEYNOTE PRESENTATION Mound-top Precincts and the Coming of the
Birdman: Insights into Etowah’s History from Remote Sensing and
is most famous for its enormous earthen platform mounds and the
spectacular array of Native American ritual objects recovered from
mortuary contexts. We have known that these were part of Etowah’s
history for decades. However, only recently have studies of the
meaning of ancient Mississippian symbolism—iconography—begun to
reveal the fascinating story behind those ritual objects. At the same
time, advances in remote sensing techniques have allowed us to
examine the site’s mounds and village areas without digging,
exposing new kinds and novel arrangements of architecture. In this
talk I blend this new information with what is known about Etowah to
create a new synthesis of site’s history.
