North American Archaeology

by knann
College Level Course Notes:This course will document the cultural trajectories of North American Indian cultures emphasizing times prior to European colonization. We will examine the 20,000-plus-year archaeological record for evidence of the original migrations to the New World. Subsequent change, development, and diversity of cultural adaptations will be discussed as indicated by the archaeological record. The course will be organized around the culture areas of North America (e.g., the Arctic, Subarctic, Northwest, Midwest and Great Plains, Northeast, Southeast, Southwest, Great Basin, and California). Within each culture area we will trace the cultural developments that characterized them. While the paramount concern of this class will be to document prehistoric culture dynamics north of Mexico, we will spend some time discussing ancient Mesoamerica—both as an area with its own distinctive characteristics as well as one that may have in part influenced cultural developments to the north.

Journey to a New Land

by knann (via)
Introduction People first arrived in the Americas at least 12,000 years ago. The timing of their arrival and the route by which they travelled are not known. Did they follow an inland ice-free corridor route from Siberia to the unglaciated regions south of the ice sheets? Or did they take a coastal route, travelling by boat down the Pacific Coast? Did people arrive during the ice age, or not until after the glaciers receded? This site explores these and other questions, and looks at some of the evidence and ideas that have been proposed to resolve them. Choose your journey by clicking on the PRIMARY LEVEL, ELEMENTARY LEVEL, MIDDLE SCHOOL LEVEL, SECONDARY LEVEL or POST-SECONDARY LEVEL buttons located above the image at the top of the page. Or choose a shortcut to our Multimedia Library by selecting a category from the menu on the left.

It's focus is the Neolithic and Bronze Ages although where there are particular 'out-of-time' items of interest I have included them too - such as the Zennor Mermaid. This site contains many pictures on each page. All efforts were made to keep the file sizes down but if you are using a modem you should be prepared for the usual download times. Pictures are typically about 20KB size. (If you would like a full colour photograph these are available for purchase - please contact me). Read Introduction
