Summary:
This collection consists of ten documents, all in English, which discuss Adena from 2675 B.P. - 1750 B.P. (675 B.C. - 250 A.D.). The best overview is provided by Hays, who used existing collections to compare the Adena mortuary programs in two different areas of Ohio, and also examined two open air or village sites. Webb and Baby looked at a large number of mound sites, as did Webb and Snow. Both of these documents list the known Adena mound sites up to 1950 and supply trait lists. Carskadden discusses settlement patterns based on survey data from the drainage basins and the hinterlands. Dragoo describes and analyzes the material he excavated from the Cresap Mound. Webb and Snow and Snow and Baby both did physical anthropological studies which discuss how the Adena people would have looked based primarily on the cranial material. Clay looks at the possible rituals that may have occurred with Adena mounds and how they changed over time. Griffin describes ceramics from the Adena mounds and compares them to other early ceramics in the eastern United States. Goslin discusses the plant and animal remains found in mound sites.
