Regional Perspectives on Neolithic Pit Deposition: Beyond the Mundane

The increase to prominence of pits inside narratives of the British and Irish Neolithic is well-documented in contemporary literature. Pits were cropping up in excavations for hundreds of years, leading to a really extensive spectrum of interpretations yet 3 major components have ended in the hot switch in our notion and illustration of those beneficial properties: a large shift in people's expectancies as to what a Neolithic payment can be; the advance of the idea that of 'structured deposition', in which pits have performed a key function; and a dramatic upward thrust within the variety of pits truly recognized approximately.

Regular archaeological field schools conducted at the site have made this one of the most intensively sampled large prehistoric sites in the valley. A formal Central Mississippi Valley Archaeological Survey was begun by the University of Michigan in 1949 (Griffin and Spaulding 1952). Griffin and Spaulding defined their research area as stretching along the Mississippi floodplain from the mouth of the Illinois River to southeast Missouri, where the Lower Valley survey had stopped. Their major goal was to gather data to set up a complete cultural sequence.

Moore's steamboat captain explored the territory in advance, locating promising sites and getting landowner permission to excavate. Moore spent four field seasons between 1908 and 1916 in the Central Valley area, first on the Lower Arkansas, Yazoo, and Sunflower rivers, then on the St. Francis, next on the Mississippi River itself, and finally on the Mississippi above Memphis and into the Ohio and Green rivers in Kentucky. Moore's main publication emphasis was on pottery. For instance, at Pecan Point in Mississippi County, Arkansas (Moore 1 9 1 1 : 4 4 7 - 4 7 4 ) , he recovered 349 burials, which included 535 pottery vessels.

All his notes and photographs are still missing. "Captain" Wilfrid Hall was another person who spent many years accumulating and redistributing artifacts from the Central Valley during the late nineteenth century (Griffin 1981). Hall sent barrels of pottery and stone tools to his patrons to the north, particularly the Putnam Museum in Davenport, Iowa, and the Cabinet Association of Jacksonville, Illinois. These artifacts were shipped without suitable packing and often arrived in poor condition.
