The Living with Warfare Archaeological Project- http://livingwithwarfare.com/

“This three year project will explore the catastrophic and wide-ranging consequences of war on Mississippian period (A.D. 1100-1425) communities in the Central Illinois River Valley (CIRV). Archaeological data linking escalating violence with both population nucleation and declining health in the Central Illinois River Valley from A.D. 1200 to 1425 reveal that the causal dimensions of warfare were not restricted to political centralization and collapse but reshaped other, more mundane aspects of life. Determining the impacts of this violence on the Mississippian groups subject to these hostilities will help explain the historical trajectory of conflict culminating in the abandonment of the region around A.D. 1425”

The Trowel’s Edge- https://trowelsedge.wordpress.com/

This site will be dedicated to the pursuit, proliferation, and discussion of all things archaeology.  We strive to be a place where open and honest discussions of archaeological issues can thrive.  It is our goal that this site develops and maintains an interactive relationship with its readers and encourages all thoughts and opinions to be expressed.  Above all else we wish to expose the non-academic community to the world of archaeology.
