"The Etowah site in northwestern Georgia is one of the largest centers constructed during the Mississippian period in the American Southeast. Like so many large places around the world, its history is long, complex, and incompletely understood. What we do understand is that Etowah’s occupation is punctuated by periods of abandonment, creating a sequence where the site is remade with each new iteration. In this presentation, I will discuss my current understanding of Etowah’s history and highlight how recent work with remote sensing, artifact style and iconography have provided new insights."
