Description

BOOK DESCRIPTION
The primary objective of this study was to complete a comprehensive osteological analysis of a skeletal collection of the Effigy Mound Culture (Wisconsin, c. 650-1200 AD), in order to contribute to the relatively scanty literature and knowledge of these pre-contact Native people. The project provided a rare and unique opportunity to study the demography and osteological characteristics of a selected population belonging to this culture.
