A Dan Josselyn Memorial Publication

C. B. Moore's investigations of the Lower Mississippi Valley are here collected in a one-volume facsimile edition.

Like many other natural scientists from the Victorian era, Clarence Bloomfield Moore (1852-1917) lived several lives—adventurer, paper company executive, archaeologist; however, Moore is chiefly remembered for the twenty-five years he spent investigating and documenting archaeological sites along every navigable waterway in the southeastern United States.

Moore's surveys were and are impressive, and he earned lasting respect from archaeological researchers in the South by publishing, mostly at his own expense, all of the data he recovered. This volume includes works that describe data from Moore's expeditions that were key to the early recognition and preservation of major archaeological sites—Toltec, Parkin, Mound City, and Wicklife, among them—in the lower Mississippi River Valley. This and companion volumes stand today as the defining database for every area in which he worked.


Dan F. Morse is former Station Archaeologist for the Arkansas Archeological Survey. Phyllis A. Morse is an archaeologist and an independent scholar.

 


"Here, under one cover, we at last have Moore's expeditions to the middle reaches of America's Nile (the Mississippi) and its major tributaries in the Mid-South, edited by the leading Mississippi Valley researchersof the past three decades, the Morses. A must for scholars, students, and serious amateurs!"
—Marvin D. Jeter, Arkansas Archeological Survey
