The two works reprinted in this volume represent the pinnacle of the career of one of the most remarkable American archaeologists of the early 20th century, Clarence Bloomfield Moore.

Moore's Certain Aboriginal Remains of the Black Warrior River (1905) and Moundville Revisited (1907) brought the Moundville site in Alabama to the attention of the scholarly world in dramatic fashion by offering a splendid photographic display and expert commentary on its artifactual richness. Moore was the leading southeastern specialist of his day and the most prolific excavator of southern sites during the early part of the 20th century. Today Moore gives the impression of having been everywhere, having excavated everything, and having published on all of it. Moundville Expeditions contains facsimile reprints of these two classic works, along with a new scholarly introduction by one of the leading authorities on the Moundville archaeological site. Once again these rare materials on Moundville are available both for scholars and for a general audience.

 


Vernon James Knight Jr., is Professor of Anthropology at The University of Alabama and Curator of Archaeology at the Alabama Museum of Natural History.


"These are two very important works about one of the most spectacular archaeological sites in North America, and they define the foundation on which many recent studies have been based. The large scale of Moore's excavations, the clarity of his descriptions, and the profusion of illustrations are what make these works so valuable and interesting today. Scholars mine them endlessly for data; lay readers see them brimming with photos of beautiful artifacts. Making Moore's works available and adding a new introduction that explicitly situates Moore's findings in relation to recent research are significant contributions to modern scholarship of the southeastern United States."
—Vincas P. Steponaitis, The University of North Carolina

"An incredible corpus of data. The quality and abundance of illustrations provide lay readers and art historians with a feast for the eyes."
