Certain Studies of European Trade Bells in the Southeastern United States 




Ian W. Brown and John M. Connaway

September 15, 2023

List Price: $24.95 PB

148 pages, full color

About the Authors

Ian W. Brown and John M. Connaway have each devoted over 50 years of their lives to investigating the archaeology of the Southeastern United States. The Lower Mississippi Valley has been a point of overlap in their work, as has the study of historic trade bells.

Both Ian and John have published several bell studies in diverse venues, and some of these are difficult to find. Some are out of print, and others are in periodicals that are difficult to locate. Archaeologists and other researchers will therefore welcome this compendium of papers in a single volume. For the first time all the pertinent papers are in a single volume, and researchers will no longer have to gather a big stack of books to clutter their lab space and strain their pocketbooks. A welcome addition to the archaeologist’s toolkit!

The Iñupiat of Northwest Alaska over the Past Millenium 

Douglas D. Anderson

May 30, 2023

List Price: $35.00 PB; 45.00 HB

288 pages, full color

With the publication of The Iñupiat of Northwest Alaska over the Past Millennium Douglas D. Anderson gives us a magisterial synthesis of his more than six decades of Arctic research and fieldwork. His books, monographs, and articles have illuminated the human history of Kotzebue Sound’s shores and rivers, revealing a rich tapestry of Iñupiat cultural development and adaptation, an adaptation that encompasses the exploitation of marine, riverine, and terrestrial resources within the region’s complex and changing ecosystem.  In assembling this impressive volume Doug gratefully acknowledges the seminal contributions of his mentors and colleagues, principally Helge Larsen, Froelich Rainey, and Louis Giddings.

Exposing the Apostasy of the Religious Right


George Chumney

August 1, 2022

List Price: $11.50 PB

76 pages, black and white text

To Lose One’s Soul offers a collection of biblical meditations designed to clarify the blatant disparity between the faith that these folks profess and the political views that they espouse. Focusing attention on the practical implications of Scripture, Chumney challenges America’s white evangelicals and white Catholics to repudiate the pundits, politicians, and preachers who have led them astray and to rediscover what it means to follow Jesus.

Life in the Field


Ian W. Brown

August 1, 2022

List Price: $19.95 PB

192 pages, full color text

Combining memoir and diary accounts, Ian Brown examines five decades of personal archaeological research, especially regarding life in the field. Contained within this volume are a multitude of happenings that characterize most if not all fieldwork experiences, but seldom do they enter the final reports of excavations. The book is dedicated to Brown's many students because without them the adventures either would not have occurred or have been as colorful.
