Handbook of Mississippi's Prehistoric Indians and Artifacts 

David M. Johnson Jr.

March 1, 2024

List Price: $49.95 PB

640 pages, full color

With all the information accessible online, one would have to spend hours searching to find the amount of information that is understandable to a non-professional and relating to the Southeast, specifically Mississippi, that is available here, right at the reader's fingertips. Here, one can find information that answers the common "what," "how," and "why" questions most people have about pre-contact Mississippi archaeology. Because archaeology is a destructive science and archaeologists are ethically bound to share the results of their work with the public, these are answers the tax-paying public is entitled to know. We are all different and have different interests and priorities, and not everyone gets excited about learning what a celt is or how pottery was made 1,000 years ago, but those who do: responsible collectors, avocational archaeologists, descendant communities, and professional archaeologists can all benefit from the years of knowledge and experience amassed here in this book. Knowledge of the past reminds us of the diversity of human history. We are neither the first, nor the last people to occupy this land. The information is here for you, the good you do with it and how you use it to enrich your life is up to you.

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.
