Paul Mickey Science Series: Morton Village: New Views on the Intersection of Oneota and Mississippian Worlds

  • Location: ISM Research & Collections Center, Springfield
  • Date: Wednesday, September 10, 2014, 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Presented by Dr. Jodie A. O'Gorman, Associate Professor and Chair of Anthropology, Michigan State University

Understanding the larger social context for elevated levels of violence that have been documented for late prehistory in the Central Illinois River Valley has been the over-arching goal guiding research at the Morton Village excavations for the past seven years. The question of who lived at the village will be evaluated with new evidence, and the social contexts for interactions leading to conflict and cooperation examined. Drawing on field work conducted by Dr. O'Gorman and Dr. Michael Conner of Dickson Mounds Museum, the presentation will consider community structure, architecture, ritual, foodways, and more.
