From the Publisher
"The University of Alabama Press has again done the right thing in publishing an affordable reprint of C. C. Jones, Jr.'s, Antiquities of the Southern Indians. Jones was the first anthropologist to be honored with an obituary in the American Anthropologist, and for a very long time he was the only one. Antiquities of the Southern Indians, his masterpiece, sets a very high critical standard for the nascent science of archaeology in the South. And as an exemplar of precise, graceful English prose, has another southern archaeologist surpassed him to this day? "
—Charles M. Hudson, The University of Georgia
"Though ethnohistorical and archaeological methodologies have changed significantly since Jones published his work, this classic volume will interest students of southeastern Indians as well as scholars of the history of archaeology."
