From the Publisher"Mason's work significantly advanced Creek archaeology in general and the archaeology of European-Indian contact studies in particular. She combined excellent historical research with archaeological analysis, yielding a historical archaeological synthesis that was groundbreaking for the emerging discipline of historical archaeology. . . . Her description of the European trading post and analysis of aboriginal features intruding this European feature are extremely detailed. She was able to document Native use of the trading post area by the Creeks after the post was abandoned."
—from the new Foreword by Marvin T. Smith
"A classic study of Contact period archaeology. . . . This volume examines the late 17th-early 18th century Creek village and fortified English trading post on the Macon Plateau. . . . An exemplary model for Contact archaeology studies today."
