Overview

This comprehensive compilation of Moore's archaeological publications on eastern Florida will prove an invaluable primary resource for Florida archaeologists.

Clarence B. Moore (1852-1936), a wealthy Philadelphia socialite, paper company heir, and photographer made the archaeology of the Southeast his passion beginning in the 1870s. This volume collects 17 of Moore's publications on East Florida, originally published between 1892 and 1903. These invaluable and copiously illustrated works document the results of Moore's numerous archaeological expeditions along Florida's eastern coastline from the Georgia border to Lake Okeechobee and focus primarily on sites along the St. Johns River and its tributaries. Moore's archaeological work in East Florida was arguably his best and most thorough research from a modern perspective.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"C. B. Moore's volumes are indispensable to scholars working on the archaeology of the American South, and they are fascinating reading for anyone interested in ancient Indian cultures. Nowadays these volumes are extremely rare and virtually impossible to find. That's why Alabama's Classics in Southeastern Archaeology series is so important. "
—Vincas Steponaitis, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

"Mitchem's introduction . . . is important in its own right."
American Anthropologist
