For nearly 6,000 years the Ohio and Mississippi valleys sustained cultures whose monumental architecture rivaled the pyramids of Mexico and Egypt. Yet the history and archaeology of these early North Americans has gone largely ignored and, in some cases, has been forgotten.
In Hidden Cities, Roger G. Kennedy sets out to recover the rich heritage of the earliest North American peoples and to trace their influence of the leading citizens of a young United States, including George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, whose missions of exploration and inquiry brought them face-to-face with the remnants of the past. Building on the work of recent archaeologists and historians, Kennedy reveals the sophistication and complexity of these early cities and offers reasons why history has until recently refused to credit fully the accomplishments of our Native American predecessors.
