Mississippi Archaeology

Mississippi Archaeology is published biannually by the Mississippi Department of Archives and History in cooperation with the Mississippi Archaeological Association to present information on field work, artifact analysis, and archaeological theory, and to serve as the journal of record for archaeological activity in Mississippi.

Our most recent issue features:

  • "A Possible Late Mississippian Ceramic Whistle," by Jim Rees and Mark Howell

  • "Archaeological Testing of the Bilbo Basin Shell Deposit Site (22GE512), George County, Mississippi," by Jason Gardner

  • "The Application of Protein Residue Analysis (PRA) to Ceramics Recovered from Mississippi Sites: A Pilot Study," by S. Homes Hogue, Robert McCain, and Janet Rafferty

  • " In the End Lies the Answer: Why do the Walls Frog and Possum Pots have Anuses?," by Janet Ford

Contributions treating the archaeology of Mississippi or the Southeastern region are solicited for publication. Preparation of manuscripts should follow the style used in recent issues; arrangements for electronic transfer of manuscripts can be made after acceptance of a submission, but submissions should be made to the editorial office in hard copy form.
