Prehistoric Architecture and the Eastern United States is a pioneering study of ancient architecture that evolved between 2200 B.C. and 1500 A.D. in the geographical area from the Great Lakes to the gulf of Mexico and from the Great Plains to the Atlantic Ocean.

A Handsome and very well organized book with magnificent graphics, the study comparatively analyzes eighty two distinct a sites that were created by Native American builders during the centuries preceding the arrival of Columbus.

Highly recommended for both general and architectural collections.
