2 Archeology of Eastern United States
Griffin, James B. editor 1952 Hard fair Large Quarto 
x; 392 Pp + 200 pages of illustrations including photos and drawings. 5th impression in 1971. Upper right front corner bent and pages i-x and 1-18 effected. Book is composed of chapters on the previous 25 years of archaeology in Eastern North America "race" and ethnology followed by 22 chapters on sections of the continent ranging from Ontario to Florida to the Great Plains written by leading specialists. These chapters are followed by historic (European) site archaeology, Dendrochronolgy in the Mississippi Valley and cultural periods in Eastern U.S. archaeology. As this volume was assembled as the first radio carbon dates were becoming avaliable Griffin scrambled to add a 5-page appendix attempting to construct a system of dated periods. This is followed by a 21-page bibliography, which is followed by perhaps 200-pages of illustrations of artifacts ceramics excavations, burials, maps, and charts. Though, for the most part these papers were written 70 years ago it is still a valuable compilation and a unique look at the understanding of the archaeology of the area just before the influence of carbon dating became an important factor.

6 Biological Relationships of Southern Ontario Woodland Peoples: The Evidence of Discontinuous Cranial Morphology
Molto, Joseph Eldon 1983 Soft VG Quarto 
i-xviii; 396 pp.; A synthesis of biological relationships during the Woodland period of southern Ontario prehistory. The database consists of a battery of discontinuous nonmetric cranial traits which is used to compute C.A.B. Smith’s Mean Measure of Divergence (MMD) between 17 large (N>20 crania) Woodland samples. The research design tests a series of hypotheses formulated from a review of previous skeletal and archaeological studies in the research area. The main strategy is to eliminate those factors potentially biased toward producing Type I or Type II statistical errors and emphasize the selection of an appropriate battery of traits to compare the samples, since inappropriate data would ruin attempts to estimate biological distance from the start. UMVARF. Book illustrated with graphs and tables
