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.
