Abstract

Excavations at the St. Thomas site (11MS54) revealed intact Mississippian features representing a Moorehead phase household cluster and a single Stirling phase pit. These features are remnants of a much larger habitation area. The proximity of this habitation area to the Mitchell site, the Mississippian mound center of the northern American Bottom floodplain, affords a glance into rural lifeways in this part of the American Bottom. This article summarizes the Moorehead phase component at St. Thomas.
