Crafting History in the Northern Plains

A Political Economy of the Heart River Region, 1400–1750

The University of Arizona Press

In Crafting History in the Northern Plains Mark D. Mitchell illustrates the crucial role archaeological methods and archaeological data can play in producing trans-Columbian histories. Combining an in-depth analysis of the organization of stone tool and pottery production with ethnographic and historical data, Mitchell synthesizes the social and economic histories of the native communities located at the confluence of the Heart and Missouri rivers, home for more than five centuries to the Mandan people.

Mark D. Mitchell is Research Director for the Paleocultural Research Group, a nonprofit organization devoted to archaeological research in the Great Plains and southern Rocky Mountains.
