Panhandle Archaeological Society at Tallahassee (PAST)
B. Calvin Jones Center for Archaeology at the Gov. Martin House
Join us on Tuesday, January 7, 2014, at 7 P.M., as Dr. Adam King presents “The Etowah-Lake Jackson Connection: Shared Iconography, Linked Histories.” It has long been recognized that the famous Mississippian (AD 900-1600) mound centers of Lake Jackson, on the Florida Panhandle, and Etowah, in northwestern Georgia, were linked through shared objects, imagery, and ritual themes. This talk will draw upon recent advances in iconographic research to explore the meaning of those shared images and themes. In particular I will focus on items of embossed copper, engraved shell, and effigy pipes. Ultimately, this comparison sheds new light on the connections that linked Etowah and Lake Jackson. PAST meetings are at the B. Calvin Jones Center for Archaeology at the Gov. Martin House, 1001 De Soto Park Dr., Tallahassee. De Soto Park Dr. is off Lafayette St. between Seminole Dr. and Myers Park Dr. Look for the PAST sign on Lafayette St. on the evening of the meeting.
