The United States

Canyon of the Ancients

The early peoples of the United States varied greatly in language, culture, and building techniques/pottery styles.  This website focuses on the tangible heritage of those cultures, in particular structures, pottery, and other artifacts.  There are numerous excellent sources for the intangible heritage of those cultures, like language, religious systems, and cultural relationships.

Ancient sites are grouped by state in this website, each state page (see links to the right) provides an overview of the history of the early peoples of that area.
