A Persistent Place: A Landscape Approach to the Prehistoric Archaeology of the Greenlee Tract in Southern Ohio
About the Book:
A Persistent Place represents a unique approach to disseminating the archaeological results of a long-term cultural resource management project conducted along the Ohio River in southern Adams County, Ohio. This highly descriptive manuscript describes nearly 20 years of archaeological investigations that revealed some 12,000 years of persistent Native American occupation (Paleoindian - Fort Ancient) that took place upon a dynamic, aggrading landscape. Using a siteless landscape approach, A Persistent Place addresses various research topics including landform geomorphic histories and the potential for buried resources along the Ohio River; environmental patterns and cycles; settlement patterning and subsistence strategies; the organization of tool technologies; site layout and organization; and feature construction, maintenance, and cooking techniques; and, the rise of village life in the Ohio Valley. Several unique archaeological discoveries are highlighted including:
Arguably the best evidence for Middle Archaic (6500-4000 B.C.) occupation found anywhere in the state;
Evidence for repeated, long-term Late Archaic occupation and intense resource exploitation;
A rare open-aired, paired-post Early Woodland (700 – 100 B.C.) ceremonial structure;
An isolated Middle Woodland domestic occupation with a lone burial; and
One of the largest Middle-Late Woodland (A.D. 300-600) villages in the region.
Rarely has such an array of topics been addressed in a single monograph project.

Pat Trader, Principal Investigator in the Archaeology Group, reviewed Archaeology and Cultural Resources Management: Visions for the Future, edited by Lynne Sebastian and William D. Lipe. The review appeared in the journal Public Historian Volume 33(2): 116-117.
Pat Trader, PI in the Archaeology Group has recently authored and co-authored two articles in the Illinois Archaeology journal. His co-authored article with Seth Mitchell, Charles Moffat, and Michael Hambacher provides an overview of the Rockies Express East Pipeline Project (REX-East), examining the significance of the archaeological investigations conducted in advance of the natural gas pipeline to Illinois archaeology. Trader was instrumental in organizing archaeologists from several consulting firms to contribute the results of their investigations in the current volume of Illinois Archaeology. Trader's solo contribution to the volume examines data recovery efforts conducted by Gray & Pape in 2008 at Site 11ST547, a predominately Late Woodland (A.D. 660 to 1120) site found in the interior uplands of Scott County, Illinois. Based on Trader's examination of prehistoric ceramics, he found that several prehistoric groups are represented at the site and suggests that the site inhabitants were living in a frontier or shatter zone at the time, and interprets the presence of hybrid pottery as a result of intermarriage or possibly forced captivity.
