520 2  "Across the social sciences, gradualist evolutionary 
       models of historical dynamics are giving way to 
       explanations focused on the punctuated and contingent 
       'events' through which history is actually experienced. 
       The Archaeology of Events is the first book-length work 
       that systematically applies this new eventful approach to 
       major developments in the pre-Columbian Southeast. 
       Traditional accounts of pre-Columbian societies often 
       portray them as 'cold' and unchanging for centuries or 
       millennia. Events-based analyses have opened up 
       archaeological discourse to the more nuanced and flexible 
       idea of context-specific, rapidly transpiring, and broadly
       consequential historical 'events' as catalysts of cultural
       change. The Archaeology of Events, edited by Zackary I. 
       Gilmore and Jason M. O'Donoughue, considers a variety of 
       perspectives on the nature and scale of events and their 
       role in historical change. These perspectives are applied 
       to a broad range of archeological contexts stretching 
       across the Southeast and spanning more than 7,000 years of
       the region's pre-Columbian history. New data suggest that 
       several of this region's most pivotal historical 
       developments, such as the founding of Cahokia, the 
       transformation of Moundville from urban center to vacated 
       necropolis, and the construction of Poverty Point's Mound 
       A, were not protracted incremental processes, but rather 
       watershed moments that significantly altered the long-term
       trajectories of indigenous Southeastern societies. In 
       addition to exceptional occurrences that impacted entire 
       communities or peoples, Southeastern archaeologists are 
       increasingly recognizing the historical importance of 
       localized, everyday events, such as building a house, 
       crafting a pot, or depositing shell. The essays collected 
       by Gilmore and O'Donoughue show that small-scale events 
       can make significant contributions to the unfolding of 
       broad, regional-scale historical processes and to the 
       reproduction or transformation of social structures. The 
       Archaeology of Events is the first volume to explore the 
       archaeological record of events in the Southeastern United
       States, the methodologies that archaeologists bring to 
       bear on this kind of research, and considerations of the 
       event as an important theoretical concept"--|cProvided by
