Absolute age refers to a specific time, e.g., 15, years ago. Relative time places an event in a sequence of events-after some events but before others. Such an endeavor is not easy, however.

This volume stands as a key general resource for archaeologists working in the region extending from Louisiana through Mississippi north to Missouri and Kentucky, and it represents an opportunity to influence for decades a large part of the archaeological work to take place in the Southeast.

Abandoned channels, levees, splays, and other floodplain features were created on the river valley's exposed terraces.
