Ben Steer with his book, "The Archaeology of Houses and Households in the Native Southeast"

Ben Steere, Director of Cherokee Studies at Western Carolina University (Ph.D. '11), has published a book exploring the evolution of houses and households in the Southeast from the Woodland to the Historic Indian period (200 B.C. to 1800 A.D.). A reviewer states that “The Archaeology of Houses and Households in the Native Southeast” is certain to become an essential reference for anyone doing native archaeology in the Southeast. Another calls the book “a critically important work that moves beyond mere synthesis and summary.”
