Description

Ancient America invites readers to explore the stunning technological, architectural, engineering and artistic achievements of America’s first peoples. Part travel guide, part friendly reference, Ancient America showcases sites across the United States including monumental pyramids of earth, “castles” ensconced in cliff niches, and vast rock art galleries. In addition to practical visitor information, Feder tells the fascinating stories of each site as revealed by archaeological research. Whether you want to visit or be an armchair traveler, you will be inspired by these remarkable places where the past continues to resonate in the present.

Kenneth Feder is a professor in the Department of Anthropology at Central Connecticut State University. He obtained his B.A. in anthropology from the State University of New York at Stonybrook and Ph.D. in anthropology from the University of Connecticut. His primary research interests include the archaeology of the native peoples of New England and the analysis of public perceptions about the human past.

He is the founder and director of the Farmington River Archaeological Project, a long-term investigation of the prehistory of the Farmington River Valley and has authored and co-authored several books including: The Past In Perspective: An Introduction to Human Prehistory, and Linking to the Past: A Brief Introduction to Archaeology.
