 Variation in Ohio Hopewell Political Economies Minimize

Matthew S. Coon

I examine mortuary, artifactual, symbolic, and proxemic data from sites in southwestern and south-central Ohio to suggest that people associated with south-central Ohio sites such as Hopewell and Seip implemented more exclusionary political strategies, while people at southwestern sites such as Turner and Fort Ancient maintained a more corporate orientation through much of the Middle Woodland period. The recognition of this dimension of variation among Ohio Hopewell peoples has important implications for the study of the evolution of middle-range societies.

Por medio del análisis de múltiples líneas de evidencia encontrados en sitios al sudoeste y al surcentral de Ohio, propongo que los habitantes de sitos como Hopewell y Seip utilizaban estategias políticas exclusionarias mientras que los habitantes de sitos tales como Turner y Fort Ancient mantuvieron una estrategia política corporativa durante la mayor parte del periodo Middle Woodland. El reconocimiento de esta variación entre los antiguos habitantes de Hopewell en Ohio tiene implicaciones importantes para el estudio de la evolución de estas sociedades de medio rango.
