Abstract

The problem of Middle to Late Woodland cultural change has been one of the most difficult areas of interpretation confronting Midwestern archaeologists. The characteristics of this transformation can be viewed as reflecting, at least in part, episodes of social change. Procedures for isolating, and measuring, prehistoric social variables are introduced and applied to a temporal series of Woodland mortuary systems from west-central Illinois. The results indicate a pattern of change leading to the development of complex social systems during the Mississippian period.
