Abstract : The excavations conducted in the Lubbub Archaeological Locality examined in detail a Mississippian period settlement located on the Tombigbee River, in Pickens County, Alabama. Work at the site was carried out by the University of Michigan between 1978 and 1979. Nearly 25,000 square meters of the site were excavated, uncovering a mound, Mississippian house sites, features, and post-holes. Detailed analyses were carried out on the lithic, ceramic, faunal, floral and human skeletal materials recovered from the site. Site community patterns are described and compared to other Mississippian period sites in Alabama. Contents: Classification of Ceramics; An Analysis of Lithic Materials; Floral Remains; Analysis, Synthesis, and Interpretation of Faunal Remains; Molluscan Remains and Shell Artifacts; Biocultural Analysis of Human Skeletal Remains from the Lubbub Creek Archaeological Locality.)
