Archaeology of the Iroquois: Selected Readings and Research Sources is a new title from Syracuse University Press series, The Iroquois and Their Neighbors. This book is a collection of 24 previously published, often obscure, articles about the latest research concerning Six Nation Iroquois or Haudenosaunee archaeology. The essays are arranged by themes including Origins, Precolumbian Dynamics, Postcolumbian Dynamics, Material Cultural Studies, and Contemporary Iroquois Perspectives, Repatriation, and Collaborative Archaeology. Part six of the book includes extensive research sources that contain more than 500 entries on the subject. The essays are authored by well-known archaeologists such as Dean Snow, Gary Warrick (Precontact Iroquian Occupation of Southern Ontario; European infectious disease and depopulation of the Wendat- Tionontate (Huron-Petun), Martha Sempowski, William Engelbrecht, James Bradley, and Mima Kapches. Essays by historians and ethnologists such as George Hamell and Anthony Wonderley are also included. Papers by important Haudenosaunee scholars make an important contribution to this collection. Richard Hill, Doug George, Salli Benedict, and G. Peter Jemison contribute important understandings to the issues of repatriation, ownership of the past, and understanding Iroquois roots. There are 109 black-and-white illustrations, 1 full-colour plate showing trade beads, charts, maps, and graphs included in this remarkable volume. Editor Jordan E. Kerber deserves credit for compiling this range of important contemporary works on Iroquois archaeology.
