Pressestimmen"A fascinating picture of human adaptation in an area of North America that has been studied primarily by archaeologists... [that] provides a new understanding of the responses in health and lifeways in a coastal setting, showing especially the very localized nature of food choices and resource acquisition." - Clark S. Larsen, Ohio State University "This thoughtful integration of archaeological, historical, ecological, and human bioarchaeological data provides a significant new perspective on the biological costs and benefits of Middle and Late Woodland coastal adaptations in North Carolina. Hutchinson reveals a breadth of successful adaptive variations hitherto obscured by generalized summaries of Late Prehistoric Native American lifeways in the mid-Atlantic region." - Mary Lucas Powell, University of Kentucky
