The cultural sequence of this region spans a wide range of time from the earliest occupation to the time of European settlement in the early nineteenth century. This sequence is divided into two areas: prehistoric and historic.
The prehistoric period is divided into smaller periods: Paleoindian, Dalton, Archaic, Woodland, Mississippian, and Protohistoric or Contact. The historic period is divided into Exploration and Early Documentation, Indian Settlement/Resettlement 1700s - 1828, Early Settlement-Bottomland Farming (1828-1870), and Late Settlement Patterns (1870-1940).
