Frontiers in the Soil is a classic in archaeological literature that should be useful to everyone. Using easy-to-read text by Roy S. Dickens, Jr., and creative color cartoon illustrations by James L. McKinley, Frontiers interprets Georgia’s past with humor in over 100 pages, first printed in 1979.
Dickens describes archaeological methods and ethics through the lens of young archaeologists working on a excavation project that uncovers a Mississippian-period village. The story moves to the laboratory where fragments of broken ceramic pots and other artifacts begin to tell the story of the people who once lived in the village.
McKinley’s illustrations are accurate and captivating, and worthy of close study.
