Dr. Meghan Buchanan’s archaeological research on Mississippian societies of the Midwest and Southeast has focused on the consequences of warfare associated with the rise and fall of these complex polities. In particular, she is interested in exploring how warfare impacted the daily practices of Mississippian peoples as they had to contend with long term threats of violence, food uncertainty, and restricted access to resources.
