An Exploratory Network Analysis of the Historic Caddo Period in Northeast Texas
The goal of this exploratory network analysis is the production of novel hypotheses generated through the use of artifact assemblages recovered from northeast Texas, and assumed to date to the Historic Caddo period based upon taxonomic assignment. Through combining ceramic vessels and arrow point assemblages, it is further assumed that the cultural resolution of the aggregated network will be greater than that of an independent ceramic or lithic network. Some of the communities and sub-communities identified in the network articulate with currently-defined Historic Caddo groups and phases, while others represent previously undefined groups that warrant additional scrutiny and testing.
