Description: The 13 Southern States from Virginia to Texas have a combined area of approximately 500 million acres. Our understanding of the complex cultural and ecological history of this large region is still evolving. It may be fair to say that until recently, our view of the native peoples of the South and the landscape in which they lived derived chiefly from reports provided by the few European explorers who traveled through this region between A.D. 1500 and A.D. 1700. Their factual descriptions were accurate, but their understanding of the native cultures and ecology was limited and this led to erroneous conclusions (Owen 2002).
