During the period between 1000 and 1425 CE, a thriving indigenous culture, the Middle Cumberland Mississippians, lived along the Cumberland River. Public spaces stretched through Shelby Bottoms, McFerrin Park, Bicentennial Mall, and Germantown. Other villages were scattered across the Nashville landscape, including in the modern neighborhoods of Richland, Sylvan Park, Lipscomb, Duncan Wood, Centennial Park, Belle Meade, White Bridge, and Cherokee Park. In their book, Deter-Wolf and Peres articulate the history of what happened here before Nashville happened. Both authors will join us to discuss the archeology of Davidson County.
