Temples for Cahokia Lords: Preston Holder’s 1955–1956 Excavations of Kunnemann Mound

Timothy R. Pauketat

Preston Holder, a brilliant iconoclast, excavated these mounds in 1955. Decades later, the excavation still stands as one of the best-documented major excavations of the Cahokia area. Unfortunately, Holder never completed the project. This volume, meticulously researched and written, is the book Holder never completed. Pauketat also includes the massive research and theoretical developments that have emerged since 1957.
