The main purpose of this volume is to present the results of recent archeological investigations in Tennessee. When the large aboriginal cemetery near Nashville was discovered and explored several years ago, at the instance of the Tennessee Historical Society, I undertook the duty of preparing a pamphlet illustrating some of the fine types of pottery and other objects from the stone graves; but the material worthy of illustration accumulated so rap idly that it was found impracticable to do justice to it in the modest way contemplated, and the pamphlet has grown gradually into its present proportions. It became necessary to consider the general subject of ancient monuments and antiquities in Tennessee, in order to properly introduce the new material discovered, and thus render the publication useful to a larger class of readers. It seemed also desirable to include a more complete summary, for the benefit of the large number of students in Tennessee specially interested in its antiquities.
As the aboriginal remains of some portions of the neighboring states are very similar in character, I have illustrated specimens from these states, when convenient and of interest, and have felt at liberty to include them in the title to this publication.
