Kevin E. Smith, Middle Tennessee State University professor of anthropology, will discuss the florescence of ancient Native American Mississippian culture centered on Nashville between A.D. 1000 and 1500. 

By A.D. 1250, the Mississippian population of the region reached perhaps 25,000 – unsurpassed by historic Nashville until about 1865 – and is widely recognized as one of the primary centers of politics, religion, and commerce for the prehistoric Midwest and Southeast.
