Summary

Charles H. Faulkner arrived at the University of Tennessee in 1964 charged with the unenviable task of building upon the archaeological legacy of Thomas M. N. Lewis and Madeline D. Kneberg. After a career that has spanned four decades, numerous site investigations, and valiant preservation efforts, Faulkner has created a legacy all his own among archaeologists working in the Tennessee River Valley.Pottery, Passages, Postholes, and Porcelainbrings together more than twenty contributors-many, Faulknerrs"s former students-and thirteen essays dedicated to the craft of archaeological inquiry in Tennessee and the southeastern United States.In paying homage to Faulknerrs"s own career that included both work at prehistoric and historic sites, this volume discusses investigations from such prehistoric locals as Native American rock shelters and mounds, to historic sites that include farmsteads, iron factories, African American urban homesteads, and a Civil Warera stockade. Editors Timothy Baumann and Mark Groover also provide an introductory look into Faulknerrs"s career arc as he grew from a classically trained archaeologist to become one of the first scholars to use detailed historical research in conjunction with archaeological analysis to piece together the puzzles of the historic past. Finally, Baumann provides an interview illustrating that Faulknerrs"s greatest legacy cannot be seen in his numerous awards or publications but in his students working in the field today.
