The first volume in our new American Landscapes series Hopewell Ceremonial Landscapes of Ohio, by Mark Lynott, was published earlier this year and is an acclaimed success. The volume was launched at the SAA conference in San Francisco in April and has been selling like hot cakes ever since.

The sad passing of the author in 2014 also deprived us of one of our Series co-editors but we are delighted to announce that we have recently appointed two new Series Editors who each bring a tremendous amount of experience and enthusiasm to the series.

T.R. Kidder is the Edward S. and Tedi Macias Professor and chair of the Department of Anthropology at Washington University, St Louis and has conducted archaeological, geoarchaeological, and geological research throughout eastern North America, most notably in the Mississippi Valley, where he has done work at sites such as Raffman, Poverty Point, and Cahokia –as well as working extensively in China, Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan. T.R. will be well known to many, having published extensively and served on the editorial boards, or as co-editor, of several major journals and on a variety of influential committees

Timothy Schilling is an archaeologist with the US National Park Service who works widely across the Midwest and Southeastern North America, focusing on geoarchaeology and heritage management issues, but with wider research interests in Native America history, complex societies, prehistoric social organization, political anthropology, historical archaeology, geoarchaeology, historical ecology, and GIS systems. Since completing his PhD at Washington University, St Louis in 2010, he has published numerous works about diverse topics from ancient monuments and earthworks to food production, and he holds several adjunct teaching positions in addition to his work with NPS.

The next two titles in the series: Ancient Effigy Mound Landscapes of Upper Midwestern North America, by Robert A.
