"In the Eastern United States, Indian cultures existing before the coming of the Europeans and their written language have been organized into four basic groupings: Paleoindian, Archaic, Woodland, and Late Prehistoric. These groups are defined by basic patterns of settlements, economy, and artifacts spread over a fairly large region. While the groups generally followed each other in time, they also overlapped somewhat."
