Adena culture in United States

Early Adena culture lasted from 1000 BC to about AD 500. It featured circular houses of poles, wickerwork and bark. Around 500 BC, villagers of the Adena culture in the central Ohio valley revived the Poverty Point mound building tradition.

The Adenas also built large earthen sculpture. Some works formed large enclosures shape as circles, squares or pentagons, which probably served as setting for ritual ceremonies.

The residents were able to live in semi-permanent villages because they were more than hunters and gatherers. They had domesticated certain plants - goosefoot, swartweed and sunflowers and they grew squash and possibly corn.

It is generally accepted that Adena culture became more advance and eventually a different identity was established. Many Adena lifestyle trends carried on into the Middle Woodland Period for several generations.
