Artist's depiction of a dispersed Caddo settlement in what is today southeastern Arkansas. The house on the rectangular earthen mound in the foreground is that of a chief or shaman; the mound caps the remains of earlier houses of important people. Scattered in the background are family compounds, some with both winter (rectangular) and summer (round) houses as well as raised storage bins where surplus corn was stored. All of the details are based on archeological and historical evidence. Courtesy Arkansas Archeological Survey.
