Perttula on the Gilmore Corridor

It deals with the putative Gilmore Corridor-a possible route of contact and exchange between Mexico and the U.S. Southeast through Texas and possible archeological evidence for culture contacts between Woodland and Mississippian period groups in Texas and the Southeast and "Classic and Postclassic cultures of Mesoamerica" (Kibler 2005:197). At the time Krieger was writing, archeological evidence of such contacts were not extensive, but the concept of culture contacts between these different cultures was important as a mechanism by which to account for how ideas and artifacts may have been diffused and moved, and how Mexican cultures could have influenced the development of archeological cultures in Texas and the U.S. Southeast. Kibler's (2005:204) recent examination of these continental connections through a Gilmore Corridor indicates that "if the exchange of materials and ideas between Mesoamerica and the southeastern United States through the Gulf coastal plain of Texas occurred at all, the dynamics at play over the last few millennia make the archaeological demonstration of this exchange difficult at best.....
