Abstract

As originally defined by Hudson et al. (1985), Coosa was a 16th-century chiefdom extending from southeastern Tennessee into eastern Alabama. An important component in the construction of Coosa as a paramount chiefdom is the identification of a Napochie village at the Audubon Acres Site (40HA84) in Chattanooga An overview of the results of research and looting at this and other local sites where 16th-century Spanish artifacts have been recovered is applied to the Coosa question.
