These ties connect many sites to one another across the network, with Hopefully the results presented here can serve as a context for future sites linked to one another through many series of ties whereby to get studies that integrate other materials including copper, stone, and from one node to another, many links must be traversed. On closer ceramic paraphernalia as well as a consideration for the many artistic inspection however, it seems that there are also structural properties traditions represented by the gorget dataset but not included here.

Finally, it is important to note that at its foundations, the left side of the graph Fig.

The network graphs presented here bridge the two sub-groups. The presence of both long ties and tight-knit are all based on the comparison of archaeological materials.

In this case it represents the sum of similarity scores between one site and all other sites with which it is connected. Two-mode network analysis Eigenvector centrality is a function of the centrality of all the nodes to which one node is connected Bonacich, Thus, in calculating The two-mode network is presented in Fig.

In this case, both degree and eigenvector centrality measures political centers occupied throughout the Mississippian world including indicate that the most well-connected communities were those located Etowah, Dallas, Toqua, Citico, Fains Island, and Talassee. In line with between the two dense sub-graphs and include the communities of previous studies that proposed a core area of shell gorget distribution, Etowah, Toqua, Fains Island, Citico, Dallas, Talassee, and Long Island.

Communities from each of the some of their contemporaries. These latter sites, while not as diverse as sub-graphs, as well as a handful of communities situated between the the former, seem to share a similar package of iconographic symbols as two subgraphs, exhibit high betweenness centrality scores.

Woolcock and Narayan, while bridging networks can be used to facilitate real economic shifts as looser ties allow for more individual action and strategy within the network structure Crowe, Bonding capital can be split into complete network structures and factional network structures while bridging capital can be split into coalitional networks and bridging networks. Factional networks are characterized by two or more groups or components that are not connected to one another through any ties.

Coalitional networks are composed of dense networks connected to one another through weak ties between groups.
