Mural (painted by Karen Carr) on display in "The First Alabamians" museum exhibit at the Alabama Department of Archives and History (ADAH). While the mural itself is not a primary source, the artist incorporated a number of primary source artifacts housed at ADAH into the scene depicted. Woodland people began to live in larger and more complex communities due to advances in technology and farming. This mural shows that they used ceramic pottery made of clay mixed with sand or grit, and they wore woven cloth. People began cultivating crops such as corn, squash, and beans. They continued to use spears for hunting.
