In 1993 an archaeologist named David Hally proposed a model of understanding the regional political organization of the 1000-1600 CE residents of the Southern Appalachians. His study was based on the straight-line distance between major centers that where earthen mounds were located. I became interested in whether cost distance in time would be a better fit both theoretically and statistically, but this required simulating both overland travel and canoe travel. This paper will share how this analysis was done, how I came up with estimates for time required for canoe travel, and how this was implemented in GIS. Further, I will describe how this line of investigation led me to the realization that not only were the political groups in question highly structured over space, but that this organization was both highly intentional and recognizable by the participants
