<p>The Early Woodland Period marks the beginning of the Woodland Period. It is characterized by the appearance of more settled village life, cultivated plants, the use of pottery vessels, the increasing use of exotic raw materials such as copper in the creation of ornaments, and the building of conical burial mounds. Many of these things appeared first in the Late Archaic Period, but they became more widespread and typical by the beginning of the Woodland Period.<strong>&nbsp;</strong></p>
