In this thesis, I present a spatial analysis of the main residential area, Unit 6 at Chucalissa, a prehistoric Mississippian period site located in Southwest Tennessee. Unit 6 excavations were conducted from 1940-1987, and a data set was digitized for spatial analysis. The goals of this spatial analysis include intra-structural patterning, inter-structure, and the functional aspects of residential structures found within Unit 6. Of particular interest is House 10, which contains specialized artifacts. This thesis will contribute to our understanding of the culture dynamics during the Middle and Late Mississippian periods in the Central Mississippi River Valley. .
