Early-Middle Mississippian settlements in the hinterlands of West Tennessee have largely gone unstudied. The void in settlement data leaves a gap in understanding Early-Middle Mississippian settlements within the Mid-South region. A multi-staged research design at the Denmark Site (40MD85) in Madison County, Tennessee was employed to determine a settlement system at Denmark. Denmark was originally thought to be a Vacant Mound Center that did not support an associated habitation, but topographic mapping, LiDAR data, magnetometry survey, and targeted excavation reveal that the Denmark mound group represents a sizeable settlement.
