Holmes deal with mounds & earthworks and aboriginal pottery in the eastern U.S. Thomas's work was instrumental in disproving the racially motivated "Mound-builder Myth," demonstrating conclusively that these were the work of Native Americans and not some other lost race. Holmes work was the first attempt to classify prehistoric pottery in the eastern U.S. Both are very important, even seminal, works in the new field of North American archaeology with many wonderful color & B&W plates and maps.
