Compare and contrast Mississippian culture with the cradles of civilization in the Old World (such as the earliest civilization in ancient Egypt). Wikipedia is a good place to start: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mississippian_culture. Wiki notes that the Mississippians had no writing system or stone architecture, so they would be excluded from consideration of an early civilization (features include class-based society, agriculture, animal husbandry, public buildings, metallurgy, and monumental architecture). Use academic sources, books and articles, and perhaps suggest that while the lack of stone might mean that no monumental buildings survive for archaeology, the lack of a writing system is a step that should not be ignored – as it facilitates the growth of trade as well as myth, which strengthens the other pillars of early civilization.
