Mississippians used new construction techniques for buildings. For one thing, they recessed their house floors two to three feet into the ground, making the basin semi- subterranean. Instead of digging a hole for each upright post as had been done for thousands of years, they dug a narrow trench along the basin edge where they wanted to build a wall. Roof poles were lashed to the building walls with fiber cord.
