The woodland period of north american Pre-columbian cultures was roughly from 6000 b.p. to 3000 b.p. in the eastern Part of north america.

  The term "woodland period" was introduced in the 1930's as a generic header for prehistoric sites falling between the archaic hunter-gatherers and the agriculturalist Mississippian cultures. The Eastern Woodlands culture region covers what is now Eastern Canada south to the Subartic Region, the Eastern United States along to the Gulf of Mexico. This period is considered a developmental stage without any massive changes in a short time but instead having a continuous development in arrowheads, artifacts, stone and bone tools, leather crafting, textile manufacture, cultivation, and shelter construction.

  Many Woodland peoples used spears and atlatls along with bows and arrows, however, Southeastern Woodland peoples also used blowguns. It is also within this time period that the mound builders were believed to have began and came into play. This is where the elaborate highways from mounds to circular worship areas were built and they would make long pilgrimages to and from these areas using these highways. One such elaborate Highway is the Hopewell Trail in Southern Ohio. These Highways were several miles in length and would take days to travel by foot.
