Precolumbian Mounds: the Middle Mississippi Culture
I have also been to visit some of the Mississippi culture mound sites. Angel Mounds in (very southern) Indiana:
And Chucalissa Mounds (the word means 'empty house' in Choctaw).
The mowing and reconstruction makes it easier to see the earthworks, of course, but it is hard to know how much of the site is then 'interpreted' and how much is real. Nevertheless, they are fascinating.
I am a keen amateur photographer, an avid traveler, a dedicated researcher. My main area of interest is the European middle ages although I like history and culture, especially social history, of all eras and regions. I am especially fond of good architecture and I am really, really fond of reptiles.
I usually post this blog to share highlights from my travels with family and friends. If you are a potential friend wandering by, you are welcome; any of my art or nature images posted here are available for non profit personal or study use, and if reproduced I ask that I be credited as photographer.
