The Beginning

Growing up in the Midwest I have acquired a fascination with its unique prehistoric past.  I am intrigued by the story of the Mound Builders.  It is a beautiful and unsung history of a civilization that rivaled other European cities of that time.  

The mystery that surrounds and the lessons that might be learned as a once thriving metropolis was abandoned in such a short period of time.  The legacy they left behind with countless mounds which dotted the prairies.  

It is not known how many mounds have been destroyed over the years.  Few mounds are protected and preserved.  It is my hope that a growing awareness of the importance of preserving such a unique history will continue to grow and someday find the answers as to what happened to this unique group of people.
