Indian Mounds of Wisconsin

Indian mounds are part of Wisconsin's landscape. Beginning about 800 B.C., Native people built 15,000-20,000 such earthworks, frequently in groups along lakes and rivers and on hilltops. The most mysterious and fascinating are "effigies," burial mounds sculpted in the form of birds, animals, supernatural beings, and humans. We investigate: Who built the mounds? When were they built? Why were they built? Course includes field trip to a prominent area mound group.
