Indian Mounds of Mississippi

The pre-Columbian world of the American Southeast was a place teeming with a number of Native American groups, some of which left very discernable traces of an incipient urbanism that would be of great interest to later generations, including many archeologists and scholars. Working in collaboration with the Southeast Archaeological Center and the Natchez Trace Parkway, the National Park Service has created this online guide to the most prominent publicly-owned earthen structures created by the various Native American groups of the region. Visitors to the site will want to begin by reading the brief introductory essay, then continuing through to the interactive map of Mississippi that features profiles of each 11 mound sites. For visitors who wish to learn more, there is a thorough bibliography provided, along with a list of links related to archaeology, preservation, and tourism in Mississippi.
