The 4,000-acre complex preserves the remnants of the largest prehistoric settlement north of Mexico, a walled city that flourished on the floodplain of the Mississippi River 10 centuries ago. Covering an area more than five miles square, Cahokia dwarfs the ancient pueblos of New Mexico’s Chaco Canyon and every other ruin left by the storied Anasazi of the American Southwest. Yet despite its size and importance, archaeologists still don’t understand how this vast, lost culture began, how it ended, and what went on in between.

It is called Cahokia.
Been there, not that impressive compared to real pyramids.
But cool none the less.

It's hard to tell just how wide spread and sophisticated they once were now only with grass covered mounds.
There literally was more than meets the present eye once upon a time.
A lot more!
