Damn and blast! My folks are watching a show, and my iPad has an old version of adobe flash. No updates for me, since I cannot remember my access information for my iPad. Damn. And blast.

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!

It's probably about the known Cahokia Mounds historic site, so it's not a new find per se. Until we see what, if any, claims they're making, I wouldn't automatically discount the findings. My guess is they've used more modern imaging technology than has been used in the past, and will put forth some theories/speculation based on what they've found.

Here's a link to an article about the Cahokia Mounds complex:

Linky Winky



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.

Those were just big gardening mounds to plant their food so the deer and buffalo wouldn't eat it. In Egypt they built the gardening mounds so the goats and sheep wouldn't eat it. The goats climb mountains, what a dumb Idea that was. That's why they abandoned all the pyramids.


Well, it sounds more rational than building a mountain for religious purposes.

These are burial mounds built by Native Americans, They are scattered all over the southeastern portion of the US. We have 3 alone in one location in Georgia . I think these are of the Cree nation.
Good these are getting attention....

Could you send me a zoetrope or something?

My antiquated device might play that without an update being required.

I knew I could count on you to go into the way back.

Would you settle for it done in a camera obscura style?

Settle for it?

Nay good sir, but I shall be delighted by it instead! It has been some time since I last gazed upon a camera obscura image. The last time was when I was up a hill in Wales, looking down upon the town of Aberystwyth. Gorgeous place. They had a lookout spot there with one rigged up. Wonderful day out, highly recommend the fish and chips in that town as well. Very fresh.

***APPLAUSE***

I grew up just a handful of miles from Cahokia. Went there several times. There was much more than now meets the eye when it was built. Even as an adult, it was different than when I went as a kid. They roped off areas you used to be able to go, and the museum had removed several pieces. I can't imagine what it looks like now.
