Moundbuilders: Ancient Architects of North America

Opening June 24, 2017

Merle-Smith Galleries, First Floor

You might be familiar with some of the more famous monuments around the globeā€”the Great Pyramids in Egypt; Stonehenge in England; Machu Picchu in Peru. But did you know we have our own impressive monuments right here in the United States? Some even older than the pyramids, these spectacular earthworks give us glimpses into more than 5,000 years of Native North American history. Moundbuilders explores the fascinating story of Native American moundbuilding through a variety of photographs, artifacts, archival materials, and excavation records.
