AUGUST PROGRAM

Tuesday August 11th, 6:45 – 9:00 p.m.

MONUMENTAL MOUNDS OF THE

MISSISSIPPI VALLEY


Megan Kassabaum, Ph.D., Asst. Professor of Anthropology at the University of Pennsylvania, will share fascinating insights into ancient American mound building.


Stretching over 2,500 miles from Minnesota to the Gulf of Mexico, the Mississippi River has been called “the Nile of North America.”

Like its counterpart in Egypt, the Mississippi Valley is among the richest archaeological regions on the continent.


Home to thousands of earthen mounds, it contains both the oldest and the most elaborate monumental architecture in North America. Based on 15 seasons of fieldwork conducted on mound sites across the Eastern United States, this program explores the 5,000-year history of mound building, from the earliest sites built by mobile hunter-gatherers to Cahokia, the first city in North America, built about 1000 years ago.


Megan will speak to us via Zoom; you will receive an invitation about a week ahead. Guests are welcome, invite your friends!
