A Road Scholar Program by William R. Iseminger
The remains of the most sophisticated prehistoric native civilization north of Mexico are preserved in Illinois, just 15 miles from modern-day St. Louis. This slide presentation features an overview of the Native American cultures leading up to the time of Cahokia, then a specific discussion of Cahokia’s culture and primary features, such as Monks Mound, Mound 72, the Stockade Wall, and Woodhenge. The presentation will also cover the site’s current facilities, exhibits and programs, and will include views of mounds, excavations, reconstructions, artifacts, maps, and artists’ renderings of Cahokia Mounds.
