Sky-watchers of Ancient America: Celestial Alignments of American Indian Mounds, Structures, and Rock Circles

A Road Scholar Program by William Iseminger

This program begins with an examination of the famous Cahokia Mounds site in southern Illinois and its Woodhenge sun circles, then takes a look at other mound sites in the east, rock circle “Medicine Wheels” in the Great Plains, and Pueblo structures in the Southwest. Alignments with the sun, moon, and certain bright stars indicate calendric functions for these ancient structures.

This event is free and open to the public. For more information, please contact Linda Summbers at 618.327.3827.
