Explore the effigy mounds in the Midwestern United States made by Native People (approximately between 350-1300 CE). Although we will take a quick look at the mounds in the Ohio region made by the Hopewellian people, our focus will be on the mounds made in the southwest Wisconsin area and bordering states such as Effigy Mounds National Monument in Iowa. We will also focus on the Four Lakes region of Madison, Wisconsin, which is the capital of the state of Wisconsin and seen as the Mound Builder’s capital as well.
