Pinson Mounds- A Hopewell Pilgrimage Center


Pinson Mounds State Park, Tennessee

Brad Lepper, of the Ohio Historical Society Archaeological Blog, has written an exciting post about Pinson Mounds "the largest Middle Woodland mound complex in the Southeast".

"Pinson Mounds is located in western Tennessee and it was the largest Middle Woodland mound complex in the Southeast. Covering an area of about 400 acres, the site included a large, semi-circular enclosure, at least 13 mounds, including five rectangular platform mounds, and several associated ritual activity areas."
