Wisconsin's Mound Builders

November, 23, 2014.
Wisconsin Public Radio, NPR, has a new episode of University of the Air about Wisconsin's ancient peoples and the mounds they built.

"For hundreds of years, Wisconsin was the center of a thriving culture of effigy mound builders, but what was the significance of those earthen structures and what kind of life did the builders have? In the hour to come, Historical Society archaeologist Amy Rosebrough will guide us through some of Wisconsin’s mounds and go through some of the recent discoveries about them. We’ll also get some ideas to the connections between the Wisconsin cultures and their trading partners in other parts of the country. "
