Albany Mounds State Historic Site. South Cherry Street, P.O. Box 184 Albany, Illinois 61230 Daily dawn to dusk 309-887-4340 The Albany site is a large Middle Woodland mound and village complex dating between 200 B.C. and A.D. 300. It originally contained 96 burial mounds, making it one of the largest mound groups in Illinois. Material excavated from the site shows that the residents participated in the Hopewell trade network, with items ranging from conch shells from the Gulf Coast to obsidian from the Rocky Mountains. These and other goods, such as pipes made from Rock River valley pipestone, show that Albany was a center of the Hopewell culture, which extended across the eastern third of North America. Visitors can view the mounds along a mown path.

Pyramid Mound

Angel Mounds State Historic Site is located on the Ohio River in Vanderburgh County, Indiana adjacent to Evansville. It is part of the Indiana Department of Natural Resources, Division of Indiana State Museums and Historic Sites. It is one of 16 state museums and historic sites in Indiana and is listed as a National Historic Landmark. It is named after the Angel Family who settled in this location along the Ohio River in the early 1800s.

For over a thousand years, Southwestern Indiana was home to many Native Americans. Today, Angel Mounds State Historic Site is nationally recognized as one of the best preserved prehistoric Native American sites in the United States. From 1100 to 1450 A. D., a town on this site was home to people of the Middle Mississippian culture, who engaged in hunting and farming on the rich bottom lands of the Ohio River. Several thousand people lived in this town protected by a stockade made of wattle and daub. Because Angel Mounds was a chiefdom (the home of the chief) it was the regional center of a large community that grew outward from it for many miles.

This settlement was the largest known town of its time in Indiana, but the Mississippian people eventually deserted it. No one today knows why. Fortunately, preservation and archaeological efforts at Angel Mounds State Historic Site offer a glimpse into this highly developed culture of the distant past. For 60 years, this living museum has told the story of one pre-contact Native American culture on the Ohio River.

Stonehenge in Lake Michigan? Potentially pre-historic stone formation discovered deep underwater


Updated 8:36 AM CST, Thu, Jan 8, 2009
Related Topics: Mark Holley

Stones in a circular formation along with possible ancient carvings have been discovered deep below the surface of Lake Michigan.

The iconic Stonehenge in the UK is one of the most famous prehistoric monuments in the world, but it is not the only stone formation of its kind. Similar stone alignments have been found throughout England, Ireland, Scotland, and Wales… and now, it seems, in Lake Michigan.

According to BLDGBLOG, in 2007, Mark Holley, professor of underwater archeology at Northwestern Michigan College, discovered a series of stones arranged in a circle 40 feet below the surface of Lake Michigan. One stone outside the circle seems to have carvings that resemble a mastodon—an elephant-like animal that went extinct about 10,000 years ago.

Archaeologists had been hired to survey the Lake's floor near Traverse City, Michigan, and examine old boat wrecks with a sonar device. They discovered sunken boats and cars and even a Civil War-era pier. But among these expected finds was a potentially-prehistoric surprise.

"When you see it in the water, you're tempted to say this is absolutely real," Holley told reporters at the time. "But that's what we need the experts to come in and verify."

Specialists involved in the case are skeptical and want to gather more info before making a judgment. The problem?

"They want to actually see it," said Holley. "Experts in petroglyphs generally don't dive, so we're running into a bit of a stumbling block there."

The formation, if authenticated, wouldn't be completely out of place. Stone circles and other petroglyph sites are located in the area.

While Chicago has an interesting and colorful history of its own, it's exciting to think that a North American version of Stonehenge could be sitting just over 200 miles away.
