Those Mysterious Mound Builders - Episode 4

Those Mysterious Mound Builders - Episode 4

In this episode we look at the Mound Builder Myth in some detail. We discuss the history of the myth, the alternative explanations for the mounds, how Cyrus Thomas proved the mounds were built by Native Americans, and why the idea that the mounds were built by Europeans still persists today. Also, we highly encourage you to take your local mounds to lunch, and, go visit them today!
