Indian mounds of North America

"Ancient Earthworks of Eastern North America"
Don Burmeister photography exhibition
October 3 through November 8, 2003
Opening Reception: Friday October 3, 6 to 8 PM

"Scattered through out the Eastern and Midwestern United States are thousands of ancient earthworks, structures that in some cases are as old as the pyramids of Egypt and that in many cases predate the arrival of Europeans by hundreds of years. These "Indian Mounds" and 'Effigy Mounds" numbered in the tens of thousands when the first European settlers arrived. Over the years many of the mounds were destroyed, some were simply worn down by years of plowing, while others were consciously removed from the landscape to make way for the advance of roads, houses and indeed, parking lots."
