Sunday at the Mounds

Sunday, August 7, 2022
Bring a folding chair and join us under the trees outside the Great Circle. We’ll talk about these fascinating topics and then enter the Great Circle to gather on Eagle Mound and experience this important ceremonial site. You’ll have a chance to hold Hopewell-era stone tools, flint points, and pottery shards, along with reproductions of effigy pipes and copper artifacts.
