Hi Friends: Please post information regarding Effigy Mounds or other mound sites. I am extremely fortunate live within 5 miles of this newly discovered Effigy Mound, located in Jackson County, Georgia. The county has purchased the land and will construct a public park/viewing area. This happens to ONLY 1 of 3 effigy mounds discovered East of the Mississippi River. I practice amateur Archeology when I am not at my regular income-producing source. I own land that has a mound site thereon and is estimated to be over 3,000 years old and with some possible Mayan-type influence. Our world is opening up to those who have open minds.

I went to Effigy Mounds National Monument years ago as a kid. Those mounds were earthen mounds on the west bank of the Mississippi. It is sad that so many mounds were plowed under.
GREAT point. Here in the Southeast USA, the same has occurred as well. However, many people have become interested in preserving our ancient sites, and the city/county governments are beginning to pay attention. Obviously, many developers are not so interested.

Northeast Georgia still has many earthen mound sites remaining, mainly because they are adjacent to rivers and creeks and in flood plain areas. It is extremely exciting to me to find pottery shards and arrowheads adjacent to the mounds.

That's true. I found this shell gorget and a small piece of copper when I was a kid playing in the piles of dirt in a new housing development. My Mom told me she used to find arrowheads in that field as well.

That is a very rare and amazing find. You are lucky to have found it. Post it in the North American Indian Artifacts forum. Everyone would love to see it.
