Archeology: A Unique Prehistoric Colony in Western Wisconsin
Thursday, March 13 • 9 am – 11:30 am
One thousand years ago, when Effigy Mound builders ruled southern Wisconsin, a colony of Mississippian people from America’s first city at Cahokia ventured up the Mississippi River to establish a colony at the Trempealeau Bluffs. Ongoing archaeological excavations have revealed much about how, when and why these foreigners came to Wisconsin and what happened to the indigenous people as a consequence.
