Native American societies in Wisconsin built more effigy mounds than did those in any other region of North America . . . between 15 and 20 thousand of them, thousands of which remain. Wisconsin Historical Society Archaeologist Amy Rosebrough talks about some recent discoveries about the Wisconsin mound culture. Along the way, we’ll get a glimpse of what Wisconsin was like a thousand and more years ago, and find out how this area was connected to other parts of the country by trade and religion.
