The term mound builders is applied to various ancient North American cultures that existed between 1000 B.C. and 1000 A.D. Early 16th century Spanish explorers documented encounters with peoples living in these areas. Unfortunately by the time American settlers reached these places, some 200 years later, the Native-Americans had no knowledge of, or serious connection to, these ancient cultures.
This book explores the often ill-founded historical speculation about who built these massive mounds. The Mound Builders also examines the archaeological evidence that tells us almost all we know about the pre-Columbian Native-American cultures that built these structures.
