Fantastic idea to take a comprehensive road trip to these many sites. I can only hope that you might also make a book of your findings as well as using it as a spur for your art.
What an impressive undertaking! I hope that you are able to visit Wickliffe, Kincaid, Emerald (in IL)and Cahokia during your trip. Can't wait to hear about your adventures!
Thanks for the encouragement! We're focusing on the southern mound sites and will return through Tennessee and Arkansas. Cahokia is amazing, and they have a great museum. Taylor Keene recommended Timothy Pauketat's Cahokia: Ancient American's Great City on the Mississippi and it's proving a really good read.
This is such a cool site! Are yall planning on publishing an article?
