Long Description:
Prehistoric earthworks by mound builder cultures are common in the Midwest. However, mounds in the shape of mammals, birds, or reptiles, known as effigies, only exist in southern Wisconsin, northeast Iowa, and small parts of Minnesota and Illinois. The one exception to this is the great serpent mound in south-eastern Ohio.
Type: Burial Mounds
