Beginning with the pioneering excavation of a prehistoric mound by Thomas Jefferson, John Hale (University of Louisville Department of Anthropology) discusses the work of researchers who have brought to light thousands of ancient sites and artifacts that shed light on the lives – and deaths – of the first Americans.  At sites like Serpent Mound in Ohio and Cahokia in Illinois, extraordinary effigy mounds and other earthworks bear witness to the beliefs and the artistic genius of these first Americans.  This lecture is presented by the Archaeological Institute of America—Toledo Society and the Toledo Museum of Art.
