Facility:Spiro Mounds
Description:The mounds at Spiro, Oklahoma, are among the most important archaeological remains in the United States. A remarkable assemblage of artifacts from the mounds shows that prehistoric Spiro people created a sophisticated culture which influenced the entire Southeast. There was an extensive trade network, a highly developed religious center, and a political system which controlled the region. Located on a bend of the Arkansas River, the site was a natural gateway between societies to the east and the west, a gateway at which Spiro people exerted their influence. Yet much of the Spiro culture is still a mystery, including the reasons for the decline and abandonment of the site.

I visited Spiro Mounds (several times) when I was in elementary school, many years ago. I really enjoyed it, it was educational & very interesting! It was fascinating to learn of how they lived & functioned as a society. I look forward to taking my kids there someday soon!
