The presenter will be Dr. Robert Birmingham, noted Archaeologist, UW Senior Lecturer, Former State Archaeologist and author of Spirits of Earth and, with Leslie Eisenberg, Indian Mounds of Wisconsin.
His talk will uncover the secrets of the mid woodland (c. 300 b.c. to 400 a.d.) conical/burial mounds of which Lake Park’s mound is the last remaining example in the city of Milwaukee, and the later effigy mounds, built in the image of birds, animals and even humans, found throughout southern Wisconsin. What do these earthen works tell us of the people who built them and their culture?
