Artifacts

These are objects

made by a human being.

They include art, diaries, tools and

clothing made by people

of any time and place. 

Archaeologists make hypotheses

about a society from these

objects left behind. 

Different interpretations and

subsequent conclusions

shape our understanding

of the past.

 Augmented Reality

COMING SOON!  An Augmented Reality Tour of the Cahokia Mounds Historic Site will be  available in the Fall of 2021.  In addition, an app will be produced for schools that components that complement the Project Arch-ae-o investigations and incorporates a number of the 3D models. Students will be able to see Mississippian artifacts and reconstructions on the playground, gym or backyard. A tablet or smartphone is needed

to access the experience.
