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

AMAZING, HARD TO BELIEVE! An AR Tour of Cahokia's Monks Mound is now available.  A tablet or smartphone is needed for students to access the experience.

COMING SOON! For those who live too far to visit the Historic Site, an app for schools is in production.  The components complement the Project Arch-ae-o investigations and incorporate a number of the 3D models. Students will be able to see Mississippian artifacts and reconstructions on the playground, gym or backyard!
