The main mound at Aztalan, comprised of two basic levels. The main mound is one of three primary mounds (two of which have been restored), and numerous smaller mounds. Many of these mounds had been destroyed and cleared to make way for farming, resulting in untold losses in archaeological data. Aztalan was finally rescued by archaeologists and the State of Wisconsin earlier in this century. The stairs seen here have been added to show where the original stairs were positioned.

Books



Lost Cities of North and Central America
David Hatcher Childress
Rating:
I enjoy Childress' books mainly because he comes across as very honest, although he engages in too much speculation to be taken at face value. Overall I find his books a very engaging read, and the speculative aspect, though often unscientific, is very entertaining. Moreover, the amazing amount of study and travel he has done brings a certain amount of credibility to his work. If you are a maverick archaeologist, Childress' Lost Cities series is for you.

Wisconsin's Past and Present: A Historical Atlas
Wisconsin Cartographers Guild, William Cronon
Despite Wisconsin's rich history, no historical atlas has been produced in the state since 1878. The Historical Atlas of Wisconsin, created by the Wisconsin Cartographers' Guild, has filled this void with a fascinating and colorful portrait of the state's complex development. This useful and entertaining guide, produced to mark 150 years of statehood, provides a lasting resource for map lovers and history buffs of all ages, and anyone interested in Wisconsin's heritage. The Atlas features more than 100 pages of historic and geographic data, including full-color maps, descriptive text, photos, and illustrations.
