Further excavation turned up tools similar to those used by the once-local Tequesta people, and radio-carbon testing suggests the site is nearly 3, years old.

The application of combined techniques such as aerial imagery, sediment coring, down-hole magnetic susceptibility, and mechanized trench excavation can provide critical information on landscape formation and mound stratigraphy, specifically if they can be used to understand mound sequences and development.

This paper reviews preliminary findings from recent coring and test excavations at the. The two tested mounds were found to have been made at the sites of tree-tip, where pit-and-knoll disturbed soils were remolded into the ring-shaped form.

Near-surface soil horizons in the area that would become the mound were also used for the earthen fraction of the rings, and their excavation may have served as the initial marking out of the mound space that would be maintained with subsequent use. Using a surveyors transit the MPM team mapped 90 mounds in three clusters around Trempealeau Bay All but a linear and two animal-shaped “effigy” mounds were round or conical in form.

Archaeologists at the time were trying to determine the age of the mounds and if the different shapes were constructed and used for similar purposes. The prevailing archaeological interpretation of the site is that it was first occupied by the Fourche Maline culture (AD –) and developed into a significant village.

Numerous earthworks were constructed, including at least four (and perhaps six) mounds and a raised causeway that connected two of the larger mounds.
