Spirit of Place: The Early Woodland Mound Builders of Cedarburg.

 

May 21 through June 10, 2016

 

Spirit of Place: The Early Woodland Mound Builders of Cedarburg, is an exhibit held at the Cedarburg Cultural Center from May 21-June 12, 2016 which will reexamine the site of one of Wisconsin's oldest known conical burial mounds. The site was excavated in Cedarburg, Wisconsin in 1968 by avocational archaeologist, Howard Van Langen, under the direction of Thomas F. Kehoe of the Milwaukee Public Museum. The exhibit will highlight recently discovered excavation photographs and a select few cultural artifacts excavated in context from the site. Radio carbon dates taken from Mound 2 of the site date back to roughly 480 B.C. making it  one of the oldest burial mounds examined in Wisconsin. The exhibit will also shed new understanding into Early Woodland Period conical burial mound ritualism and will provide our guests with a unique window to the past.

 

 

 

Kurt Sampson, President of the Wisconsin Archeological Society, will give a public lecture on the Hilgen Spring Mounds Site on

Thursday, May 26th at 6:30pm at the Cedarburg Cultural Center.
