Thanks Marty, long time no see. Glad you made it to the Front page news. I love Archaeology so it's nice to see some articles posted about it sometimes. We have some Native American Mounds here in Wisconsin. I loked that Caldron one the best. Almost looks like a hole from a meteor strike long ago.

Love Archaeology!:) I live within 90 miles of Cahokia, IL. & I like reading about U.K. moundworks as well!
