“Mound F” Discovered at Poverty Point
Monday, May 12, 2014
EPPS, LOUISIANA—Sediment tests have shown that archaeologist Diana Greenlee has discovered another mound in a remote, wooded area at Poverty Point. “I wasn’t sure it was a mound because archaeologists have been working here for a hundred years, so what were the chances there was really a mound they haven’t found?” she told The News Star. The small mound, called Mound F, was likely to have been built after 1280 B.C. “It was probably one of the last earthwork projects here at the site by the Poverty Point people,” she added.
