Wallace 1 Eric Wallace Anthropology 355 Dr. Behm Site Summary No. 3 30 March 2007 Effigy Mounds National Monument The upper Midwest is rich in prehistoric history. There are numerous artifacts and encampments that are vital to learning about prehistoric people and their cultures. Few people realize how important certain manmade features are. There are few other features as famous as effigy mounds. Effigy Mounds National Monument contains the most intact mounds in one site anywhere in the upper Midwest. Effigy Mounds National Monument is located in Iowa five miles north of McGregor and three miles north of Marquette, Iowa on Iowa State Highway 76. The park is on the Mississippi River across from Prairie Du Chien, Wisconsin. Effigy Mounds National Monument is on government owned land, which protects it from any form of development or farming. Effigy Mounds National Monument has three prehistoric sites on its property in Allamakee County and Clayton County, Iowa. The North Unit, which contains 67 mounds and the South Unit, which contains 29, are located where the counties meet on the Mississippi River.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
