Overview

The archaeology enthusiast will find this versatile guide contains treasure trove of information. A generous collection of black and white photos are scattered throughout this handy book, along with detailed maps, lodging and dining suggestions, and a broad listing of additional local points of interest. The volume's brief introductory chapters offer an overview of the archaeology of the Upper Midwest and explore the symbols and meanings of intricate rock art and effigy mounds.
Eighty-five dedicated archaeology parks exist in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, and northern Illinois. Wisconsin alone contains sixty-three of these outstanding parks. From Effigy National Monument in Iowa to the privately held Henschel Mounds in Wisconsin, this magnitude of managed sites is exceeded only by the abundance of archaeology sites found in the American Southwest.
