An Archaeological Exploration of Illinois A.D. 100
Two thousand years ago, a new way of Native American life appeared around present-day Havana, Illinois. Based on hunting and gathering and some cultivation of native plants, the Havana-Hopewell way of life consisted of villages along the Illinois River and the construction of large mounds of earth that served as cemeteries. Within three centuries, this way of life disappeared. Join us to explore this remarkable chapter in Illinois history.
