Map Description:
This map shows the cultural distributions of the Adena and Hopewell Mound cultures, who occupied the area from 1000 BCE to 200 CE and 300 BCE to 700 CE, respectively. Named for their remarkable earthworks, most of which were burial mounds, these mound cultures occupied the area bordered to the west by the Illinois and Mississippi rivers, and to the east by Lake Ontario. While both cultures had core areas in the Ohio Valley, only the Hopewell occupied the sprawled area throughout the midwest. (Flanders, 18)
