Located near Epps, La., the site involves the largest, most complex earthwork of its age in North America with artifacts dating to 1000-2000 B.C. It has a complex of Native American ceremonial mounds built between 1700 and 700 B.C.
Teams will spend the entire month of June putting into practice techniques learned in the classroom.
The 402-acre park includes five mounds and six nested semi-elliptical earthen ridges that enclose a flat 37-acre plaza. The focus of current excavations is the buried circles in the plaza.
