Kolomoki Mound State Park

Kolomoki Mound State Park - Excavated mound near Park museum

Most mounds in the South (and I believe the Kolomoki Mound in the picture is in Georgia) are constructed of soil, yet here we see large blocks of stone. Unfortunately, the sign gives no indication how the mound was built. It would be nice to see a photo of the mound before it was torn apart, which might show how the stones were used.

The large pile of rocks in the photo came from Mound E, and were excavated by William Sears in the 1940s. His report is widely available on Many mounds in this part of GA do contain some rocks.
