The University of Wisconsin Press has published a new edition of the popular Indian Mounds of Wisconsin written by archaeologists and mound experts Robert Birmingham and Amy Rosebrough. The L.D. Fargo Public library, 120 E. Madison St. Lake Mills, will host a book discussion and signing by the authors on October 24 at 7:00 PM. The event is co-sponsored by the Friends of Azataln State Park.
First published in 2000, the new edition contains much new and updated material and images. The book includes exciting new research and information on the spectacular effigy mounds, an archaeological world wonder, and the great Mississippian civilization as represented by the ancient town of Aztalan near Lake Mills, among other topics. The cover of the book features a photograph of platform mounds at Aztalan State park taken by Dan Seurer of Lake Mills. A lengthy appendix provides an expanded list of ancient Indian mound sites that can be easily visited by the public. Books will be available for purchase at the event for $25.
