While the Greeks were building temples in the Old World, incredible monuments of earth were being constructed across eastern North America. Thousands of mounds and mile upon mile of earthen embankments are part of the rich Legacy of the Mound Builders. This is the story of a lost civilization born in the heartland of America; of advanced peoples with an elaborate trade network which extended over half the continent … and this was 2,000 years ago!
