Our fourth-graders had a fabulous experience at the Pinson Mounds Archeofest on Friday, September 15.  We rotated among the following stations:  Firebuilding/Flintknapping, Prehistoric Tools & Weapons, Woodland Games, Birds of Prey, Woodland Period Demonstration, and Museum Exhibits.  The highlight of the trip was climbing the stairs to the top of the 72' high Sauls' Mound, which was constructed between 1 - 300 A.D.  It is the second-highest mound in the United States.  We also enjoyed an added bonus:  a young man of Cherokee descent, named Seth, who was at the Fest to help his grandfather, just happened to walk through the museum when we were there.  He went into the auditorium with us, upon request from a Pinson Mounds worker, and shared his knowledge of his peoples' history and way of life.  He answered many questions from our students.  We appreciate the time he spent with us, as we believe not every group was able to hear from him.  It was a wonderful day!
