Cahokia, City of the Sun
$13ea or 10 @ $87*

A thousand years ago, a civilization more sophisticated and powerful than any other in the Western Hemisphere, north of Mexico, grew and flourished in the rich Mississippi River bottom land of Southwestern Illinois.� 

These Native American people, who are called Mississippian by archaeologist, supported a population as large as 20,000 at their peak, with a wide scale agricultural economy based primarily on the cultivation of corn.The crops they grew, combined with the regions bountiful wildlife and indigenous plants, to form a stable, year around food supply.Such stability and ties to the land gave rise to the formation of permanent settlements that grew into an extensive network of communities with a regional center of metropolitan proportions. 

The remnants of the Mississippian central city, now know as Cahokia, are preserved within the 2200-acre tract that is the Cahokia Mounds State Historic Site, located eight miles east of St. Louis, Missouri.Cahokia was designated a World Heritage Site in 1982, by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization.
