from the Etowah Indian Mounds

We went to visit the Etowah Indian Mounds today.

This is the hut that they built in what they think was the style of the Etowahs around 800 years ago.

800 years ago is not really something I can wrap my head around, though I am quite familiar with red Georgia clay.

They also dug this ditch around the area to help give themselves the advantage in battle.

Lovely! :D Now you're provoking my anthropology degree to rear its head ... ;)


Lovely, Maya. These primitive cultures make us appreciate the times we live in with modern conveniences, etc. On the other hand, they worked hard to survive and very likely had less distractions than we do. Usually family ties were strong because they spent more time together but also because they depended on each other for survival.

Those colours of the red clay and the blu would make a nice yarn, no?

Looks like an educational trip and such a wonderful, sunny day too! That clay is such and amazing colour!
