Who were the TRUE first Americans?
Posted by Crystina
A gentleman came into my job the other day and we began discussing the burial mounds in Moundsville, WV. He had some very interesting information I thought might be interesting to share with everyone else at camp, Moundsville is about an hour and a half away from Morgantown and might make for an interesting field trip. I guarantee you never learned any of this in school. Who are the "real" Native Americans? Find out about the oldest prehistoric city in America. The mound builders, Aboriginals, and other names these people were called.
