Mound F: Ceremonial Platform
Archaeologist William Sears reported that Mound F measured 60 feet long by 50 feet wide and 6 feet high with a slightly oval shape. He excavated the mound in 1952. Inside the mound he found a platform made of a thin white clay over black loam film. This was covered by a 2 to 3 foot layer of red clay. this mound is a common example of an earthen structure built simply for ceremony and not for burial. Many prehistoric mounds are significant for their structure alone. Archaeologists believe that this platform was used for ceremony possibly related to the burial of bodies found in Mound E behind you.
