Mound D Construction
The original mound consisted of five log-lined burials. The logs were paced upright and mounded with dirt to support them. The structure was then covered with rocks. Another burial was placed next to this construction in a rock slab and log grave. Both the the large burial and the individual interment were covered with dirt. Layering of many burial, cremation and log scaffolding continued for several layers, including a mass cremation atop an eventual platform construction. Many burial goods, accompanied by a variety of burial techniques, indicate a series of ceremonial practices here.
