Hopewell in Illinois

If you're not following Greg Little on Twitter (X), you're missing lots of interesting posts. Here's another one:

The Gramercy Park Mounds in East Dubuque, IL, AKA "Dunleith Mounds." There were 26 Hopewell Culture mounds in this 3-acre park. The 5th Annual Report of the Bureau of Ethnology (1887) devoted several pages to their excavation. A skeleton over 7' in height was found along with other oddities.
