History unearthed at Caddoan Mounds State Park (Texas)





Centuries ago, prehistoric Native Americans built imposing mounds and domelike houses across East Texas.

One of those sites is now the Caddoan Mounds State Historic Park where scientists are uncovering the past. Researchers have found a new way to explore beneath the earth without lifting a shovel.

"Culturally this is an important site. It's important to the people of Texas and it’s important interpreting American culture … The more we know about these folks, the better we are in explaining and learning about our history," manager David Shirley said.
