On the Cover
This painting by Martin Pate (www.pateart.com) greets visitors as they enter the museum at the Poverty Point State Historic Site in northern Louisiana. It represents an aerial view of the site as it might have appeared 3500 years ago (for full image see page 64). This Late Archaic Period site still holds many mysteries, and in June 2014 became a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Its main mound (at center) is only surpassed in size by Monk’s Mound at Cahokia. For the full story see page 61.
