Many of these mounds have been excavated in the past, and the information gleaned from their contents has given archaeologists a picture of Missouri that dates back at least 12,000 years to the Woodland Period and earlier. In 1989, during a construction project along Forum Boulevard, a mound was hit. Carbon dating showed she had lived in the Early Woodland Period, between 850 B.
