You Are There 1939: Exploring Angel Mounds

The Indiana Historical Society invites guests to enter a recreation of the archaeological dig at Angel Mounds in Southern Indiana, where they’ll talk to workers on the brink of uncovering the site of a once-thriving Mississippian town. Guests will meet actors portraying Glenn Black and his amateur team of temporary workers. See original artifacts and tools, a recreation of a Mississippian home and form your own theory about what became of the settlement.
