Front
The Pocahontas site consists of two mounds and an
associated village area. Mound A is a rectangular platform
mound currently 20 feet tall, built between AD 750 and
1500. Excavations located structural features on the mound
surface, as well as numerous ceramic, stone, and bone
artifacts. Mound B, roughly 650 yards northeast of Mound
A, is a conical burial mound. Excavations in 1926-27
recovered numerous artifacts, including an effigy pipe and
stone celt. Mound B was constructed ca. AD 1200-1600.
