Overview:

Aztalan state park contains Wisconsin's most important archaeological site. It showcases an ancient Middle-Mississippian village that thrived between A.D. 1000 and 1300.

Archaeologists say that the occupants had cultural traditions in common with Cahokia, a large Middle-Mississippian settlement near East St. Louis, Illinois. The people who settled Aztalan built large, flat-topped pyramidal mounds and a stockade around their village. They hunted, fished, and farmed on the floodplain of the Crawfish River. Portions of the stockade and two mounds have been reconstructed in the park.
