Description

The Spiro Mounds Archaeological Center is the only prehistoric Native American archaeological site in Oklahoma open to the public.  One of the most important American Indian sites in the nation, the Spiro Mounds are world renowned because of the incredible amount of art and artifacts dug from the Craig Mound, the site's only burial mound.  Home to rich cultural resources, the Spiro Mounds were created and used by Caddoan speaking Indians between 850 and 1450 AD.  This area of eastern Oklahoma became the seat of ancient Mississippian culture and the Spiro Mounds grew from a small farming village to one of the most important cultural centers in what later became the United States.

THIS IS AWESOME!!!!!!!


From Jacque Callaway on 06/30/13

I recently took my two sons-4&7-to Spiro for the Summer solstice walk and they can't wait to go back! It is an amazing place to appreciate the people who were here before us and their way of life. The tour was interesting and the archaeologist who gives the tour is amazing. It is a small drive for a great history trip and I am sure we will be back for the Autumn equinox walk!
