Description

Reprinted from the January 1905 number of the Iowa Journal of History and Politics. Pages clean except for some foxing along the bottom edges and a touch of toning throughout; stapled binding is a bit rust-stained, but secure; soft cover shows several short tears, creases, and chips around the edges, but is otherwise sound. 23pp. Certain prehistoric earthworks in Iowa hod not been given appropriate scientific study, and at the time this article was written, some silly myths persisted concerning their origins and purpose. This article delineates the questions, the apparent archaeological finds to date, and the further study needed, but suffers itself from a few nineteenth-century presumptions that make it almost more interesting as an item from the history of early European-American anthropology.
