Mound 68

Just to the south of Mound 67 is what appears to be a flat-topped platform mound, Mound 68. The McAdams Map lists a height of 15 feet(4.6 meters) for this mound and Peterson-McAdams, 20 feet (6.1 meters). Using a 129-meter (423.2-foot) base line, the 1966 UWM Map shows a height of 7.4 meters (24.3 feet), a north-south dimension of 72 meters (236.2 feet), and an east-west dimension of 73 meters (239.5 feet). Moorehead refers only indirectly to Mound 68 in a description of the village or habitation area at the Cahokia site.
