Mound 69

This small mound is part of what is known today as the Rouch mound group in the southwest segment of the Cahokia site. It appears on Patrick’s map as a small, conical mound, but today it is only a very slight elevation, and it appears as a light mark in aerial photographs. Nothing else is known of this mound other than its location and that it was visible enough to be mapped in Patrick’s time, the air photos confirming its location. The Rouch mounds were included in some of the earliest photographs of the Cahokia site, indicating that at least over the last 40 to 50 years they have not been altered much in shape.
