"Myths and the Moundbuilders"
DER Documentary
Throughout most of the nineteenth century, it was believed that the tens of thousands of earthen mounds that dotted the central United States were engineering feats created by a mysterious, lost race - a race that had been destroyed by the less civilized Indians. By the late 1880s, it was becoming clear that the mounds were actually built by ancestors of the numerous native American groups that still inhabited the central states, such as the Natchez.

The Anthropology Society is an organized, college-sponsored student club which provides the college community with a greater appreciation of the discipline in a friendly, peer-oriented environment. The goal of the Society is to enable students to gain knowledge about and explore the various sub-fields of Anthropology so as to decide which particular one suits them best. To these ends, the Society sponsors a series of interesting events:
  • Presentations by our faculty members and guest speakers on their area of research
  • Thought -provoking films and subsequent discussions
  • Field trips to museums and similar institutions
  • Discussions about job opportunities, internships and graduate study.
Students need not be Anthropology majors or minors to become members or participate in the club's activities; all students are welcome and are encouraged to attend our events. Most of our events provide refreshments and CLIQ points for those students in need of fulfilling this requirement. Members of the Society also participate in end of semester departmental parties and picnics, which provide students with an opportunity to interact with faculty members in a social setting. In order to learn more about the Anthropology Society, please feel free to e-mail us at: and let your journey begin into a truly fascinating and exciting field of study!
