jan 1, 800 - Mississippian Mound Culture Developed in the American Eastern Midwest

Description:

In North America, a number of urban settlements and satellite villages began to form a loose trading network in the Mississippian River Valley around the year 800.

Their shared culture was based largely on mound-building whereby large platforms made of earth were created and served as a base for constructing houses, temples and other buildings. Their agriculture consisted mostly of growing maize and their metalwork was limited to hammering natural deposits of copper into plates or decorations. Society consisted of chiefdoms, eventually forming the most complex level of society that had existed at that time in North America.

This culture spread from the Mississippi Valley in the south all the way through the Eastern Midwest and even to the shores of the Great Lakes at what-is-now Western New York and Western Pennsylvania.
