Ancient China

A number of cultural traits are recognized as being characteristic of the Mississippians. Although not all Mississippian peoples practiced all of the following activities, they were distinct from their ancestors in adoption of some or all of these traits-The construction of large, truncated earthwork pyramid mounds, or platform mounds. Such mounds were usually square, rectangular, or occasionally circular. Structures (domestic houses, temples, burial buildings, or other) were usually constructed atop such mounds.- In most places, the development of Mississippian culture coincided with adoption of comparatively large-scale, intensive maize agriculture, which supported larger populations and craft specialization.-The adoption and use of riverine (or more rarely marine) shells as tempering agents in their shell tempered pottery.-Widespread trade networks extending as far west as the Rockies, north to the Great Lakes, south to the Gulf of Mexico, and east to the Atlantic Ocean.

The mississippi rivers starts at Lake Itasca, Minnesota and ends at the Gulf of Mexico. It runs through Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, Illinois, Missouri, Kentucky,Tennessee, Arkansas, Mississippi, and Louisiana before emptying into the Gulf of Mexico. At the headwaters of the Mississippi, the average surface speed of the mississippi river’s water is near 1.2 miles per hour. The mississippi river is approximately 10,000 years old and got created at the end of the last ice age. It was discovered by Hernando de Soto on may 5th 1541 .The river is 2,466 miles long.

In a sense, the history of Mississippi is the history of America. It begins in prehistoric times, when vast herds of buffalo trampled and “traced” out a route known as the Natchez Trace. This same path would later be traveled by Native Americans, traders, missionaries and early pioneers. Chickasaw and Choctaw, Scotch and Irish, slaves and settlers have all called Mississippi home. Mississippi grew up with our nation. When the Mississippi Territory became the 20th state to join the union in 1817, it was comprised largely of the Chickasaw and Choctaw nations. With State came an influx of Europeans – largely English, Scottish and Irish – who sought opportunity in what was then the frontier of a rapidly growing country. The Magnolia State continued to leave its imprint on America, playing a pivotal role in the Civil War and later serving as the setting for some of the landmark events in the struggle for Civil Rights. Today, Mississippi is regarded as a unique and rich intersection of history, architecture, commerce, culture and the arts.
