A North American scientist has claimed that group of ancient mounds are among the oldest structures in North America.
The Native American mounds on Louisiana State University campus, officially known as the LSU Mounds, are among the institutions most iconic landmarks and they have captivated the minds and hearts of students and the feet of spectators for several generations. They are even a central feature in local folklore.
This week, The Baton Rouge Advocate published an almost, maybe incredible, article about an LSU Geology Professor, Brooks Ellwood, who believes the campus mounds are thousands of years older than currently believed. The professor directly challenges the mainstream story that the mounds date to around 6,100 years ago and Advocate staff writer Youssef Rddad states, that based on the material he found inside the mounds “Ellwood now estimates [the mounds are] about 11,300 years old”.
A dream prompted LSU geology professor Brooks Ellwood to take a new look at earthen mounds on LSU campus.
His discovery? Evidence suggesting they could be the oldest manmade structures in the Western Hemisphere, and possibly the world.https://t.co/wZCnG5J5C3
