The Mound Builders, a term loosely applied to cultures called Adena, Hopewell and Mississippian by archaeologists, were the inhabitants of eastern and midwestern America from roughly 1000BC to AD 1673, when the first French explorers arrived.  The "mounds" are large earthworkd, often used for burials.  The most famous mound is the Cahokia mound in Illinois, 100 feet tall.  The earthworks of the Mound Builders, although not as impressive as the Pyramids of Yucatan, were thought by early explorers to be beyond the capability of the "primitive" local Indians.  Robert Silverberg, in his book THE MOUND BUILDERS, discusses the many fanciful theories of their origin, including the idea that Atlanteans or even Danish Vikings had built the mounds.  Carbon-14 dating has shown that the mounds were built by the imme-
diate ancestors of the Native Americans, and some were even built after the Euro-
peans arrived.  But this doesn't solve the problem of the ORIGIN of the Mound Builders.  How long had they been there and where did they come from?

The Cayce readings tell us, not that the Atlanteans were the Mound Builders, but that their descendants were.  A site called Koster in Illinois reveals the people that became the Mound Builders, and provides a record of a sophisticated culture that goes back almost to the time of the Cayce Atlanteans.

Anthropologist Stuart Streuver of Northwestern University, directing the excavation of this site, was amazed to find layer after layer of ancient occupations, over 30 feet thick and dating back over 9,000 years.  Prior to this discovery, people assumed that, for most of their history, the Native Americans had been primitive nomadic hunter-gatherers.  But at Koster, Streuver found evidence of sophisticated construction of buildings, possibly including plaster walls, going back thousands of years.  The builders of the famous mounds were in the area as early as 9500BC.  He
feels the later Mound Builders are descended from these early arrivals, since the later skeletons at Koster are very similar to the early ones.  The evidence tends to refute Donnelly, but to support Cayce.  Although some later cultural input from Central America influenced the construction of the mounds in later years, the original settlers could indeed have been "of the second generation of Atlanteans."
