Archeologists cleaning walls of excavation trenches at Mound C, Davis site, Cherokee County, Texas. This mound was built over a 300-400 year period, basketload by basketload, by the early Caddo community as a special cemetery for their leaders, who were entombed within deep pits in the original soil below the mound. The contrasting layers of fill visible in the walls reveal the complex history of the mound. TARL archives.
