Overview of another of the burned temples at the Ferguson site. This rectangular building was oriented on cardinal directions. Prior to burning, the temple's roof was apparently removed and its walls were dismantled and allowed to fall inward, one at a time much like you might unfold of those clever one-piece cardboard file boxes. The remains of the burned temple were capped with a layer of soil upon which yet another temple was constructed. Arkansas Archeological Survey photo. Courtesy Pictures of Record.
