Located at the Poverty Point Reservoir in Delhi, LA, the Marsden Mounds consist of a group of five mounds and parts of an earthen embankment. The site dates to the Troyville/Coles Creek periods (AD 400 – 1200). The largest mound (E) sits adjacent to a viewing platform. However, the mound is overgrown and not easily recognizable. The Baton Rouge chapter of the Louisiana Archaeological Society and the State chapter of the Louisiana Archaeological Society have partnered with the Office of State Parks to host a site clean-up for the weekend of October 26.
