The Western Illinois Society is planning a trip to the Cahokia Mounds State Historic Site for National Archaeology Day. It will provide society members with an opportunity to see a fantastic and important local archaeological site and also provide a capstone experience for their "Year of Illinois Archaeology." They will take a bus together from west-central Illinois down to the Saint Louis area, take a guided tour of the site, and hopefully participate in some more activities around Cahokia (including a picnic lunch in the park) before returning home.
