Unreported Burial Mound Discovered at the New Castle, Indiana Henge Site

New Burial Mound Discovered at the New Castle, Indiana Ancient Sun Temple Site


A small burial mound escaped detection and  destruction by Ball State University archaeologists at the New Castle, Indiana Henge site.



The burial mound is located to the right of mound #1 on the far left.  The small burial mound that was the likely site of a charnel house was not mapped by Eli Lilly or Ball State archaeologists who have destroyed much of this ancient mound and earthwork complex.
