Photo's of the Serpent Mound's Megalithic Stone Altar



In the center of the "egg" being swallowed by the Serpent is a small stone mound or altar that was originally visible, but removed because the caretakers didn't like mowing around it.

The photo was taken in 1888 by Harvard University showing the altar
