Indiana 1500 B.C.  Ancient Fish Weir Still Visible Along the Wabash River

Ancient fish weir constructed by the mound builder culture to catch eels.  The date of construction could be as early as 1500 B.C.   An identical 
eel" weir is found in Labrador dating to 1500 B.C.  The Maritime Archaic migrated from the coastal regions into Indiana at about this time. Burial mounds that once existed near this site providing  the probability of an early origin of this Indiana treasure.
