“who built them, and why?”

The Spiro Mounds Archaeological Center is the only prehistoric Native American archaeological site in Oklahoma open to the public.  One of the most important American Indian sites in the nation, the Spiro Mounds are world renowned because of the incredible amount of art and artifacts dug from the Craig Mound, the site's only burial mound.  Home to rich cultural resources, the Spiro Mounds were created and used by Caddoan-speaking Indians between 850 and 1450 AD.  This area of eastern Oklahoma became the seat of ancient Mississippian culture and the Spiro Mounds grew from a small farming village to one of the most important cultural centers in what later became the United States. Spiro Mounds continued as a vibrant civilization until its people suddenly vanished. Much mystery remains around how an entire civilization just ceases to exist.
