      >>speaking of mounds and all, there is a small local brouhaha right here
      >>in the Bay Area, Emeryville to be precise. A short distance from my home
      >>is the site of the old Emeryville shellmound - I mentioned it in passing
      >>here some time ago. It once measured something like 60 feet high, 300

      >>but it was not in use by the locals, so who's to know who really built
