This watercolor artwork by David Paul Cook shows Mound “C” at Toltec Mounds Archaeological State Park. This small mound is situated in the center of the site. This was the only mound utilized for burial purposes at this huge “Plum Bayou Culture” ceremonial site, which was occupied from 650 -1050 A.D. This Arkansas prehistoric site spans more than 100 acres, contains two plazas and has sixteen mounds. See story on page 117.
