Join us to hear Mark Leach speak about The Cahokia in Chesterfield. Nearly 1,000 year ago, a vibrant Native American community filled the entire Chesterfield Valley. Though only a small portion of the community has been professionally studied, over 100,000 artifacts have been discovered including exotic materials from the Great Lakes and the Gulf of Mexico. Cahokia in Chesterfield has been the focus of professional archaeological research for over 70 years. Research is ongoing, and most excitingly, the very heart of this ancient city lies well preserved under six feet of flood deposited soil. You will never see your local area in quite the same way again!
