Shiloh National Military Park
Shiloh Indian Mounds Site entered the National Register of Historic Places 1979 7 May.

April 2002 Jackson Sun News article on the Shiloh mounds which talks about the problems with erosion that are had there.

(Quoted directly from material for release) Beginning on July 9th 2001, the National Park Service's Southeast Archeological Center (SEAC) commenced an archeological testing program of Mound A of the Shiloh Mound Complex. This mound group located at Shiloh National Military Park (SHIL) was occupied from ca. A.D. 1000 to 1350, by Mississippian peoples. The site includes a number of mounds around a plaza, on a high bluff overlooking the Tennessee River. The community was fortified, with an encircling palisade. The goals of the project are to examine the internal structure of Mound A and adjoining areas of the site near the bluff edge that are eroding into the Tennessee River. The excavation is one of the largest ever conducted on a national park in the Southeast, and is expected to make a number of significant discoveries that should substantially increase our understanding of the prehistory of the region. A web site on the project will be updated as the project goes, presenting day-to-day discoveries at:
