About MoundvilleOne of the country's best preserved prehistoric mound groups lies on the south bank of the Black Warrior River in Moundville. The agrarian Native American culture, which built the mounds, developed from A.D. 1000 to 1500 into what is considered one of the most advanced prehistoric civilizations north of Mexico.
Possessing considerable artistic skill, the people advanced pottery making, copper working and stone carving to high levels of refinement. Moundville served as the civic and cultural center for many small villages up and down the river.
