2) This copper plate, roughly 10-inches square, was excavated from a Florida mound in the 1920s. It depicts what at first appears to be UFOs circling.
3) Human effigy excavated from Spiro, Oklahoma mound looking like an astronaut.
4) The Willoughby Disk from Moundville, Alabama. The "eye-in-hand" symbol depicts the Belt of Orion with an "Ogee," the portal to the Path of Souls.

8) Dunleith Mounds in East Dubuque, Illinois. In the 1880s the Smithsonian excavated a skeleton 7 feet 6 inches tall from one of the mounds.
9) Display at the South Charleston, West Virginia Criel Mound. A 7 foot eight inch skeleton encircled by 10 other skeletons was excavated by the Smithsonian in a tomb in the base of the mound.
10) Andrew Collins (l) and Greg Little in front of the museum at Moundville, Alabama. The top of the building displays the "life soul" in skulls and bones. The banner hanging to the left of the door shows the "feathered serpent," the constellation of Scorpius, the ruler of the underworld. Just above the door a copper pendant from Moundville is displayed. It shows the eye-in-hand at the bottom, the Dark Rift of the Milky Way, and Cygnus.
