1 Cahokia -地理位置

A village of southwest Illinois, a residential suburb of East St. Louis. Nearby are the Cahokia Mounds,  a group of approximately 85 prehistoric Native American earthworks. Population, 17,550.

With upwards of 30,000 inhabitants at its peak in about 1100 AD, Cahokia, Illinois remained North America's first and biggest real city until the Northeast's population exploded in the late 18th century. This urban center of the Mississippi culture had organized leadership, commerce and a penchant for mound-building. Monk's Mound, the largest at 100 feet tall, dominates the site and was probably a mighty foundation for the home of the resident spiritual leader.


2 Cahokia -基本介紹

在公元1100年左右,美國伊利諾斯州的卡霍基亞都城居民一度達到了3萬人。在18世紀末北美東北部人口大爆炸前,卡霍基亞一直是北美地區第一座、最大的真正意義上的城市。這座密西西比河流域的文化中心曾經出現過井然有序的社會、繁榮的商業並修建堤壩。其中的僧侶堤壩高100英尺,在城中居高臨下,它很可能曾被掌權者用來作為建造居所的地基。
