While photography provides a voice to people who otherwise might not be heard… there are cultures of long ago that might be forgotten were they not uncovered by scientific excavation.
Mound Bottom State Archaeological Area in Cheatham County, west of Nashville, is one such example.
But not only did this historic place need to be explored… there needed to be a better way for visitors to get in to see it.
