Pyramids in North America examined by History Club

Members of the History Club at St George's Junior School, Weybridge were treated to another fascinating session by Chertsey Museum on Wednesday 22 February as they learnt about North American pyramids. 

Focusing on 'Monks Mound', the largest pyramid in North America, pupils found out about the Cahokia settlement. This settlement was the largest and most influential urban settlement of the Mississippian culture, that developed advanced societies across much of what is now the central and southeastern United States, beginning more than 1,000 years before European contact.

History Club pupils really enjoyed making their own pyramids at the end of the session, trying to make them as authentic as possible!
