Summary
The authors stress how Monk's Mound, the gigantic centerpiece of the sprawling complex, covers more area than most late prehistoric sites in the Mississippi Valley. They point out how the central complex of mounds and plazas is comparable in scale to the core of Washington D.C., including the Mall, major monuments, the Capitol, and the White House, and they keep coming back to the words that others have used in trying to comprehend the complexity of the site
