In Our Own Backyard: SIUE Investigations of the Gehring Site
“In Our Own Backyard: SIUE Investigations of the Gehring Site” with presenter Prof. Julie Zimmermann. SIUE’s Gehring Site is located on the SIUE campus between Cahokia Creek and the bluff, eight miles north of Cahokia Mounds. Work thus far has shown the site was used from late-Paleo Indian through historic periods, but most intensively during the Middle Woodland (ca. 2000 years ago) and Mississippian periods (ca. 1000 years ago).
