THE 35TH DAY T MINUS ONE TWENTY-ONE: THE L’ANSE AMOUR BURIAL MOUND OF LABRADOR, CANADA AND THE ROCKY MOUNDS OF THE MIDDLE ARCHAIC MARITIME CULTURE

Excerpted from Prehistory of the Americas, Second Edition, SJ Fiedel, Cambridge University Press, 1992, pp. 95

Twelve year old child buried in rocky mound formation, 3 feet deep, 25 feet in diameter, and 1 foot 6 inches high, located in the Canadian maritime province of Labrador, carbon dated to 5580 +/- 140 B.C. (Tuck 1975), making this mound far older than the Adena and Hopewell mound-building cultures active some thousands of years later, and furthermore the incidence of any and all rocky mound burials is salient in light of our discoveries in Pennsylvania, thank you much.
