Added photo, expanded article with new referenced material, created a History and a Geography section. Reclassed from stub to start. Altairisfar 09:09, 4 December 2007 (UTC)
The following was deleted from History section by user Chimu at 11:36 on 11 December 2007 with no explanation. I reverted edits, if these statements are controversial (They all come the University of Alabama) or need to be removed please give reasons as to why and build consensus before removing them:
- The surrounding area appears to have been heavily populated but containing relatively few mounds before the creation of the public architecture of the great plaza about 1200.
- At its height, the population is estimated to have been around 1000 people within the town itself with 10,000 in the surrounding countryside.
- When the population was at this level, the community took the form of a 300-acre (121 ha) residential town protected on three sides by a bastioned wooden palisade wall with the remaining side protected by the river bluff.
- The residents appear to have been skilled in the agriculture, especially the cultivation of maize. Extensive amounts of imported luxury goods such as copper, mica, galena, and marine shell have been excavated from the site. The site is renowned in scientific circles for the artistic excellence displayed by the artifacts of pottery, stonework, and embossed copper left by its former residents.
- Added more material on excavations at the site with references, minor reorganizing of the material. Removed from start classifications, article should be reassessed, I believe it should meet the qualifications for B class at present. Altairisfartalk 12:44, 13 December 2007 (UTC)

IPs from State College, Pennslyvania-refusal to use citations, edit warring and refusal to acknowledge talk page messages
As with the many other times I have asked this in the past (multiple IPs and named account which make 2 or 3 edits then disappear, this geolocation and on Native American history subjects), all uncited additions, duplicate material of info already in articles and copyvios will be removed. Presumably this is a school project or part of a college class editing as an assignment, please visit WP:SUP and WP:WOA, or instruct your professor to, please. All edits made by you that do not adhere to our sourcing or other policies will be reverted. All changes to dates, measurements and additions must be cited. Please review the blue links I've provided above. So far your refusal to use citations, edit warring and refusal to acknowledge talk page messages is leading me to one conclusion, I must take this to one of the admin noticeboards to seek a block for this IP 184.108.40.206. I would really rather not, but you are leaving me no choice. Heiro 23:02, 25 March 2012 (UTC)
