STATE HISTORIC SITE
This side of the Ramey tablet shows two bird heads.
They are almost identical to an engraving found on the
Spiro Mounds site. Spiro is another Mississippian site
located 350 miles to the southwest of Cahokia near Spiro,
Oklahoma. These images most closely resemble the ivory-
billed woodpecker. This broken tablet was found in the late
1800's by Thomas Ramey in his fields next to the largest
prehistoric earthen mound in North
America, Monks Mound.
