15 Things Archeologists Discovered In Missouri That Will Amaze You

Archeologists literally “dig up” artifacts from the past that help us understand the history of our land dating back thousands of years. Missouri has been part of several important finds. Some have since been listed on the National Register of Historic Places like the Mastodon State Historic Site in Imperial and as National State Landmarks like the Graham Cave Historic Site in Montgomery County. Here are just of few of the interesting artifacts they have uncovered.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
