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.
