Bottle Creek Site

Bottle Creek is an archaeological site in South Alabama associated with the Pensacola culture, a variant of the Mississippian culture that dominated the Southeast from 1,000 to 1550 AD. This artist's reconstruction of the mound complex at Bottle Creek shows the locations and sizes of the various mounds as well as features where materials have been removed for construction or other purposes. Archaeologists commonly call them "borrow pits."
