The newest exhibit at Angel Mounds is the Glenn Black and Eli
Lilly Experience, which looks at Black’s and Lilly’s collaboration in the 1930’s and 1940’s to begin scientific excavations at Angel Mounds. The new display combines amazing prehistoric artifacts from Lilly’s personal collection with authentic archaeological equipment used at Angel in the mid-20th century. There are also fun interactive displays that explain how Black’s excavations revealed the hidden past of Angel Mounds.
The new exhibit highlights both sides of Angel Mounds’ story: the prehistoric Mississippians who lived here, and the dedicated archaeologists who helped us to recover their history. Come by and check it out soon!
