On March 10, 2021 our Southeastern Regional Director Jessica Crawford presented “Preserving a Prehistoric City Beneath a Modern Town: The Archaeological Conservancy’s Troyville Preserve.”

From about AD 400 to 700, a great settlement was constructed at the confluence of the Tensas, Black and Ouachita Rivers in Louisiana. The Troyville site originally consisted of nine mounds, the largest was nearly 80 feet with two “terraces” that were topped with what was described as a “flattened cone or dome.” In this lecture, Jessica discusses the archaeological research that has been conducted at the site and the Conservancy’s efforts to acquire and preserve what remains of it.
