Ancient Digs of AfricaEdit
Like the snake mounds of North America, the origin and meaning of these great mounds remain a mystery, though, clearly, they were the result of profound and urgent spiritual belief.
Unlike other snake mounds, the African example is a double snake mound--a small snake ring within a larger snake ring. The mound is thought to have housed an ancient temple.
Although archaeologists have explored the mound site, the interior remains largely unchanged from ancient times.
This is partially due to stringent Government regulations, and partially to local superstition. The local people regard the mound with fear, and won't go near it.
