Just Curious: When were the Ocmulgee Mounds created?

The Ocmulgee Mounds National Historical Park may have not been established until 1936, but its history dates as far back as before 1000 CE. The park contains thousands of unearthed artifacts that give clues as to the lifestyles and habits that Southeastern Native Americans possessed thousands of years ago. But, the park is most well-known for its mounds. According to park ranger Drew Grice, the mounds were built over 1,000 years ago during the Mississippian period. The idea of mound-building spread from areas such as St. Louis, and later reached the Southeast.
