I took these pictures of the mannequins at Cahokia Mounds in Collinsville, Illinois. One of the greatest cities of the world, Cahokia was larger than London in AD 1250. The Mississippians who lived here were accomplished builders who erected a wide variety of structures from practical homes for everyday living to monumental public works that have maintained their grandeur for centuries.
As you can see from the pictures, the huts did not allow enough light or room for the inhabitants to pursue their hobbies or activities of daily life and such interests were pursued outdoors. This fostered a sense of community and togetherness.
Small rooms or dwellings discipline the mind, large ones weaken it. – Leonardo Da Vinci
