Aztalan is one of the largest and most significant archaeological sites in Wisconsin. Located halfway between Milwaukee and Madison, the Aztalan was a settled community of about 350 people dating roughly to AD 1050-1250. This site is noted for its large, earthen pyramid mounds, distinctive house forms, and enormous stockade. Be sure to check out what was found there on the Second Floor.
In the late 1800/early 1900s, it was popular to memorialize your family by adding a lock of hair to the family wreath. When a family member died, a sample of their hair would be taken, shaped it into a flower, and added to the wreath. Each flower would start at the top of the wreath, the spot reserved for the newly deceased, before being moved to the sides or bottom when another loved one passed on. Can you spot the memorial wreath in the Streets of Old Milwaukee?
