Corn
Description: These two ears of corn are identified as: "Longfellow Yellow Flint corn (Zea Mays), planted 6/1/85 harvested 9/19/85 hand-pollinated grown in experimental garden {SunWatch} Indian Village site 33 MY 57" and "Corn (Zea Mays) Council Flower X Mandan Cross, planted 5/15/85 harvested 9/6/85 hand pollinated grown in experimental garden {SunWatch} Indian Village Site 33 MY 57." These pieces are from Fort Ancient Culture. The Fort Ancient people were a late prehistoric culture living in southern Ohio between 1,100 and 450 years ago. Fort Ancient people were Ohio's original farmers, growing crops of corn, beans, and squash, and thrived in southern Ohio and northern Kentucky. Villages were made up of a number of circular or rectangular houses surrounding an open plaza. The Fort Ancient people continued to build small burial mounds, but gradually shifted to burials in a cemetery area with no mounds. View on Ohio Memory.
