The Spiro Mounds Site is one of the most important archeological discoveries in North America and Oklahomaâ€™s only state archeological park. Spiro is the westernmost site of a complex cultural tradition in the Southeast called the Southern Cult or Southeastern Ceremonial Complex. The site, occupied from AD 850 to 1450, was home to powerful leaders who directed the building of the nine platform and burial mounds on the 80-acre site. These leaders governed farmers in outlying villages who probably provided labor for mound-building.
