Archaeologists and researchers from the University of Illinois have spent over a century studying Cahokia, North America’s first native city. For the first time, this wealth of knowledge about Cahokia has been used to create a Story Map entitled, Re-Envisioning Greater Cahokia. Staff from the Illinois State Archaeological Survey (ISAS) are responsible for turning the data, maps, text, and rarely seen images into the one-of-a-kind Story Map.

The Cahokia Story Map takes the reader on a journey with maps and images to demonstrate exactly what the term “Greater Cahokia” actually means. This is the first time archival images,  data, and maps about Cahokia have ever been presented this way, telling a much broader and fuller story about Greater Cahokia. The Story Map is free and available for viewing on any desktop, tablet, or mobile device.
