The article references a large mound located at Moundville, West Virginia, which is believed to have existed for some three thousand years. Three human skeletons were discovered within the mound’s two vaults. A stone located at the mound and now held at the Smithsonian Institute contains an inscription that has never been deciphered. These things are considered to be archaeological evidences of the Book of Mormon.
