A large mound located at Moundville, West Virginia, 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. Some Latter-day Saints consider these things to be archaeological evidences of the Book of Mormon.
