Map of Troyville Mounds & Enclosure

During the 1880s, the Bureau of American Ethnology's Division of Mound Exploration produced this survey of the prehistoric earthworks at Troyville (now Jonesville) in Catahoula Parish. The mound builders enclosed the hundred-acre site within an embankment more than ten feet high and ten feet wide.
