Drone survey reveals large circular earthwork

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

A Dartmouth-led study using multisensor drones has revealed a large circular earthwork at what may be Etzanoa, an archaeological site near Wichita, Kansas.

Archaeologists speculate that the site was visited by a Spanish expedition, led by Juan de Oñate, a controversial conquistador, in 1601. The earthwork may be the remains of a so-called "council circle," as it is similar to several other circular earthworks in the region, according to the study's findings published in American Antiquity.

I'm confused, were these "council circles" built by the Spanish or the indigenous people?

“Etzanoa,” a major settlement reportedly encountered by Spanish conquistador Juan de Oñate in 1601."

Encountered by the Spanish. So, not built by the Spanish.
