Maybe I am just concerned but what on earth is going on at Poverty Point? No one knows where it came from.

This is straight up a mystery. This is Louisiana's Roanoke. It is located in the northeast part of the state in Pioneer, Louisiana. Archaeologists are stretching their heads trying to figure out what on earth happened in this place.

From what they know so far is that Poverty Point was built sometime between 1650 and 1100 B.C. Although they can't find any kind of written word in this place, they have found relics and weapons.

According to, archaeologists think that Poverty Point was for ancient ceremonial center based on the millions of artifacts they keep digging up.

They also believed that the site was abandoned and stayed that way until Europeans strolled in with their European selves around the 1800s, but why did they leave?
