Our It’s a Material World feature spotlights a singular effigy mound in Wisconsin.

Lake Effect contributor Gianofer Fields took us out to Man Mound Park near Baraboo, Wisconsin, where she spoke with Rob Nurre. He's a former board member and former chairman of the archeological site committee for the Sauk County Historical Society.

Fields is a material culture student at UW-Madison, and she produces and curates the series, "It's A Material World." That project is funded by the Chipstone Foundation, a decorative arts foundation whose mission is preserving and interpreting their collection, as well as stimulating research and education in the decorative arts.
