The Glenwood Culture
Known as one of North America’s natural treasures, the Loess Hills is also one of our country’s archaeological gems. This unique landscape harbors hundreds of well-preserved earthlodge dwellings and palisaded villages built by ancestral Plains Indians. The people who lived in earthlodges in Iowa are known to archaeologists as the Glenwood culture.
