|Description ||Stockade Reconstruction on site at Angel Mounds, Vanderburgh County, Indiana.|
The Angel Mound's town was surrounded on three sides by a stockade made from tree trunks set about four feet into the ground and covered with a wattle and daub mixture. The stockade was 6300 feet long with a bastion about every 120 feet. Fourteen feet outside the stockade there was a fence of smaller tree trunks and branches. A section of the stockade wall has been reconstructed, in place, using modern materials for longevity. The path of the wall itself can still be seen at certain times of the year by differences in the vegetation.
