Pinson Mounds is a large prehistoric complex in Madison County, Tennessee. The complex contains 13 mounds, and 3,500 linear feet of earthern geometric enclosure, four-short term ritual-activity areas, and numerous habitation sites. The site was likely occuppied between 100 BC and AD 350, and represents an example of the Hopewell-derived mortuary mound ceremonialism which defined the Middle Woodland period of North American prehistory. Pottery at the site includes Swift Creek designs, likely created by paddles manufactured further east (Georgia/Florida) and locally used to make pots.
