There are lots of smaller mounds in the southeast, too, and of course when
you get to Mexico you have huge pyramids and cities dating way back.

And the inscribed ledge in Westport, Mass., has been interpreted in a
variety of ways depending on who happened to be looking at it in any
particular quarter century.

However, this also doesn't rule out the possibility that there was early
traffic between the continents, although it would of course be good to
see some evidence for it before assuming such traffic as the source of
any given artifact.
