North Carolina Excavations — Joara

Joara Excavations As settlers migrated across the mountain of North Carolina, certain families also expanded into border counties of Kentucky and Virginia. A popular county of such transitions was Burke. This region boasts one of the largest Indian mounds at Joara, being 12-acres near Morganton, making it the center of the largest Native American settlement dating from about 1000 A. D.

The region suffered from attacks by other tribes until it was taken over by the survivors of larger tribes.
