Cahokia, now a peaceful Unesco site, is calmer these days. However, the presence of massive earthen mounds there suggests the presence of the greatest pre-Columbian city north of Mexico. Cahokia, a global frenzy of dialect, art, and theological activity, may have grown to 30,000 people at its peak in 1050 AD, making it bigger than Paris at the time. The vast city lacked a stable marketplace, which contradicted long-held beliefs that trade is the driving force behind all development. Cahokia Mounds State Historic Site, a Unesco World Heritage Site where an archaeological expedition is ongoing, preserves the ancient Cahokia site today.
