MOUNDSVILLE, W.Va. (AP) - Grave Creek Mound Archaeological Complex in Moundsville is presenting several programs next month, all free and open to the public.

Grave Creek also has two new permanent exhibits. Prehistoric West Virginia features casts of some large Ice Age animals that were once in West Virginia, including skulls of the saber-tooth cat and dire wolf. The dire wolf serves as a pet and protector to many of the characters on the television series “Game of Thrones.”

The Buried Past: Artifacts from West Virginia’s Wild, Wonderful History showcases archaeological sites and a wide range of people, places and time.

Grave Creek ranks as one of the largest earthen mortuary mounds anywhere in the world.
