The Given Name Adena
The Adenas built cone shaped mounds for the dead. They also built animal shaped mounds that might have had a religious meaning. The burial mounds were built by pouring earth from thousands of baskets on top of a burned mortuary building probably as part of a burial ritual. Often a new mortuary structure would be placed atop the new mound and the process would occur again. After a number of these cycles, a quite prominent earthwork would be formed. The finished mounds generally ranged in size form 20 to 300 feed in diameter.
Although the Adenas were mostly known for these mounds there were also notable for their agricultural practices, pottery, artistic works and extensive trading network.
