HISTORY:
The Mississippian Arrowhead series has been named after the first Native Americans to settle at Angel Mounds, the Middle Mississippian Indians. In order to hunt for their food, and for their tribes protection, Native Americans carved arrowheads for their bow and arrows. Arrowheads were commonly carved out of stone known as flint. However, they have also been found made out of bone, wood, and other types of stone.

The location of the Mississippian Arrowhead series is located in the Angel Mounds hiking trails just outside the parks grounds. To find them you will have to anwser the questions below and solve the puzzle to the first letterbox. Mississippian Arrowhead #2 can not be found until you find Mississippian Arrowhead #1, and the Mississippian Arrowhead #3 can not be found until you have found #1 and #2. Good luck and happy trails.

CLUES:(mississppian arrowhead #1)
Now replace each number, seperated by colons ( : ), with the corresponding letters from the anwsers above.

Take the 41:2:32:9:45 trail on the 33:8:22:36:45 off the levee path. Follow the trail to the

41:11:33:13:45 trail on the 32:14:22:36:45. Walk until the trail 45:27:33:44:10 ninety

degrees to the 32:43:22:36:45. 12:45:34:15. Look 24:37:41:45. A 41:20:5:24:6:44,

45:33:37:6 blocks what looks like an 26:42:29 - 45:32:38:11:5. The place where that

tree 10:16:42:2:44:45:37:33:13 may hold your Indian artifact.

CLUES for mississippian arrowhead #2:
Start where M.A. #1 left off.
Follow the 90* turn in the trail to the right. Before the Y in the trail look to your right. There is a large tree stump. Inside this stump holds Arrowhead #2.

CLUES for Mississippian Arrowhead #3:
Start where M.A. #2 left off.
Take the Y in the trail to the right. Follow the trail across a bridge made of logs. When you come to another bridge like it turn right. Here you'll see damage from the 2005 tornado. Scary, right? Up ahead on the right a tree top is missing and all that remains it are deadly long spikes! Keep going. Next you will come to a field and the trail curves to the left. Count 7 paces (1 pace = 2 steps) from the end of the curve. To the left is a hollow log. Look inside to find Arrowhead #3.

You can either keep walking the trail or turn around and walk back the way you came. I do not know how long the trail is so if you are prepared for a long hike go for it. Hope you enjoyed the hunt! Please leave feedback. (These are the first letterboxes I have hidden)

Directions:
From I-164 take the Covert Ave exit. Turn left at the stop light. At the 4-way stop
(Fuquay Rd.) turn left. At the T (Pollack Ave) turn right toward the Angel Mounds boat ramp. Just before the overpass turn left and immediately park on the left in front of the levee path.
