Etowah Indian Mounds historic site hosts 'Games Day'

Learning about history isn't always fun and games -- but it will be this weekend at one of North Georgia's most unique historic sites.

The Etowah Indian Mounds Historic Site in Cartersville is hosting Etowah Games Day on Saturday, July 8 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. 

The event will feature several stations showcasing early Native American games, with experts to explain how those games influenced modern games and athletic events. 

The Etowah Indian Mounds Historic Site is a 54-acre site that was home to Native Americans between 1000 A.D. to 1550 A.D., and remaining features include six mounds, a plaza, and a defensive ditch. 

The site also includes a museum filled with Native American artifacts that help tell the story of the people who once populated the area.

Good Day Atlanta's Paul Milliken spent the morning in Cartersville, playing a few of the games that will be featured on Saturday.
