History

The parish is named for Pierre Le Moyne d'Iberville, who founded the French colony of Louisiana. A few archeological efforts have been made in the Parish, and the attention has lied mainly on the many Indian "mounds". Although the first expedition, led by Clarence B. Moore, was only an attempt at collecting data from a couple of the sites it set the groundwork for later projects. Clarence was mainly interested in the skeletal remains of the previous inhabitants, rather than excavating the decrepit pottery and furniture. Archeologists are especially interested in these sites because of their uniformity and size. Some of the mounds are seven hundred feet long, a hundred feet wide and six feet tall. Most of them contain human remains.
