C. the Adena culture appeared in present-day southern and central Ohio, and three hundred years later another moundbuilding culture, Hopewell, arose in Ohio and spread much farther south. The Adena and Hopewell mounds were built in relation to the movements of the stars and the sun, and they were often designed in the shapes of birds, snakes and symbols of the sun, sky, moon, and earth. The Adena people and the Hopewellians lived adjacent to rivers so they could easily control the flow of trade goods up and down the Ohio River.
The population lived in small towns that were clustered around one of several mound centers scattered regularly between the northern and southern ends of the chiefdom. Coosa's total population was nearly four thousand, but it declined precipitously in the aftermath of Hernando de Soto's visit to the area in 1540. D.
