Look to some of the more detailed of the Adena/Hopewell
moundbuilder complexes. They look as though they might have been
inspired by crop circles. These people practiced a more
intensive agriculture than did the Europeans who were
contemporaneous. While the Europeans had a dipple stick, the
Adena had a hoe stone with a curve to match the arch of the
stroke of the worker. So they would have had extensive crops, a
form of wheat and maze. And this, some 1500 to 700 years ago.

I might add, they too shared the mythology of the Plumed
Serpent, Quetzechoatl. Although I by no means share Von
Daniken's crass oversimplifications and misrepresented
conclusions on that score.
