In these days of increasing population and expanding communities, it is inevitable that many of the historical antiquities should disappear. The Indian mounds are not alone in this respect, for the remains of the early colonial periods are also succumbing to modern demands. In order therefore to preserve, in record at least, as much as possible for the future, a register of all existing antiquities should be compiled before it is too late.
