    The Cahokia Pyramids, Illinois USA / 3000 BC -1000 AD / Monks Mound is the largest Pre-Columbian earthwork in Americas. Located at the Cahokia Mounds near Collinsville, Illinois, its size was calculated in 1988 as about 30 m high, 291 m long including the access ramp at the southern end, and 236 m wide. This makes Monks Mound roughly the same size at its base as the Great Pyramid of Giza. Its base circumference is larger than the Pyramid of the Sun at Teotihuacan.
