CURATOR TALK: THE AMAZING NEWARK EARTHWORKS


Join me on Saturday October 12th at the Ohio History Center for a Curator Talk on the Amazing Newark Earthworks! The Newark Earthworks, built by the Hopewell culture 2,000 years ago, is the largest set of geometric earthworks ever built — anywhere. The earthworks have such a sophisticated knowledge of geometry and astronomy built into them that you might think ancient aliens had a hand in the design of this monumental architectural masterpiece. You might think that, but you’d be wrong. Come and find out just how smart Ohio’s ancient American Indians really were. Date/Time: October 12, 2013, 2-3 pm Location of Event: Ohio History Center Fees: Free with paid museum admission Celebrate Archaeology Month!
