As part of this celebration of Ohio’s ancient American Indian heritage, on Saturday, September 20th at 1:00 PM, I will be giving a presentation on the Newark Earthworks: One of the World’s Ancient Wonders. This presentation is sponsored by the Ohio Humanities Council — a state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities. I often speak about the Newark Earthworks, but I never give the same program twice. First of all, because the site is so huge and its history is so rich and complicated that I can’t hope to share its entire story in one go. And secondly, we’re always learning more about the earthworks, so there’s always something new to add to the discussion. I hope you will be able to join me for this part of the on-going conversation about an amazing site that still has much to teach us about the knowledge and capabilities of ancient American Indian peoples!ohio humanities council Brad Lepper
