NEWARK EARTHWORKS REMNANTS WALK

 

Jeff Gill leading a tour of the Newark Earthwork remnants.

The Newark Earthworks once covered more than four square miles of, what the early archaeologists Ephraim Squier and Edwin Davis described as, a “remarkable plain.” Today, the Ohio Historical Society preserves two of the most impressive components of these earthworks — the Great Circle and the Octagon Earthworks — as well as a fragment of the once monumental square enclosure at Wright Earthworks. On November 2nd, join Jeff Gill for a walking tour of lesser known earthwork remnants scattered across Newark and gain a sense of the original magnificence of the entire Newark Earthworks complex! This is a rare opportunity that is not to be missed.
