TOUR: Ohio Moundbuilders

September 10 - September 14

Hundreds of years ago in what is now part of southern Ohio, a complex culture of mound builders flourished.  Extensive earthworks, some towering six stories high, are the legacy of the Hopewell and Adena people.  The Hopewell and Adena cultures, which flourished in the eastern United States from about 800 B.C. to A.D. 400, consisted of rich traditions and elaborate rituals.  Mica and copper ornaments, ostentatious burials, and the remains of large wooden structures are often found at their mound sites.

This tour offers an opportunity to discover more about the Hopewell and Adena cultures with visits to some of their most awe-inspiring mounds and earthworks, including a newly designated World Heritage Site.  Throughout the tour, expert archaeologists will offer their insights into the mysterious world of the mound builders.

An itinerary and information on how to register can be found on the tour website.
