Hopewell Astronomy in the News

“It is becoming increasingly clear that many of Ohio’s ancient earthworks incorporate alignments to astronomical phenomena, such as the apparent rising and setting of the Sun on the summer and winter solstices and the various moonrises and sets that demarcate the complicated 18.6-year-long cycle of the Moon.”

For more information about the astronomy of the Hopewell mounds we have two new sources available to you!  OHS Archaeologist, Brad Lepper, has written an article for the Columbus Dispatch as well as a more in depth post for the Ohio Archaeology Blog.
