If you haven’t heard, in 2005 OHS staff Bill Pickard and Linda Pansing along with Geophysical Specialist Dr Jarrod Burks from Ohio Valley Archaeology were conducting research in conjunction with a Save America’s Treasures Grant which was awarded to OHS to help address erosion issues impacting several sections of the earthen walls of Fort Ancient. A brief synopsis of the research and subsequent find can be seen at http://www.ohiohistory.org/places/ftancien/fa-01.html.
We are very excited to announce that Wright State University, under the direction of Dr. Robert Riordan, will be conducting a field school this summer to investigate the find.
We plan to keeping you up to date on the investigation through the blog, so please pop back from time to time to see the latest information.
Have a great holiday weekend!
