Earthworks: Preserving Ohio's Ancient History


October 22, 2013
All Sides, a podcast by Ann Fisher of WOSU 89.7 fm NPR News, has an interesting episode about Ohio's earthworks including their significance, preservation, current research, and future. 
To view or listen to the 49.50 minute episode click here.

"Not far from the chaos of downtown Columbus stand a series of earthen mounds built by ancient cultures that inhabited this region over 2,000 years ago.  Their exact purpose remains mysterious, but their preservation is essential. This hour we’ll talk about what may have inspired a people to build the largest earthworks in the world, and what threats the sites face today."-All Sides, WOSU
