Juli Six, of the Ohio History Connection Archaeology Blog, has written a brief post about Fort Ancient's recent field school and archaeological excavations of the Moorehead Circle.

"Of primary interest is a circular anomaly approximately 60 meters in diameter. The “Moorehead Circle” is surrounded by post molds that each extend three feet into the ground. Excavations in the central area of the circle revealed a large deposit of burned red clay. It seems the more they dig the more splendid things they discover."
