Jenny Burman, of Cincinnati Magazine, has written a brief article about Elizabeth Bartley's efforts to 'help promote preserving historical site and integrating them into our lives today'.
"What’s important about the Hopewell Earthworks? Once you understand what was going on, they’re so sophisticated, these huge precise geometries that create plazas—you could drop multiple coliseums inside of one of them. They’re precisely aligned with moonrises at very specific points in the calendar, and then they are repeated across the landscape for hundreds of miles up and down tributaries. The complexities start making your head hurt in a really good way—and most people don’t even know they’re there. "
