Brad Lepper, of the Ohio History Connection Archaeology Blog, has written a post about the formal transfer of Seip Mound to the Hopewell Culture National Historical Park. Seip Mound is included in the Hopewell Ceremonial Earthworks UNESCO World Heritage nomination and is the third largest mound ever built by the Hopewell culture.
"This transfer is an acknowledgement that the amazing Seip Mound could be more effectively managed and interpreted as a part of the system of Hopewellian earthworks in Ross County already encompassed within the boundaries of the national park — including the largest portion of the geometric earthworks at Seip."
