Lewis Wallace, of 91.3 WYSO, has written an informative summary of recent research done at Ohio's famous Serpent Mound and basic information into its history and significance.
"For the uninitiated, the Serpent Mound is among several earthen mounds on a site in Adams County in southern Ohio, and it stands out because of its giant snake-like shape—it’s 1,427 feet long, making it one of the largest snake structures in the world. The head of the serpent points towards the spot where the sun sets on the summer solstice, and observers have guessed that the coils in its body also align with sunrises on solstice and equinox dates."
