Dr. Richard Shiels, Director of the Newark Earthworks Center, has written an article for the Newark Advocate about our current lecture series describing recent efforts to include American Indian interests in Ohio's earthworks.
"The most spectacular collection of American Indian earthworks were here in Ohio. The Newark Earthworks, built approximately 2,000 years ago, were perhaps the most impressive of all. They belong on the UNESCO World Heritage list in part because they represent the middle of a very large story: pre-contact American Indians building earthworks up and down the rivers, including the Mississippi and the Ohio and their tributaries, over several millennia."
