"The Department of Anthropology, in partnership with the City of Dublin Ohio, conducts field work at the HolderWright archaeological site to train students in archaeological techniques, as well as recover deposits from an area set to be partly impacted by road building. This multi-year partnership also includes targeted excavations in a part of the site set to be preserved as an interpretive, archaeological park. This area contains earthworks dating back to the Hopewell people, and other deposits from prior time periods. The Hopewell culture included many Indian tribes present in Ohio between 500 B.C. and A.D. 500. "
