Brad Lepper – The Newark Earthworks: One of the World’s Ancient Wonders

March 14 @ 7:00 pm

The Newark Earthworks are the largest set of geometric enclosures and mounds in the world. The work of the Hopewell people who lived in Ohio circa 100 B.C. to A.D. 400, these geometric earthworks covered nearly five square miles, using more than seven million cubic feet of earth. Why did the Hopewell build such monumental works? Were they prehistoric forts or ancient American cathedrals?
