Event Details

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 A.D. 1-  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?

This program is hosted by the Friends of the Coshocton Public Library in partnership with the Ohio Humanities Speakers Bureau and the Coshocton Public Library.
