This summer the Ohio Historical Society will host “Mounds, Earthworks and the Pre-History of the Ohio Valley,” a one-week workshop for community college faculty taking place at the Ohio Historical Center (Columbus) and American Indian cultural heritage locations across Ohio. The workshop will be offered twice during the summer, July 9-15 and July 23-29, 2006. Participants in this workshop will expand their knowledge of American Indian societies as revealed in the artifact collections, archival materials and, most importantly, the mounds and earthworks for which Ohio is so famous. Using historic sites and material culture as the basis for investigation, participants will gain insight and experience utilizing artistic and anthropological methodologies for studying objects and space to interpret American Indian cultures. Sites we will be visiting include: Newark Earthworks, Ft. Ancient Earthworks, Serpent Mound, Pickawillany, Flint Ridge State Memorial, Miamisburg Mound, and the Piqua Historical Area.
These workshops are sponsored by a National Endowment for the Humanities Landmarks in American History & Culture grant.
