Filling the Gap: continued large scale geomagnetics at Hopewell Mound Group, Ross County, Ohio.
Author(s): Sebastian Messal
This report presents the results of a large-area magnetic gradient survey at Hopewell Mound Group, a unit of Hopewell Culture National Historical Park in Ross County, Ohio. In 2011, a first survey covered only half of the archaeological monument, but for reconstruction and heritage management of the site a complete survey was sought. This survey was conducted in April 2015 by the German Archaeological Institute. During the survey, several magnetic anomalies of potential archaeological interest were detected, including known features from nineteenth century maps and many other new features of interest which are forming a new and very detailed picture of the ancient Hopewell site.
