Archeologist William Romain proposes new interpretation of the Great Serpent Mound
Dr. William Romain is best known for his scientific studies of the Hopewell and Adena ceremonial sites. He is a subscriber to our POOF newsletter. I know him personally and have the highest respect for his professional work. When he puts his name on a published article, one should pay close attention.
The URL for the Summary of his Report that was published in the Journal of Archaeological Science.
Some of you have read my critiques of historic preservation architects and contractors, who debate various approaches to restoring historic buildings without having a clue about the chemical and micro-structural changes in a specific building’s components over time. Many of you have read my critiques of archaeologists, who speculate on the age and purpose of Native American structures without carrying out rigorous scientific, geo-spatial, architectural and cultural analysis. None of those criticisms apply to Bill Romain. I urge you to study his web site.
