Astronomical Orientations of Southeastern Town Sites
Ohio Archaeologist, William Romain, has embarked on a monumental task that will probably keep him busy for the rest of his life. Using high tech equipment and software, he is analyzing the site plans of all the major Southeastern Native American town sites to determine their relationship to the terrain, sun, moon, planets and stars. Dr. Romain is best known for his studies of Hopewell and Adena Culture sites. What he is doing now is applying the methodology that he developed for Hopewell and Adena sites to a much broader cultural spectrum.
If interested in learning more about what he is doing, you can access his web site at: Ancient Earthworks Project

Y’all have a blessed week!
