This is your guide into the mysterious world of the Allegewi Hopewell mound builders, 1000 B.C.-500 A.D. 222 mound and earthworks sites have been photographed, with directions provided in Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, West Virginia and Michigan. This is the result of 13 years of field work, investigating over 700 burial mound and earthwork sites. There are other travel guides to the burial mounds and earthworks, but for every mound and earthwork site that you visit, you will have passed by 3. The Allegewi Hopewell worshipped their ancestors and believed the dead were part of a mystified past that formed a collective that would govern the future. The earthen and stone temples were constructed to venerate the Sun Father and the Earth Mother. Discover the solar alignments of the solstices and equinox within the geometric and hilltop earthworks. Learn the signs within the natural landscape at mound and earthwork sites that were part of the worship of the Earth Mother. This publication reveals for the first time, the secrets of the ancient civilization known as the Allegewi Hopewell; who deserve to take their place amongst the Egyptians, Greeks and Romans as a people known for conquest, building and empire.
