The Many Large Burial Mounds Around Newark, Ohio


The Many Large Burial Mounds Around Newark, Ohio

Most of the large burial mounds in Ohio are designated as "Address Restricted."  In the Nephilim Chronicles: A Travel Guide to the Ancient Ruins in the Ohio Valley," I photographed 25 of these "Address Restricted" mounds and give historical details, photos, and directions to the sites. For a sneak peek of these mounds, see them here.  I photographed 121  mounds and earthworks in Ohio. Many of them are address restricted.  

A few miles south of Newark is the Jacksontown Adena Mound

Located in a Newark public park is the Infirmary Adena Mound

Located a little west of the Newark Earthworks is the Evans Adena Mound.

A little south of I-70 is the large Perry Adena Mound

Soon to be open to the public is the Adena hilltop ceremonial center called "Glenford Fort."

A stone wall enclosed the hilltop that includes this stone causeway to enter the site.

About a mile south of  Glenford is the Wilson Effigy mound.
