Welcome to the Newark Earthworks Center at The Ohio State University 



The Newark Earthworks Center is an interdisciplinary academic center of the Ohio State University that supports programs and research about earthen architecture, including earthworks and conical mounds, in order to promote a better understanding of American Indian pre-contact histories and cultures throughout the Great Lakes region.
