Strange Sightings on the Scioto

Show Summary Details


This chapter explores the possibility that the geometrical earthworks of Chillicothe might have been related by direct alignment and that this alignment may have been extended down the Scioto River to more distant earthworks. This alignment, thus, may mark a deliberate invoking of the historical connections between social groups.

Keywords: Chillicothe; Scioto River; earthworks; historical connection; social groups; alignment
