NKY History Hour: A History of the Adena and Hopewell Cultures in NKY
Wednesday, October 21, 6:30 p.m.
Learn about the Adena and Hopewell people who lived in the region circa 200 BC to almost 500AD. What do we know about them in Northern Kentucky? Adena mounds are plentiful in Boone County, but only a few have been found in Kenton or Campbell Counties. Only a few sites with Hopewell period artifacts are known in all of Northern Kentucky. Mounds and complex earthworks from both cultures abound in Ohio and the central Ohio Valley. Why is a mystery!
Information on how to connect to the session will be sent after registration.
