More About This Textbook

Overview

More than 12,000 years ago, American Indians discovered the lands we now call Ohio. By the time Europeans arrived in this continent, Ohio's indigenous peoples had become successful farmers living in large, circular villages along broad river valleys.

Ohio's rich archaeological heritage has captivated generations of scholars and scientists. Yet, archaeologists over the past few decades have made new discoveries that are revolutionizing out understanding of these American Indian cultures and their achievements.

Ohio Archaeology chronicles these landmark discoveries in a book written by Dr. Bradley T. Lepper, Curator of Archaeology of the Ohio Historical Society. Dr. Lepper presents this fascinating story in six, chronological chapters based on the major archaeological periods. With top regional scholars contributing 28 feature articles, Ohio Archaeology also looks at the state's early archaeological history.

Written in an engaging and understandable style, this epochal story is beautifully illustrated with over 340 photographs, original artworks, maps, timelines and graphics.

Ohio Archaeology is a valuable resource for readers, teachers and students who want to learn more about the lifeways and legacies of the first Ohioans.

The Ohio Archaeology book is one of four components to the Ohio Archaeology project, a collaborative initiative led by Voyageur Media Group, Inc., a nonprofit organization dedicated to the creation of public media about science, history and culture. The Ohio Archaeology project includes the development of this companion book, the "Ancient Ohio" art series and a companion website for the delivery of educational materials.
