Re: [sl] Fw: Project seeks to spark new interest in ancient monuments
- this was a nice contribution.
the situation at the Newark Ohio Octagon is disgusting.
a private golf course has been built on the site and has existed for years.
As noted the place is hardly ever open to the public.
this is one of the most amazing mound sites in the US.
the state could suspend the the country club's lease any time.
but then they would have the cost of maintaining the site.
overall awareness of mound culture is relatively high in Ohio.
maybe a change is coming soon.
