Tammie L. Gerke, teaching professor in Geology at Miami University, will share the geology, archaeology, history, and other interesting information as we trek across the U.S. Talks will include visits to the southwest, upstate New York, and the midwest as we look at the new Ohio UNESCO sites. Get your questions answered and participate in a lively discussion on these national treasures.

Discover the eight newest UNESCO World Heritage sites in the US, all of which are located in Ohio! All eight are Hopewell culture earthworks built between 2,000 and 1,600 years ago in the central region of the state. This presentation will provide an overview of the Hopewell culture and each of the eight sites.
