Our 2014 Ohio Archeology Summer Lecture Series kicks-off, Thursday, June 5th at 7:30 P.M. with Paul Pacheco presenting, Archaeological Investigations at Datum H: Exploring Ohio Hopewell Activities at the Edge of Hopewell Mound Group.

The joint 2012 SUNY Geneseo/Bloomsburg University field school, in collaboration with Jarrod Burks of Ohio Valley Archaeology Inc., conducted targeted archaeological investigations at Datum H, a site located about 300 meters northeast of the Hopewell Mound Group. Our goal was to identify the distribution and density of artifact types and identify and sample variation within feature contexts, while at the same time disturbing less than 5% of the overall site area. Investigation methods included magnetometry, magnetic susceptibility, shovel test pits, trenching, and partial feature excavations, including soil samples from all feature contexts for flotation. This presentation represents an overview of the methods, results, and preliminary conclusions of our investigations. A final purpose of this paper is to place Ohio Hopewell activities at Datum H within the broader context of our current understanding of Ohio Hopewell settlement patterns, especially as informed by middle-range archaeological theory.
