As part of our Ohio Archaeology Month celebrations, Skeeter Kish will present his recent archaeological research at the Bauer site in Norton Township, Summit County. The Bauer site is a prehistoric Hopewell site originally excavated in the 1910’s and 1920’s. The Hopewell were an archaeological culture centered in Ohio between roughly AD 1 to 400. The Hopewell were known for their wide-reaching trade networks that moved exotic materials throughout North America long before the arrival of European explorers. Skeeter will be presenting the findings of this important excavation, placing the findings at the Bauer site into the broader context of the Cuyahoga and Tuscarawas River Valleys.
