newark earthworks

a drawing of the original earthworks across the city of newark in ohio. these have been mostly covered up by contemporary development but originally they went from one side to the other side of the town.

i highly recommend going to the circular park shown on the lower right hand of this drawing. it’s quite an interesting experience to orient yourself in relationship to the map when looking at the bronze plaque showing the extents of the landscape in front of you.

it’s absolutely uncanny how similar this work looks to the recently discovered extents at stonehenge.
