In 2016, the Friends of the Museums – Campus Martius Museum engaged Archaeologist Wes Clarke to collect all known written materials, maps, and studies relating to the Marietta and Washington County Earthworks. On Monday night Wes will present preliminary findings and a new video on the Marietta Earthworks completed for the Friends of the Museums – Campus Martius.
The video provides a visual introduction to the area’s ancient Native American cultures and the historic early investigations into their monumental earthworks as well as contemporary archaeological investigations. The video production also features recent magnetometer and ground penetrating surveys at Quadranaou platform mound and drone photogrammetry surveys conducted for the Friends by Dr. Jarrod Burks and Ohio Valley Archaeology, Inc. The program includes materials prepared by archaeologist Wes Clarke, archival materials from the Campus Martius Museum, Washington County Public Library, Marietta College Legacy Library, and Ohio History Connection.
The video was produced by Voyageur Media Group. Voyageur Media Group, Inc. is a 501c3 nonprofit organization dedicated to the creation of public media about science, history and culture. Established in 1998, Voyageur has worked with academic institutions, museums, and communities in the development of dozens of award-winning documentaries, books, companion websites and educational resources about archaeology and Native American cultures, including: Searching for the Great Hopewell Road, Ohio Archaeology: An Illustrated Chronicle of Ohio’s Ancient American Indian Cultures, the “Ancient Ohio” art series, the Making Archaeology Public Project MAPP (national introduction, Kentucky and New Mexico); and seven episodes in the on-going Kentucky Archaeology & Heritage Series.
