One function of the large earthwork complexes, such as the one found at Marietta, was to track the passage of seasons through astronomical observations. Aligned along the parallel walls of “Sacra Via” is the winter solstice sunset. On December 21st at 4pm join Castle archaeologist Wes Clarke for this virtual solstice sunset watch at Sacra Via Park. During this program, Wes will discuss the astronomical alignments of Marietta’s mound structures.
