As the leaves have fallen leaving the trees bare at the end of autumn, guests will be able to clearly view the 2,000-year-old earthen walls as the sun rises on the shortest day of the year. Experience the solstice as ancient people may have done over 2,000 years ago. Guests will learn about the importance of the archaeoastronomy used in the Hopewell Culture.
