Over the last decade, Heartland Earthworks Conservancy has worked to identify, preserve, and educate the public about the hundreds of other Hopewell ceremonial earthworks in Licking Co. & southern OH

Although these earthworks are not designated World Heritage sites, they are no less important to gaining a better understanding of the construction and use of these places by indigenous people in the Ohio River valley some 2,000 - 1,600 years ago. This presentation will discuss Heartland Earthworks Conservancy's research at other earthworks in Licking County and beyond using noninvasive archaeological geophysical survey methods to find "destroyed" and previously unknown earthworks, what we learn about them when doing so, and our work with landowners to preserve and interpret these important places.

Al Tonetti is President of Heartland Earthworks Conservancy, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to advance the preservation of ancient earthworks in southern Ohio. Mr. Tonetti is a former President of and current Trustee and Chair of the Government Affairs Committee of the Ohio Archaeological Council, a nonprofit organization representing the interests of professional archaeologists working in Ohio. In 1974, Al began working as an archaeologist while a graduate student at Ball State University. Before he "retired" in 2017, Mr. Tonetti spent over two decades as Cultural Resources Specialist in Archaeology and History, and Safety and Education Coordinator, at ASC Group, Inc., a private, for-profit consulting firm headquartered in Columbus. For 15 years, he was the Archaeology Survey Manager at Ohio's State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO), and prior to that three years as SHPOs Regional Archaeologist at Wright State University, and three years as an archaeologist for the Indiana Department of Transportation.
