Mounds of Marietta: Reminders of Others Who Walked These Lands


January 26 11am Guest Speaker: Wesley Clarke

Category: Sunday Services

With the Winter Solstice recently behind us, it's timely to learn that sonar has recently revealed that the mounds in Marietta were constructed to note other important points in the cycle of the year. Wesley Clarke will share with us a presentation that will include the astronomical alignments on the Marietta earthworks. Wes is currently the archaeologist with The Castle and the chief educator at the annual Winter Solstice Watch at Sacra Via Park in Marietta. The 2019 event was attended by more than 200 people.
