Archeologist Brad Lepper gave a tour of the Newark Earthworks, which are the largest set of geometric earthworks found anywhere in the world. He talked about how the Hopewell people created and used the pre-historic mound structure and how some of it was preserved.

C-SPAN’s Local Content Vehicles (LCVs) made a stop in their “2012 LCV Cities Tour” in Columbus, Ohio, on July 9-12 to feature the history and literary life of the community. Working with the Time Warner Cable local affiliate, they visited literary and historic sites where local historians, authors, and civic leaders were interviewed. The history segments air on American History TV (AHTV) on C-SPAN3 and the literary events/non-fiction author segments air on BookTV on C-SPAN2. close
