About the Author

Mark Lynott was for many years archaeologist with the US National Park Service and an Adjunct Professor at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln.


Mark Lynott has given us a successful account of the earthwork centers of southern Ohio and one that complements previous treatments focusing on grave lots, ritual production, and artifact-based interaction. It is a useful addition to our understanding of Ohio Hopewell and it will be read by generations to come. * Midcontinental Journal of Archaeology *
Well illustrated with photos and drawings. A must for those interested in Hopewell and for scholars around the world researching ceremonial earthworks. * CHOICE *
Hopewell Ceremonial Landscapes of Ohi is, in my estimation, the most authoritative, up-to-date, and attractive overview of ancient North America's allimportant Hopewellian world (c. 150 b.c.-a.d. 350). The book's authority and up-to-date quality rest on the late author's decades-long experience with the archaeology and archaeologists of this all-important indigenous cultural phenomenon. * Landscape History *
