“The Hopewell Heist” Tuesday


Learn about “The Hopewell Heist” in the September 12th meeting of the Mound City Chapter of the Ohio Archaeological Society. 

Jeffrey Wilson, president of the Friends of Serpent Mound, will tell the largely unheard-of story of how the entire 400,000-plus Hopewell artifact collection was stolen at the close of the Chicago World’s Fair in 1893...and one man’s attempt to recover it.

The meeting starts at 7 Tuesday evening.  Arrive early to share artifacts and the latest archaeological news.
