Archeologist Bret J. Ruby discusses area ancient earthworks


Archeologist Bret J. Ruby, Ph.D., discussed “Ohio’s Ancient Earthworks: From World Center Shrines to World Heritage Sites” during a recent talk on campus. Ruby is chief of resource management at Hopewell Culture National Park. The event was sponsored by the OU-C cultural committee.

Ruby has been heavily involved in excavation work at the Hopewell Mound Group and is an expert in Native American culture in the area. He has authored several papers about his professional pursuits.  As OU-C celebrates its 70th anniversary in 2016, many campus events are focusing on the history and heritage of the campus and the region it serves, and this talk supports that theme.
