A Wonder of the World

These walls were once the center of an ancient civilization. The Octagon Earthworks, like a modern cathedral or county fairgrounds, were a focal point for the social and religious activities of the Hopewell people about 2000 years ago.

Octagon Earthworks are a major part of the Newark Earthworks - the largest set of geometric earthen enclosures ever built.
