Save the Oberting Hopewell Sioux Ceremonial Earthwork from Archaeological Destruction!

The Oberting earthwork dates to 200 B.C. and is one of the only hilltop enclosures in Indiana.  It is now under threat by Indiana archaeologists.  One only needs to see the destruction at the New Castle Earthwork site that has been nearly obliterated by archaeologists, to see what the fate of this earthwork and burial mounds is destined for if Indiana archaeological grave robbers are given access.

Rare photo of Indiana's university archaeologist's criminal activity destroying the largest burial mound at the New Castle mound and earthwork site. This mound aligned with another to the west to mark the equinox sunset for over 2000 years, before being obliterated by these idiots.

Central mound within the large circular enclosure at Mounds State Park, marked the alignment with the winter and summer solstice for over 2000 years before being destroyed by Indiana University archaeologists, who were clueless to importance as a solar marker.

Archaeologists will destroy the mound, remove the skeletons and put them in a box at the university. Indiana archaeologist have never preserved any site in the state, and there is no reason to believe that the Obeting earthwork will suffer the same fate as so many of the mounds and earthworks an d simply be destroyed.
