"I chose to transfer to Lake Superior State University because of the personal attention I would receive. I did not want to attend a large university where I would be a number lost in the masses. The well-rounded curriculum allowed me to obtain my position at John Deere. Having a good balance of theory and hands-on knowledge is critical for my position and Lake State gave me a good foundation in these skills."

Title: Earth Works: Ancient Newark, Ohio
Movie ID: VT6270
Movie Number: 6270
Description: Nearly two thousand years ago, what is now Newark, Ohio, was probably the greatest ritual center of a flourishing prehistoric civilization. Using detailed computer models, this film presents the monumental works of sacred architecture that were built across this ancient landscape by the people we call the Hopewell. Here it is possible to see the entire Newark complex reconstructed as it was measured by the Salisbury brothers in 1862. You will: see its vast, open setting in a man-made prairie, witness the moonrise over the central axis of the Octagon, see the Great Hopewell Road stretching to the southwest, visit a Native village along the riverbank, enter the Great Circle as it may have looked to those who built it, discover the possible meanings of this great earthen architecture. The Hopewell built many embankments, mounds, roadways, and enclosures throughout the Ohio Valley region; but only a few of them survive today. Our commitment is to reconstruct "digitally" what can not be reconstructed actually: helping to illuminate these Native American cultures on whose sacred ground much of middle America has been built, and helping them to take their rightful place as part of our shared North American heritage.
