The Fort Recovery Historical Society received $17,500 for an archaeological field school and ground penetrating radar (GPR) survey at Fort Recovery. A newly discovered 1793 map of Fort Recovery and the GPR survey of the area around the fort will guide archaeological excavations during the field school. These efforts will likely revise current understandings of the fort and one of the two nationally significant battles that occurred there during the Ohio Indian Wars of the 1790s.
Heartland Earthworks Conservancy (HEC) received $10,000 for a magnetometer survey of 35 acres at the Steel Earthworks, Ross County. The survey will enable HEC and its preservation partners to better plan for the conservation of important archaeological features at this Ohio Hopewell ceremonial earthwork site.
