2007 Ohio Historic Preservation Office Award Recipients

University of Cincinnatiís Center for the Electronic Reconstruction of Historical and Archaeological Sites (CERHAS) for EarthWorks, a virtual reconstruction of Ohioís monumental earthworks.


Since 1998, John Hancock and his associates and students have developed computer models and animations depicting Ohioís ancient earthworks. The project has proved to be an excellent means of teaching about Hopewell culture and Ohioís archaeological heritage, capitalizing on interactive computer technology to help illustrate relationships that might not be apparent otherwise. The EarthWorks exhibit has appeared at Chillicotheís Hopewell Culture National Historical Park; Newark; Fort Ancient; the Cincinnati Museum Center; and at the Ohio Historical Center in Columbus. The Center for the Electronic Reconstruction of Historical and Archaeological Sites is a program of the University of Cincinnatiís College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning. In addition to its work on the ancient monuments of Ohio, the Center has done virtual reconstructions of Troy, Psalmodi, White Water Shaker Village, Midea, Argive Shrine, the Pope House in Lexington, KY, and the Cave of Lascaux.
